Fishing Report 8/23/2010

Posted by on August 23, 2010

It’s been another really good week for fishing. The Bass and Northern action has been good on Hubert, Whitefish, and North Long. Gull has been our go to lake for walleyes. Redtail chubs and/or Creek chubs on Lindy rigs pulled next to the weed lines have been working well for multi-species but the technique has really been working great for walleyes, not big fish but very nice eater size. The north end of Gull seems to be your best bet for walleye action with Upper Gull, Steamboat Bay and Wilson Bay being your best bet for Bass and Northern action, even some great Sunfish action going on down there. We had a major cold front go through last week along with 2-3 inches of rain cooling the surface water temps down to the lower 70’s making us think it would really slow up the fishing, but it hasn’t. Fishing has been much more productive in the morning trips, by afternoon the bite tappers off and the recreational activity really gets going, everyone is enjoying the winding down of summer. What 2 weeks and it’s labor Day! Where has the summer gone? The good news is that looking at the calendar tell us that we are only a few weeks away from the fall sow Walleye bite to start revving up, mid September to the end of October is my favorite time of the year. When these bigger female fish start biting, please remember there’s not that many of them population wise and to handle them carefully and practice catch and release.
