 » #75 Channel Marker

The last stop before Burt Lake, early morning is the time to be here. Two good walleye holes are on each side of the marker. The deer also like this area and can often be seen walking down for water with a great view of the sunrise.
   A good way to fish the holes is to use a lead-head jig and a minnow. Toss the bait just past the hole and move it down and up the drop. When you see marker #73 you are entering the Burt Lake channel at the end of Crooked River. Line it up with marker #71 and you can enter Bull Head Bay. I like to troll rattle traps out of the channel and through the 8 feet flats of the bay to the south of the channel markers. Some nice walleye and pike have found their way into my boat from this area.
