walleye report

2 posts in this topic

Fished yesterday under some pretty challenging conditions. 20mph northwest wind. Big time cold front. Walleyes bit sporadically. We found them on the up-wind edge of several of the flats. 8 mile, 7 mile, shermans, and busters. We caught them with a variety of methods.... lindy rigs, short and long. Floating jig heads...chartreuse, white, and red. Plain kahle hooks too. Leeches worked the best for bait. We had 7 fish 24 to 28 inches. One "eater" at 15, which we also let go. Tried some trolling with tail dancers, but no luck with that. Did a little musky fishing last night as well. Got a 21 inch smallie on a pacemaker, and a nice pike too.

All I can say is, thank God for bilge pumps!

I was out on Wednesday--the fishing was brutal! Felt sea-sick after being out there. The Walleyes were not jumping in our boat--we used Lindys and Spinners on long snells. We had to work pretty hard for our fish.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
