misquito walleye

Discussion in 'Northeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by bassstalker, Jul 5, 2007.

  1. fished misquito tues for walleye and could not get anything, well afew cats. i was using a jig and worm off the bottom. is it worth it to troll in inland lakes? if so, what is the set up? dipsys, spoons , harness ? any help would be great . thank you.
     
  2. Just as suggestions, try bottom walkers with harnesses, hotntots, any minnow imitations-and use inline sinkers to control the depths of the lures based on where you might be marking fish. Basically, some of the things you alluded to which might be used on L. Erie, just a little downsized since the average fish will be smaller(usually!) Expect crappies of size with the minnow baits esp. the tots!
     

  3. I troll B/B with a one hook harness , deep water . I do ok. green or orange are my choices.

    The Bear Paw crawler spinners (small blade, single hook), usually produces walleyes at Mosquito during the hotter summer months. Troll them just fast enough to get the blade spinning.
     
  5. Ill take the Tots! Chrome and blue in early mornings in 18fow. Seems they suspend just off bottom. Dont think theres much off a thermocline set up on a shallow lake but the deeper ones are. Fish depth hinges on the weather. All in-land lakes have bait strung out in the colder layer with fish under it till dark. Im not to far off trollin 15fow at night on the dam end of Mosquito with its water clarity. Maybe some lead during the daylight hours.

    16 ft.... wow. Thats some clear water. I've also been fishing there for a long time and noticed how clear the water has gotten. I was down in the crane area fishing jigs and got a snag. Pulled it loose and had a 4" clump of zebra mussels on it. :mad: EZ, i'll pm you.;)

    Lots of zebra mussels in Mosquito. The water is definately getting real clear. It will make the weeds grow deeper and thicker. I will change things, fishing wise, for sure.

    I am also in a 14ft sea nymph but it doesn't look like a sea nymph anymore. I customized the whole boat and painted it green. I have a 25hp mariner on it and a minn kota bow mount. It is starting to show signs of wear after about 9 years so I will be doing some work on it soon but it is going to stay green. Good Luck at pymy.
