walleye location

11 posts in this topic

Hey I have my dads boat for one more day. I have had a lot of trouble locating walleye this week. All I need to know is at what depth they are at and what baits are working. Any other information would be helpful. Thanks guys.

2 - 4' of water adjacent to fresh weed growth that is emergent. Cranks casted into or parallel to these types of areas has been key.

The shallow bite continues to be strong. I was out last night and will be again in the morning. The 24+" fish are starting to show. grin.gif

I'll post a more detailed report in the morning when I return from the lake.

If you're not pulling weeds off 2 out of 4 casts, you're not in the right area. grin.gif Reel as fast as you need to. The fish will get to it if they want it.

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        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.
