Does anyone know of any spots near that access that i could walk to cause i dont have a boat. Im willing to hike a couple miles as long as the bite is good.Or of any spots other than Jordan that i could drive to then walk. I live in New Prague and im willing to make the drive...

My buddy and I fished East of the 282 north bridge and west of the access this weekend. The entrance to the access is just before the bridge on the right hand side. Theres a huge sprawling area of no current to the right and to the left of the access and its never busy. About 30 feet out is when the current hits, and its deeper. The bottem is Sandy with nice sized scattered rocks. My buddy caught a 15+ pound carp, and i reeled in a few baby cats. We used night crawlers but they get picked clean of the hook most of the time from the little guys out there. Who knows, maybe try cut up sucker/chub. Im thinking about bringing a can of corn next time cuz Im sick of those nibblin lil'uns.

It's funny, because I've had the best luck at the launch. There is a nice scour hole (25 ft) and it comes up nice near the rocky shoreline.

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat

      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
