Love the lake, but don\'t have a boat. Anyone know where to fish off shore or a pier. We\'re new to the area. Thanks, my eight-year-old wants to catch a fish so bad he can\'t stand it. I know they\'re out there, just not sure how to get to them without a boat. Thanks.

Lake Maxinkuckee Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Walleye hit well off of steep drop offs. There is a weed bed or some kind of sand
bar in middle of north end where it gets pretty shallow fast. Trolled over
shallow and swam lure into the deeper drop off and got 4 walleye during AM hours.
Used small musky killer spinning baits with medium sized spoon.

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
