I am just getting back into fishing after being away from this wonderful sport for 10 years. I currently am fishing Tanners Lake in Oakdale offen, but as some of you know that lake has kinda died from its wonder years. I am currently looking for a couple of good hot spots. If you know of any please let me know. I am trying Bald Eagle this weekend, anytips on that lake?
Welcome to My Fishing Pals. Glad to have you aboard!
This time of year, fish the north end of the Island in the drop-off. Might want to try the drop-off by the buoys about half way up the north side. I would also try the points up north on the east side. Some crappies and ocassional walleye during the day to dusk. I see a lot of people putting in boats at dusk for what could possibly a night bite, though I have never fished it at night... someday, I am going to give it a try.
If you are going on a weekend GO EARLY!!! You will never get a place to park your trailer. I am talking about getting there at dawn.
Leeches, minnows - lindy rigs or bobber, plain hooks. I sometimes use lime green. There is some good Muskie fishing in there too, though I am not a person who has gotten hooked on the "fish of 10,000 casts."
There is a wide variety of fish in there. Crappies are abundant, walleyes a bit harder to find. Good largemouth bass fishing too, if you are so inclined.
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
