Lake Roosevelt at night?
« on: June 05, 2024, 07:55:02 PM »
Anyone ever fish at night out on lake Roosevelt for walleye?(spokane arm) Iíve been doing alright during the day but it cuts into my home time with the kids, too little to fish so Iím curious if thereís a bite at night this time of year or if itís just a waste to go out super early? Going to try to be out on the water by just after midnight

Kids are never too little. If my daughter wasn't in a backpack she was in a crib on the bow of my sled! My brother bank fishes the Arm at night. Catches catfish and a few walleye

Watch for mismarked shallow areas on the spokane arm, had a friend take off a lower unit from this. i think he said around a #5 marker they have a very shallow hump on the "channel side" of marker.. IDK if the location is accurate but its an issue!

Catfish?  Are you talking little bullheads?  I heard those are not worth fishing for as they are so small.  I grew up chasing giant channels and wish we had more of those around here, other than the snake.
Right wing shooter, I aim for the left!!!

Nowhere in your incoherent rambling did you come close to what can be considered a rational thought. Everyone is now dumber having heard it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.

Brother just told me he has no idea what kind they are. Says they look like a catfish and some are about 5lbs.

There's definitely a good night bite. I've only been able to get out once this season so I can't speak much to what it's like right now since we've been 20-30' above the average water level this year. There's typically a big water drop around the spawn time and we didn't have that this year, not sure what sort of effect that has on them.

Memorial weekend I was throwing a jerk bait off the shore and got three perfect 18" eaters right away, this was at about 9pm so still kind of early.

But it would be my guess
