Comments

Dr.Boehm Says: Weeds on the littoral zone provide the majority of the cover. Northern Pike clearly offer the most action in this habitat. Spinnerbaits, in-line spinners and floating minnow-type lures are a good choice. Sturgeon are a popular species during the breif September to October season. Sturgeon are caught by still-fishing with a variety of baits on the bottom. The inlet area is the best area for the occasional "monster" Muskie that swims these waters. Walleye success is highest in the spring using a jig and a minnow.
