I'm heading to Clearwater Lake in Wright County tomorrow evening (Weds 8/12). Anyone fish there within the last week or so that has advice to offer? I'll be fishing in the evening until dusk, looking for Walleye, Northern, Crappie, and LM Bass.

Thanks!

If the water is finally warming up the topwater bite for largemouth shoud be working in the evening. Fish the reedlines for Largemouth bass. The closer they are to deep water, the better. Cast up into the reeds a few feet and twitch the bait out. I have found this to be a very effective way and exciting way to catch Largemouth. Mann's Rat's Scumfrog Bigfoot's are my favorites. The longer the cast the less chance of spooking the fish. If the topwater is not going try jigs and worms or craws on the outskirts of the reeds. I have also had luck at times in the lily pads with the same techniques. My best Northern came while fishing the same areas for bass.

That's awesome advice guys. Thank you.

I've had success with bass on Clearwater fishing the Northern shore of the South-East corner, from around the rim of the steep drop at the point, all along the vegetation line working East along that shore almost to the landing - usually using plastics whacky-style, or spinner-baits. Also had success casting cranks and shakey-head jigs on the East side humps.

I've never found Eyes on Clearwater, with one exception - early season - again, on the North side of that South-East corner along the steep shoreline. So, the advice to try the 30 ft range on the West side hump is welcome advice.

Any other help would be appreciated - and if you know where to find Crappies, or where and how to find Northerns, all the better!

Thanks guys!

Well, it was a slower night for me. One 17 3/4" LM Bass, and one 14 1/2" Walleye. Several other bites, taps, and hits, but nothing else in the boat.

Tried the advice here for a while - 30ft for Eyes on West side humps, and rushes into deep water for Bass, but no luck.

Had a few hits that seemed like Eyes just through the narrows in 14-20 ft trolling a leech w/spinner.

Both boated fish were caught on the West side of the first East basin hump. The Walleye on a leech w/spinner in 14' and the Bass on a neutral-buoyant shad-rap cast up into 3 ft and jerked out into 14. Many other Eye hits at that 14' depth.

It was a perfect night to be on the lake. All glory and credit to God.
