    Absolutely killed the walleyes last Saturday out at Calamus. This was my first trip to the lake, and was kind of expected to catch quite a few, but not many keepers. We put in a Nunda Shoals, and headed to the North Side of the lake around the Windmill Hills area. My uncle was with us and he had fished the lake before and had success working the edges of the large flat located in the vicinity. Wind was really stiff out of the south, and it blew directly into the shoreline we fished. We anchored up for awhile, but had only a few short fish to our name. After a while, we to used the wind to drift bottom bingers and spinners on the flat, and we also used large jigs with crawlers too. The key depth was when it changed from 14 ft. to 9 ft., but we caught them all the way into 4 ft. We started nailing keeper after keeper doing this, and it almost got comical after some time of repeatedly doing this. We ended up with our limit of 12 all between 18″ and 22″, and my uncle’s boat also got their limit of 12 doing the same thing we were doing. It was an awesome trip, and I’m glad so many people are hitting Sherman nowadays.. as there were not THAT many boats on the water. Definitely will be back there; it was one of the coolest lakes I’ve ever visited.

    Nice job. With gas being so high, Calamus could stay rather un-busy this year. Keep wanting to get up there, but just not enough hours in the day.

    yeah, I would say now is the time to get after them up there. Everyone was getting them pretty good. Zach, do you still write articles for Buzz Marine? I use to enjoy reading those, as they were full of great info! And by the way, this site rocks

    You can find my reports here on IDA now Doc. But next time you see somebody from Buzz’s, make sure you let them know how you feel about the lack of reporting that is going on there now. Maybe they will see the light and think about what is best for their patrons.

    Keep the reports coming and once again, WELCOME TO IDA
