The leadcore deep bite continues to improve with more walleyes showing up every time we hit the lake. The size of the fish, both walleye and pike, also continues to improve as well. Biggest walleye so far is 20", and biggest pike is 36". Once the water starts to cool, should start to see bigger 'eyes showing up. The lack of a thermocline has made things a little tougher this year, but the fish seem to be holding anywhere from 32'-40'. The midday bite has been best, but should change soon to an all day bite with the onset of fall and cooling of the lake and shorter daylight hours. On cloudy or really windy days, they are a little shallower, and on bright, calmer sunny days they seem to be a little deeper due to the clear water/deeper light penetration.
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
