Knappys outdoor adventures has hit struble lake the last 2 years. Each year it was fished twice mid and during the fall. First I have to say we\'ve fished the lake many times years ago. Back in the 70\'s most of the anglers fished the lake for walleyes. It seemed during the winter on the hard water a lot of walleyes were taken. But nearly all were stunted fish. Top fish taken were just at legal with 90 percent being around 10 inches. During this time period jigs or minnow rigs were the norm. Now back to the present. After checking shocking reports made by the game commission. The size of the fish have shown considerate increase. So it was time to return to fish the lake and see how we would make out. although we havent fished at night yet I would suspect low light conditions would give up more walleyes than during the day. The Knapp crew has been fishing walleyes in canada waters for nearly 50 years along with The bay of Quinte and the eastern shore of Lake Ontario. These waters give up some giant fish but genetics and water size followed by seasonal movements are totally different than smaller lakes and rivers. Walleyes like structure that along with there main feeding habits in low light conditions. Or a good walleye chop on the water surface can give up some eyes. If you would like to try fishing for these fish get your depth finder out and look for brakes in contour. Example a 6 foot flat brakes to 10 foot in a very short distance. These tops of the 6 foot brake would be a first contact point that walleyes are coming into the shallows to feed. Many times while fishing canada we would concentrate that 6 to 10 foot brake to first make contact. trolling lures that run shallow on the 6 foot side of the boat and run deeper diving lures on the 10 foot brake until fish are located. Then we stop and cast or jig that area until numbers of fish are taken. As the sun goes down the fish come up to that 6 foot brake and scatter into the shallows. Thats when we usually throw lures right up to the banks. Keep in mind that if the winds have been coming from a constant direction the bait fish will be in the shallows on that wind ward bank. Rapelas in the size of # 9 to #13 our a favorite. The fire tiger works as does a blue with a orange belly or black and gold. Finnicky fish go small active hitting fish go bigger. My self I do all these but Love jigging the wobble jig with different colored grubs or a grub and a minnow. Match your bait with what swims in the lake. Hey we caught alot of perch there so that fire tiger looks like one. Ok now to the other species. On our trips there the salty spider or the wacky worm was a big catcher of largemouths. With the sun heating up the rocks on the dam area. Casting right into the rocks and dragging the bait slowly off bottonto the deeper water. Had bass picking up the offering and running off. I use a slugo hooked weedless crawling it threw the rocks to the deep. This has given up at least 40 lbs of bass in just one trip on the lake. Crappies were easy to catch. using 1/64th oz to 1/8th oz jigs and grubs or minnows drifted just off bottom in a wind controlled drift with the trolling motor. On one occasion we caught around 50 crappie during a 2 1/2 hours period with this approach. When it comes to yellow perch most are mixed with crappies but many were taken with the small jig in and around the weeds by the bank. Go to any search engine and go to knappys outdoor adventures there we have are successes from local lakes. fell free to check it out and contact me any time for info on what biting and where.

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 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.
