I am heading to Walker for the pout fest tonight. Can anoyone give me some advise on depths and favorite baits?

Thanks

Tonka,
Will be there, but probably not fishing much if any.

I would fish 30-60 feet deep. I like a bobber with a fathead about 2" off the bottom and a pimple on the other with a piece of meat. Generally the cork will go!!!

Fish after dark!

I've only caught 1 pout and it was on Winnie a few weeks ago. We were in 21' of water and it was suspended at 12'. I saw the mark on the vex and reeled up to it. We saw another one in 26' with the camera pointing up, it was suspended also. It looked to be about 10' below the ice. Both were big females the one I caught was just about 8 pounds and was great with melted butter. I've always thought they were bottom fish but I guess not. Buckshot rattle with minnow head.

Fishing is Life.

I had the same thing happen to me up there a few weeks ago too----fishing 30 feet and a blip shows up at twelve feet. I pull up and it hammers my bait---thought for sure it was a pike or an eye but it was a 8 pound pout----shocked the heck out of me.

They are ugly but tasty!

Catching pout is a little different than most fish. Its not about the bait, its about the attitude. You have to drop your line as though you are fishing for eyes or some other more worthy species. If you are convinced that you are fishing for anything but pout, you will catch them. At least thats what happens to me...ooooh, I still hate touching those things! Good luck!

Glow Northland Buckshot rattle Spoon with a smashed minnow or minnow head banging and settling on bottom. On 2nd rod try a minnow head and a full minnow on a jighead or bare hook just dangling off bottom on a deadstick or bobber. If you have some nice old half frozen smelt use that. Use fireline with a mono shocker and you will feal just the weight of those soft biters.

    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?
