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 haven't been doing as good as you my biggest this summer is 25. but have been getting lots in the 14-20 range. jointed red craw has been hot for my boat. also fire tiger has been doing well. earlier i was getting fish trolling 3 ft of water seams they have moved out to 8-15 fow.

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!

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
