Drove halfway across the continent to kayak fish Island Lake. Managed one fat walleye each with heavy effort. Couldn't find any spots deeper than 8 feet and water temps were 77 F. North end of lake was 5 feet deep maximum and 80 F. We saw walleye up in the weeds in 3 feet of water but couldn't figure out how to target them. Gravel launch area is good for canoes and small hand-launch craft and access is good compliments of landowner.

    I probably would have tried some floating cranks, sucks pulling weeds off every cast but sometimes it pays off.

    A hook a worm and a bobber a couple feet from the hook.

    Slip bobber with a leech. Although if you can make it over the top with a wake bait or shallow diving crank you can cover a lot more water.
