Will be meeting friends for camping/fishing this weekend. Hopefully I've acquired a little knowledge about walleye. Had a good report that some where taken last weekend on crawler harnesses in 22-27 fow.
I'll give a follow up report! Happy fishing all!

Here's my report: a handful of gills and small perch were taken trolling purple crawler harnesses a half mile north of Big Bend and also 3/4 mile south of Newaygo State Park.
Next year I'm starting a new tradition at a new state park!
One more try a Hardy this evening!

If you really want walleye you should camp over by the Saginaw Bay. Tawas has a great state park and even if you can not find the walleye there is a variety of great fishing to be had right in Tawas Bay all summer long.

Hardy is a tricky place to walleye fish, we have tried a few times and struggled but the bass & pike fishing has always been great.

This years been exceptionaly hard fishing on hardy. I usually pull close to a two man limit out there every trip this time of year, but ive only wacked 6 keepers in the last 3 trips out. Fyi I troll deep with stick baits 20-40 fow right on bottom fairly quick 2.5_3.2 mph. Been geeting a lot of pike and a few toad smallies.

I haven't liked fishing reservoirs since my Army days. Hardy hasn't changed that feeling!

Sincere question...

What is the problem? Lack of stocking? Excess of party boaters? Should we just try this body of water in the fall? I have had little success as well. I don't want to give up...
