Van Hook Walleye Fishing Report
July 29, 2016

right now is about as good as it has been all summer. All this week limits of
really nice fish have been coming in from a variety of patterns. We have caught fish
on spinners and crawlers in 5 feet of water, lindys and crawlers/leeches in 14 to 20
fow, and some really nice fish at 25 fow too. Come find a spot holding fish, use your
electronics to find where they are holding, drop a bait in and go catch them!
are plenty of fish around in lots of places. Find a hump, bump, or island and fish
you see them on the sonar!
My personal best pattern is 16 to 23 fow on lindys and
crawlers or leeches.
Just pull onto a hump without boats, use your sonar to graph the
area looking for fish on or near the bottom. If you don't see fish, move on to another
Lots of boats catching fish, will spook all the good ones. The fish are
everywhere, use your electronics to find them, NOT YOUR BINOCULARS.

The summer has been really good fishing and is finally becoming more consistent. We
are taking reservations by phone or email. If you have a specific date in mind, please
get your reservation in soon. Quite a few dates are already taken. Look out walleye!
If you see us on the water, come on over and say hi. Most of all, be safe out there!
See you on the water!
