Shamineau help?

10 posts in this topic

I will be working in the area and I am thinking about trying Shamineau the next couple of evenings for the first time. Any suggestions on where to start? Lures? depths? structure? I am not looking for your secret GPS coordinates, just a little info to narrow down my search a little.

I would use the West end access.

This is a sleeper / Secret Muskie Lake, which means no one wants to say much

including the locals.

Muskies are doing well out there! Work the Island and Look for main lake cabbage.

Northern pike between 24 and 36 inches must be released.

Best of luck

WBM

That sleeper lake can really put you to sleep, it is best fished after labor day. It is that multiple fish lake or you can put up zero's for weeks on end. Talked to many locals who have found dozens upon dozens of dead ones washed up on his shoreline. Better fish it in the early am or you'll go nuts with the tubers, water skiers, jet skis, etc. They roar through the best fishing spots on the lake and now that the tullibee has recently been stocked by the thousands, I don't blame the fish for heading out after them in deeper water.

Been very hard out there this year. Saw one active small fish follow in 3 1/2 days of fishing this weekend but managed a 30incher while trolling for northern, go figure. was fishing anywhere from 6-12ft so maybe they are deeper...

    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
    • That's rough DrJ, were you on public or private land?   
    • They're finally playing someone outside of the central division tonight, so we'll see what happens. Did Sano get suspended for throwing a punch yesterday?
