Fellows Lake - Any Reports?

Recommended Posts

I have caught all of about 10 fish out of that lake in the last few years. Last week I snagged a nice 2 lb. largemouth though that was quite a surprise. I guess it proves there are fish in Fellows, however, they are usually tough to find. If you have a boat and can fish the south side of the lake, you're in business I'm sure.

I've goose-egged the last two Sundays on Fellows fishing for mainly for Crappie. I fished from the handicap dock the first time and there was a couple there who left just after I got there who had a nice stringer of slabs they had caught that morning early, but the bite was done by the time I got there. Yesterday, I rented a boat at the marina and spent 4 hours trying to get a nibble on jigs, minnows, worms, and even bottom fished with some shad. An hour each in the cove across from the marina, at the point of the middle of the lake, the upper end of the south finger, and a cove just south of the cable. Did not get a bite. I think it's just been too cold for them to be too active yet, but they should start soon. If the weather holds, you might try it next weekend.

By the way, I was fishing from 6 to 25 feet and everything in between...

The code word for Fellows is "Early" Get there before sunrise, and there will be about an hour period where the fishing can be incredibly hot. Unless you have a boat though, it seems to slow down very quickly when the sun comes out. Been my experience. I've had days in the early am when every other cast would see a white bass, crappie, lm bass, and even the occasional walleye and catfish.

Spent 4 hours on Fellows this morning. Fished the weed beds, the Northshore brush piles and some on the South arm. Swimming minnows, live minnows and jigs. Nothing to show for it. Parking lot was full so they had to have been biting sometime.

Been picking up some crappie while bank fishing. There are some that are shallow right now but most are still waiting in deeper water. Went with my family Saturday evening and fished off the tunnels. We caught about 20 between the 3 of us fishing minnows under a bobber about 4 feet deep. Also picked up a couple nice bass on a brush hog including a nice 3 pounder.

Unfortunately we got crowded out of our spot or we may have caught more. My sister and her boyfriend showed up to fish with us making 5 of us on the tunnel, which made it a crowded situation already. To my surprise another guy showed up and plopped his chair down right in the middle of us and proceeded to put 3 lines in the water. Kind of disrespectful. After getting tangled in his lines a couple times I was getting really frustrated. Then not 45 minutes later another guy comes along and drops his two lines in. Shortly after anther showed up with a couple lines. That made 8 people fishing the one tunnel, 3 of them with multiple lines in the water. I understand that it's a public lake and there are going to be other fisherman, but when there are already 5 people fishing a 20ft long area, you would think they would have the respect to find another spot. After all this wasn't opening day of trout season. Lol

Hooked into what i know for sure was a keeper muskie yesterday while fishing the bank for crappie and bass. he come out of the water fully twice before cutting my line. I've caught a couple before that were 36 & 38 and he was bigger than that. caught it on a orange and green 1/8 oz head with a purple silver flake creature jig in the cove by the ramp
