    Default Walleye near the islands?

    Anyone care to share some general information on where the walleye are around the islands? Havent fished for 2 weeks and last time out went to Border East of Kelly's. Boats were still going to the weather bouy at that time.

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    Fished about 2-3 miles east of Kelly's about a mile south of the boarder last week and did pretty well. I don't think you need to run clear to the buoy. Some boats starting to go back up the middle as well. Didn't try that myself.

    Let us know how you do. I'm heading out Saturday. Would like to avoid fishing among 100 boats if possible.

    Two of us fished 8/6 from 830-3pm. Started closer to Middle Bass island and trolled north to the bouy at Lucy's point. Some marks but could not catch any fish. Moved to East side of Gull Island Shoal and had a slow pick of Walleye with numerous sheephead and white bass mixed in. Finished with 6 in the box and 7 throwbacks. Our 6 fish were 22-26 inches . Also had one 12 1/2 inch perch. We fished mostly spoons and a Michigan stinger-Huckleberry(?) caught most of the fish. Purple and blue chrome were the other colors used. We fished 4 rods- 2 straight back with TT40's at 105 and 125. 2 #1 Dipsey's off the sides 70-90 back on 2 setting. Speed 2.4 to 2.9. We had good marks on the screen when we stayed in the deeper water 42-55 ft.

    We did much better with bandits and weight and trolled East rather than North.

    Got a late start Sunday morning 8/9/20 and ran to the same spot east of Gull island shoal that we fished Thursday. Two fishermen, four rods, this time with all bandits. Got 3 nice fish in first 20 minutes then nothing. Made a few more passes and eventually got 5 more Walleye. We had a self imposed time limit and finished with those 8 Walleye all in the 22-23 inch range. Still very good marks in that area. Water depth 42-55 feet holding the fish. What worked for us: Bandits w/2 oz at 125 back total. Speed 2.4-2.6. Bandits- Chrome, Purple and Firetiger.
