Long Tonight

3 posts in this topic

Guided on Long tonight for a father and his two boys (8 and 11). Both boys caught their first walleyes as well as a pile of nice bass. We caught all are fish tonight on crawlers in 15 to 17 feet of water. I worked wind swept inside turns all evening, the bite was pretty good and i think may have got a few boys hooked on the outdoors which is a definite plus for the sport. Jonah

Well, as the father mentioned in Jonah's post, let me start by saying that Jonah is an awesome guide! Me and my two oldest boys (I left the 5 yr old back at the cabin with my wife) had a great time that night. Better yet, we were able to take the knowledge gained that night and use it the rest of the week to have even more success on Long Lake. My oldest son pulled in a 19" smallmouth later in the week.

Jonah is also right -- he helped get my boys totally hooked on fishing. They have "demanded" I trade in my 18' runabout for a fishing boat!

Thanks again Jonah!

      This weeks warm weather should have the panfish starting to push shallow. Hit a spot for a few min this afternoon.... Not the biggest fish by any means... but a start to open water it is

      And just like that, it's open water time.... Got a few small ones today... felt good to have the long rod out again

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?
