|A West Lake 42.5" Pike|
|West Lake Walleye|
I knew the Mayflies would strike back right after I stated in a previous blog "the may fly hatch is over and gone." South and West Lake experienced a second hatch last Tuesday. Fortunately, the walleye have still been aggressive. Due to the hot weather, walleye have been slowly descending through the water column. Fish have been found as deep as 20 ft. Jigging over reefs and rocky points has been the most effective techniques. Trolling a wind blown shorelines with a Hot N Tot or a Shad Rap is yielding results.
Pike are hunkered down in the slop challenging fisherman to come and get them. Numerous fisherman have also reported fish holding around rocky points.
Hot spots for the majority of the lakes are the same as my last report. Remember to focus on the windy shoreline. Pick out a wind swept rocky shoal or a weed bed. Two days of wind beating a shoreline will stack up bait fish and predators will follow.
Pike: Johnson silver minnow, Mepps Musky Killer, Top Raider
Walleye: Flouro green Hot N Tot, 3/8 oz jig with yellow twister.
Good Luck on the water everyone!
