I'm going to Holcombe Flowage for opener this weekend. Any tips or advice fishing the lake.

Thanks

Try the deep drop right outside the entrance to Pine Lake. I've watched people pull fish in left and right in that spot. Can be frustrating though cause its a very small area, so one or 2 boats pretty much claim it all.

Went and hit Holcombe this morning with the oldest, just to see what we could find, and the answer was walleyes! Within the first 5 minutes of fishing Audrey put 2 in the livewell and one slot fish, while Dad still hadn't even caught a fish! He made up for it though. We caught somewhere between 20-30 walleyes, keeping 5, and only one crappie. Bite was pretty steady til 11 am, then everything shut off. What a beautiful day to be out. Here is Audrey with her slot fish from this morning, and a couple of nice eyes (don't mind the dirt)

Lots of good water both east and west of 27. If you have a decent sized motor there's no reason to limit yourself to one end or the other. East tends to be shallower with more stumps and weeds, west is deeper with more points, breaks, and turns. The fish will decide where they want to hold.

    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
