Best time of day for Lakers

7 posts in this topic

Going up on a fishing trip in 2 weeks and was wondering what is the best time for Lakers? We plan on fishing some new lakes for walleyes and crappies. We are trying to come up with a plan so we aren't wasting time when they don't bite.

Mornings are the best for lakers most the time. Fish crappie in the afternoon.

Fish lakers all morning and afternoon, then go for the crappies and eyes.

I have my best luck with lake trout from dawn - 2ish.

I agree with Superbee and Bruledrifter......Lake Trout in the morning and during the day, crappies and walleyes in the afternoon. I've never (in my limited experience) caught much for trout after the sun has hit the tops of the trees.

On ice, I seem to do best for lakers from about 11 a.m. to about 2 p.m., with the first hour after sunrise pretty good, too. If I was combining a trip, I'd fish lakers until 3 and then target the evening bite for 'eyes/crappies.
