Lake Mitchell Walleye Fishing 5/17/13

Lake Mitchell 4 FOW
Lake Mitchell 4 FOW
Lake Mitchell afternoon walleye trips.  We fished Lake Mitchell on Thursday and Friday afternoon hoping to find the walleyes in shallow after dark.  Thursday we started fishing at 7pm and caught lots of pike and a few sunfish while trolling in 4 to 9 FOW on the south shore.  At dark we moved in closer and hooked our first walleye in 4 FOW and lost another.  The walleye action was quick and right at dark.  By 10:00pm the bite was over and we fished on till 1am without another hit. 
Friday afternoon we got out at 7:30pm and trolled the East side of the lake in shallow and hooked two pan fish and one pike.  No walleye and a very slow evening of fishing.   The water temp was  57 to 59 F and the weeds are down.   We will be back on Houghton Lake Thursday night.
Good Luck...
