Hi Italo My name is Mike Billyack. Ive been watching your fishing shows for as long as I can remember and am a huge fan of yours. Im going fishing this weekend on Go Home Lake. If youre familiar with the lake we will be on a site just at the entrance of Pike Bay. Well generally be fishing for Walleye Pike and Bass. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for lures for this time of the year and the fish were going for. Thanks for all the great tips over the years! Kind Regards Mike

Hi Mike….Thank you for your kind words and for enjoying our shows over the years. I have not fished Go Home Lake, but I have fished Glouster Pool (just south of Go Home Lake), which is very similar in depth/structure/weeds/species. This year we have had a late spring with unusually higher and colder water in many areas. As you probably know, this weekend is bass opener and the bass should still be along the shorelines. They should be especially close to where they spawned. If you are targeting bass I would encourage you to fish shorelines that have a mix of small rocks/light weeds in-between boat docks. Good lures to use are the Rapala Husky Jerk #14, twitching it along the shorelines. Also, just fishing a 1/4 oz. jighead/ TriggerX 3″ curly-tail grub along the bottom. For pike there I would cast a Blue Fox Vibrax #3 & #4 spinner around any new weed growth and stumps or trees that are in the water. For the walleye, slow trolling a worm harness in 12-20′ of water should work well at the mouth of soft-bottom bays, along the shoreline breaks and also around points/shoals/reefs & bars. I have a feeling you may catch some of the largest walleye trolling the same areas at dusk/just after dark using a #11 Rapala Husky Jerk in the “clown-color”. Hope you have an excellent trip. I would love to see some of the images from the fish you catch. If you send those to my attention at info@canadian-sportfishing.com , I can brag about them on our website….God bless you, Italo
