Tried today, head of lake. Muddy and not a single bite. Tried everything I had from slow to high speed trolling to slow bait.
Same . Not even a sheepshead . From Frontenac to the head 7-18 foot of water ha. Saw the guide up there as well thought I was onto something . Nope lol
As most of you know, I don’t know a walleye from a sheepshead (although I can use sheepshead for bait in MN), but it’s a little early to be looking for any amount of fish on the upper end of Pool 4 in my opinion.
The MN DNR tracked walleyes for a year and put it into a report a long time ago (1999) but it’s still relevant today as they have an annual migration through out the 44 mile pool.
If your interested in improving your catch, you might want to read or at least skim though (it’s a long read) their report to see where the walleyes are at now. They will start filtering into the head of the lake but that’s normally closer to the end of Sept and many times in later Oct.
I’ll post a link in the next post if anyone has an interest.
