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.

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!

      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.

      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.

      Pulled my house a couple of days ago, but there are still a few fish biting at some spots. Very slow for me! Good roads out there yet as we plowed them after the last snow. Cliff

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??
