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.

      FYI 2 of the 3 landings near us were starting to look a little beat up yesterday. With the temps & moisture today along with more of same forcasted for tomorrow, I have to believe that access to the area lakes will be getting tougher.

      Still about 14-15 inches of ice...plenty of slop and water today. Access was very beat up when I left.

      Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend? I see Hunters point and Agate bay are closed due to cracks by shore. I usually fish the east shore but might have to be open to something else.... Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend?

      I took a break from walleye fishing on Vermilion and decided to chase crappies for a few days to get away from the crowds. Fun and a good bite also! Cliff
