Went to little campbell lake friday afternoon, couldn't get any trout to bite. We caught three tiny fish that looked like burbot. Any ideas what kind of fish this was?
Went down on the peninsula Saturday and chose Engineer lake to try. Explored around the lake just using jigs but couldn't get any bites. Went from parking area straight towards cabin and only found 8-12 ft of water the whole way there. Walked over to the north end and found a deeper hole there but no bites so we decided to run over to Hidden and check it out. If anyone has advice on bait or lures to try on Engineer lake would love to hear it.
On Hidden tried next to some holes just offshore and ended up catching two salmon smolt.
Went to one of the stocked Portage ponds sunday because it wasn't too far and we like the scenery. Had constant action the whole time we were there with fish hitting eggs, shrimp, and pink/orange jigs. It became a challenge to weed through all the small fish trying to get anything of size. We setup the hut so we could see down the hole, will have to remember beans or eggshells next time. The fish were swarming the eggs and seemed to love the aero jig. I wonder how much food is in those ponds for the fish as the biggest we caught was 11in.
Was a great time and can't wait to go back out next weekend
