I went up for one of my trips to Fish Lake this weekend. Spent Friday and saturday night camping in the rain and all day Saturday on the water.

It was a strange day on the water, alot of weather changes, wind changes, time with no wind at all, alot of fish but quality fish were hard to come by but we found some.

After 11 hours on the water on Saturday we probably boated 50-60 fish of all sorts (walleye, perch, pike, rock bass, sucker). One nice walleye came early during the rain from 3 feet of water on a jointed rapala in a firetiger pattern. Pike came from shallow bays and weedlines on a variety of baits, they weren't picky.

Once the sun came out the wind died and so did the fishing, we did manage to hook up with one nice pike on a buck tail but it came unhook near the boat. We also had a nice 3-4 pound walleye take a hit at that same buck tail in 2 feet of water along a bed of reeds. The thing acted more like a bass then a walleye. Maybe it was that Wallass that the DNR was considering putting on license plates.

It took the rest of the day to figure out what the new pattern was for the walleye. The had moved from very shallower points (2-4 fow) back out into more traditional spots once the cloud cover came back. Ended up getting a few more smaller eyes around 8:30-9:00. We ended up keeping 3 fish so we could have a fish fry back at camp the rest were released. The last walleyes of the day came on a 1/4oz jig and a fat head minnow fished very slow, the fish would barely hit the bait, you would cast out and be bouncing it along back to the boat and you would feel just a very little extra weight and you would have a fish on, none of the little taping you get used to, real finicky for sure.

All in all I thought it was a successful day on the water, we were able to pattern the fish in all different weather and wind and we kept finding them when one area would shut off. And we did all of this without any electronics. You know its a good day when you get back to the landing with some nice fish to clean and all of the guys there are grumbling how they couldn't find anything decent all day.

Thanks nofish,

I used to fish that lake a lot when I lived up there. Good to see there are still fish to be had.
