Never caught so many nice fish

3 posts in this topic

Was out on Pool 4 today and had the best day ever. We were long lining #7 shad raps 65-70 feet back pulling planner boards on our outside lines and running lead core with jointed wally divers 2 1/2 colors out. We were fishing in 13-16 feet of water. We caught a 29 1/2 inch walleye that must have weight 10+ pounds. A 26", 24.5", 3-23" and a bunch from 14-17 inchers. How has everyone else been doing?

I would say pool 4 is the hottest I have ever seen in years for this time of year.

I just got back from P4 for the evening bite. Caught plenty of "eater size" fish pulling cranks in the main channel. My larger fish came from dragging jigs on various current seams.

The fishing has been fantastic for most folks willing to experiment and work at establishing a pattern. I plan to spend a considerable amount of time on the water the next few weeks. It should be alot of fun if the bite holds up!

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
