    I’m fishing there the last week of September. Fished it a few times in summer without great success. Any general depths or structure I should be targeting? Smallmouth and walleye. I know there are big fish in there but it’s big, deep snd clear. TIA

    Fishing at night is pretty much the only time I’ve had success for walleye. I always fish the humps on the NE side, my buddy like the south end. Had success on both, but only at night. Trolling, bottom bouncing, it all works.

    I’ll do some trolling. I did get a really nice pike on a big citrus shad bomber a couple of years ago. Night fishing will be a stretch for me. I’m staying down by the humps on the south end. I’ll give it a shot

    We went up years ago, the largemouth fishing in the lake on south of bridge was awesome. Remember that. We would barely make it under to round usually just to swim off the big sand bar, but we hit up some rockpiles in the evening and the smallies came alive with topwater. Bobber with crawler also got some.

    I bet most or all of my house that most of T. Boley’s clear water lake vids are from Round, Grindstone or Lac Court Oreilles.

    I can tell you about my lake which is in the general area. Just last weekend the smallies turned on. I caught a lot of quality fish. No puny ones. Ill chase them again this weekend but they seem to turn on about this time every year, peak for about 2-3 weeks then slowly taper off with the colder weather. The key is following them by following the bait fish. That has been my observation however my flowage is a bit different than the lakes. Either way this year I think your timing is right. Cross your fingers for decent weather. Not to change this post but even the muskies have gotten predictable by my cabin. I posted my best one two weeks ago then again last weekend I tagged an even bigger one in the same spot. Its getting repetitious now so I dont plan on doing it again any time soon.
