Thanks for the compliments. I always enjoy evenings like that even though I'm not on the water. smirk.gif

I learned a heck of a lot about summertime 'eyes! I've never had good luck with walleyes in the heat of the summer, but now I've got some strategies that might actually work. Keep up the good work TO!!! How about a seminar a week? Haha....

Oh, they work. smirk.gif

Every week would be tough just because work and fishing would get in the way. I'd have to give up sleeping. grin.gif

Good job on the Shallow water artificial eyes Seminar. Lots of good stuff there. I figured out how to try to convince my "spinners & minners" co-fisherpersons to try artificials; Let them use a beetle spin tipped with a leech or minner should do the trick.....

TO - I went out to Madison last night to try some of the techniques you were talking about in the seminar. I bought a brand new shiny #5 shad rap bluegill to try. First cast by the rocks by the north side launch and BOOM a strong bite. I'm fighting this guy and get him to the side of the boat. It 's a big pike (I would say 5-6 pounds). I'm reaching for the net and snap, the line breaks (the steel leader didn't break). I get to see this guy swim off with my new 6 dollar lure. Moral of the story: listen to TO, and buy lots of shad raps!

By the way, 6 out of 10 casts with weeds? Try 10 out of 10 with weeds. Holy lake strangulation Batman!

Don't be afraid to rip (i.e. abrupt twitching or jerks of the rod tip) your lure as you retrieve. This will help keep your lure clean as you bring it in and also the change of direction in your lure often times can trigger a bite. Oh, ditch the leader too. grin.gif

Any chance of getting the abbreviated version, since I missed the seminar? Are you looking for "lipped" shorelines (more depth at the water's edge?)

Do you have a method for eliminating water?

Thanks for the help - or pointing me in the right direction...

The abbreviated version would be tough. Perhaps you could send me an e-mail at info@tightlinesguiding.com and we could try to work through your questions from there.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
