I'll be going there next week wth a buddy of mine.
My best guess is that with this abnormal cooling we should consentrate on long points with deep water access close to the creek channel.
Am I close?

Yes, I have been there many times but I was shore-bound and never able to really do any 'hot persuit'.
Did I mention that Ive never fished for walleye in my life? But the way it sounds I'll fish for crappie and end up catchin' walleye. But I'd really like to concentrate on one target fish.

Go to causeway [email protected] they will point u in eye direction. And they have them shad raps! Ive done better trolling than jigging in the weeds this year. Walleyes change day to day! Biggest eye this year is 22in caught last sat. Trolling. Lots of dinks.

I've seen some of the walleye that people keep from that lake. :confused:
Is there no size limit on the walleye at Mosquito?
If not, why not?
Maybe it's just me but under 15" is a catch and release senario in my book.
If I want to eat: crappies, perch, channels, even white bass or 'gills.

I sure hope that by this time next week I can report back that I caught my first walleye ever, but I really got a taste for a nice crappie fish fry.................
But, if I catch a walleye (no matter what size) I can promise two things:
1) It will go back. (first fish of any species always go back)
2) I'll snap a picture and post it here.
Thanks for all your help.

Got a whole mess of 8" perch, a few dink eye's, bunch of nice crappie (smallest kept was 9"/ biggest was 10.5") a few 8" gills.
Oh and my first, second, and third walleye.
And my buddy caught a nice channel.

We threw all those pretty (but small) perch back in to grow up a little so all I have are the bluegill, crappie and walleye. They are in the freezer cause I'm not done. I promised my dad a fish fry when he gets to feelin' a little better.
There were a few fish on the points that I spoke of in the first post (perch and crappie) but they seemed to be located for the most part on the main lake humps that had some structure on it. This time of year, the open water fish are constantly on the move but are still very structure oriented, at least that was the case yesterday.

Nice catch Lou, were you drifting/trolling on the eye? I went to Pymy on the 5th and took home some small perch and one nice croppie. I too am waiting for my first eye.

We marked the humps with fish or structure on them and drifted into them. I had a lindy bottom bouncer with a floating neon green teerdrop jig head/night crawler with a 2' lead on the walleye.
