Lake Chatuge fishing was slow today. We used Storm Blue Chrome Orange, Livingston Real Chad, Pumpkin Seed Worms. We even tried our luck at trolling. Went from one end of the lake to the other. Saw plenty of fish on the fish-finder however they weren\'t interested in whatever you presented. Could the \"spots\" have started there spawn.?

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 a new 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.
