Clear or Green

5 posts in this topic

I'm taking a lady from work on on the 4th in the morning. She fishing when she has time but always from shore and only pannies. She caught her first walleye on Mille Lacs last year and it was only 2 inches long. She would like to catch some more. I have caught walleye out of clear this year but there isn't a lot of action there. I've heard that clear has a lot of action but not always a lot of keepers. I would like to get her out for some nice action and maybe a couple of keepers for her table. Wouldn't mind taking her for some pike later in the morning. Any help would be great. Not looking for a hole, just an idea of where to head.

If you want action go to green.But with the 17"+ slot limit you probaply wont get any keepers, but there are definetly alot of walters in green.

Green would be much better for the northern action in the morning....

What's good to use on Green? Leeches and slip bobber or snell?

I prefer fishing snells, but either has produced for me in the past.Keep it simple, don't try all theese fancy spinners and crap. Single hook, single bead on snells.Or just plain hook if slippin'. My favorite tactic is to troll the weedlines, the top of the weedlines with a shallow runner (3-5'), sunfish pattern shad rap. Good luck my friend..

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
