    Mostly small sunfishes perch and an occasional bass. With so much other water around don't want to spend too much time on Whymore-or-less lake. Walleye you say ?????/ What? Why? Where? don't know of any walleye plants on the lake,do you? :confused:

    A couple of years ago, I ran into a guy at the boat launch who caught an 8 lber on the opener. He caught it trolling a crawler harness.

    I have had real good luck for walleyes on that body of water. I troll with boards and with crank baits and spinners.

    lp, thank you for adding so much to this thread.

    i have never done well on the few chances I had to fish this lake for walleye.... but I'm sure there are some out there, as I hear through the grapevine of some folks that do fairly well from time to time.

    They have been stocking them for years starting in 1999. The stocking database is a little messed up. Use Livingston as the county and the stocking report works. I have fished the lake but got tired of the non-fishing idiots, even on weeknights. We have caught some walleye but usually catch more pike than anything.

    On a lighter note, remember when Whitmore still had a few of these? This was taken in 1996 or 1997 and released back into the lake after the pictures.

    Thanks, it was fun. It was an accidental catch while bass fishing in the shallow bay at the south end. My dad was using a 6 foot rod with 4 or 6 pound test and a small white beetlespin when the muskie grabbed it in 3 feet of water. It probably could have just swam away but it kept circling the boat instead. I landed it by putting it's head in a trout net and lifting the rest of it.

    Lived on Whitmore Lk from 1990 to 1993, but didn't hear of anyone catching 'eyes back then. There used to be one old guy who would take his boat and troll for muskies every chance he would get, but only real early in the morning before any skiiers got up. According to the locals, he had a successful reputation as a musky fisherman.
