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.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
