I did from a boat late last week. Caught lots of bullheads and heard about three walleye being caught. There was about 7 boats out there each day all catching bullheads. Water temp was 77 degrees at the surface. Lake was anywhere from 4 to 10 feet deep. Boat ramp was still easily useable.
Fished there last night and today. Water temp was 77deg max depth we found was 11ft. The water was murky and had lots of weeds and leaves in it. You could only see about 1ft. We started off pulling worm harnesses and lindy rigs at .8 mph. Many different colors from shartruse, orange, copper, rainbow, yellow and SS. Nothing but bull heads. Adjusted speeds by .2 untill we hit 2.5mph. Got tired of catching bull heads so we switched over to shad raps, tail dancers, rattling rogues. From 1mph to 2.5 and got nothing but bull heads. Final tally of fish was 72 bull heads one big cat and a 31in carp on a worm harness. Ramp is still usable but is hard to launch alone. Gates are open from 5am to 9pm. Good luck!!!!
Can you elaborate (time of day, lures, etc)? I usually don't ask specific questions like that, but it sounds like you're the only one on them. I'd love to catch a few walleyes, but I'd hate to drive all the way out there for bullheads.
Mr pink what day are you thinking of going out if you do? I always catch a few eyes when i go to jumbo. I am almost thinking of trying it on sat. Maybe you could carpool with me, fish together? I also have a backup plan if it don't work out.
Unfortunately, I'm never good for Saturday. A buddy and I were thinking of taking his boat out on Wednesday. If you're free I could talk to him about taking you with...otherwise, maybe you and I could go Sunday.
My favorite spot is next to the outlet towers probably the deepest part of the lake too. Try a slip bobber n a crawler or minnow. Make sure u bring back a conditions report so every body can get out there and salvage the fish when they start biting. Thanks in advance.
hmm turns out i cant go tonight... dam garage sale i have to handle while my parents are out at work. I'll be going out tomorrow night for sure though. If anyone wants to join me i'll be trying the South Point of Jumbo around 8 pm. If thats too low than i'll head to the outlet. And still not sure where to get the minnows if anyone can tell me.
Me and the fam will be fishing jumbo @ 6 in the am tomorrow from shore does anybody have any info of where to fish from ? We are not going after trout but mainly cats,walleye.we will be using worms and liver and some stinkbait any info would be great....
