I just moved to Huron awhile ago, and I've been captivated and equally mystified by this lake. Looking at the stocking reports and fish surveys, it looks like an incredible walleye lake. However, I've fished it five times now through the ice without a bite. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

from what I know about bryon its pretty shallow bowl lake with not a lot of structure.

ive heard of reports coming out of there for pearch but nothing to size. sorry cant offer more info for you. I would suggest just moving around alot until you get something. Do you have a flasher or camera?

I have a graph rigged up for ice fishing that works alright. Not as good as a quality flasher, but it'll mark fish.

The lake itself reminds me of a squished version of Pelican, shallow with slough/backwater areas attached. From what I hear around town its got a good population of nice walleyes, and GFP netting surveys and stocking reports match up with that info. The problem is that I can't get anything to bite.

I've marked a few fish, but like I said, no bites. My problem may be that I've done most of my fishing after dark, and because of the turbid water there isn't much of a night bite. I'm a little hesitant to go cruising all over the lake b/c I don't know if there are any springs on it. I've covered some water, and I have some areas marked on GPS that I know are safe, but I'd like more info on that before I go driving across the lake.

Dont know if this is true or not but I heard something about this lake having alot of bait fish in it. There may be some fish in there but if they get alot to feast on already it may be hard to coax them into biting.

If you could locate the bait fish you might be able to locate fish. I get to huron quite often and usually try to fish thompson or some other place.

I have never tried byron maybe I will have to give it a stab one day.

Here is a link to map if you dont have it already: Map Link

Yeah, maybe its the baitfish. Well, I'll keep trying. Its too close to town, I have to figure it out. I went to Thompson one night but I don't know my way around it very well and I didn't want to exploring at night. I fish oldham at night a lot in the summer/fall and the north end in the spring, but I'm not familiar with the ice conditions there. I'm originally from watertown, so I've concentrated my past fishing efforts on that area.

Byron doesn't seem to get much fishing pressure. There's cabins on it, but I've never seen more than 2 other people out fishing while I was there. A couple of permanent shacks and one other guy that seems to go out there pretty often, but that's it.

don't know if its baitfish prolly bullhead. the lake is covered with those. as for walleyes it is a great lake. my uncle has a cabin on it and in the summer i'll fish it prolly 5-6 times. ( don't know about the winter ) but in the summer i mostly troll bottom bouncers and spinners with crawlers. catch alot of bullheads but when a walleye hits it there big. my biggest in there is a 31 in. 10 pounder. in the spring i like to pitch jigheads and crankbaits. can't tell you where i nail these fish ( family secret )
