Anyone have thoughts/tips on fishing these lakes in Mid-September? I know they hold decent numbers of Walleyes and Northern; but I don't see Smallies on the lake data reports. How about any adjacent lakes?
There are both smallies and largies in Ensign...I like chasing the bucketmouths, if only because it's kind of neat (to me, at least) to catch a fish that's not all that widespread up there.
By mid-September, it's likely the smallies will be deep. If you can find them, you can have a very fun time indeed. For largies, I'd find the greenest, healthiest weeds possible. They'll most likely be there. Pike will be in those same weeds, too.
