Fishing Report 7-13-07

Good Morning FM visitors!

Fish are still full of mayflies as the fish I cleaned yesterday were pretty round. My group ended up with 15 walleyes between 8-4p.m. We took about an 1 1/2 hour shorelunch in the middle of the day. Not fantastic, but... Most fish were nice eating fish up to 16 inches. Fish were not very aggressive, but look for the fish to start becoming more willing takers. We did have a couple different eyes come to the boat with mayflies still in there mouth. Funny thing was we were having the best luck with fatheads! Go figure! I guess thats why you always have a selection in the boat. Will be out today with a different group, and will post our day for any visitors coming up! Good Fishing Guys! My advice would be to go light for a bit until these fish juice up soon! Use your electronics!

Thanks Mike for the opportunity to take out your group today! Great trip! Nice to see the winds calm for a couple hours. We boated 30 eyes today from 8-4p.m. excluding our shorelunch break. Lots of nice 15-16.5's. Have a great remainder of your trip. Take Care!

Wow what a beautiful day! Almost don't know what to do with yourself without the blasting wind. Congrats to Oliver, Sophia and Jack on catching there first walleyes today. Had a great morning of walleye fishing! Thanks for the opportunity. After all was said and done we boated close to 65 walleyes today. Had the chance actually to take out the Fishing Queen before dark. Try Deep 35-40 feet of water on these nicer days with little wind. Search very carefully for subtle changes in the bottom contour as it can and will make the difference in a mediocre to great day. Good Fishing Guys and Gals!

Good to hear from you FM. Let's get out one of these days. I've got a couple things I'd like to talk to you about. Maybe while catching a few eyes?

Hey RD

If you have a free day next week the elder 2 brothers will be here and you could see the whole scary clan at once! Hopefully they'll be bringing some goodies from the Berkley outlet store too.

      Water level is a little higher than normal, but not outrageous.

      I'm not sure if it's a Minnkota or other after market brand. Cabela's service center installed it and provided the quick release mount. When I took it back to them and showed the problem, they did not question the failure. Look at the lock on yours and see if when you push the locking lever over if the part of the lock is plastic or some other type non metallic material. The stub on the bottom of the motor itself is metal and connects to the plastic in the base. That's where the issue of failure lies.. If your is plastic too, then I'd question the safety and complain to who ever sold you that mount and get one that is much stronger and will not crumble like mine did.. Good luck.. I'll post the results after I find out what Cabela's comes up with... Kaz

      Mayflies were just getting started on the west end of the lake last weekend.

      Thanks! I'm glad to be here and so far absolutely love this state. The cold didn't bother me one bit and I learned that ice fishing is fun.    People look down on spinnerbaits? Never heard that but it wouldn't bother me if they did. I'll fish my way and they can fish their way.   Roland is absolutely right. I've noticed that there seem to be an abundance of bass in that 2-5 pound class, at least where I fish. I hardly ever find a skinny bass, they're all footballs.   Really I enjoy the pike though. They are great fighters and great tasting. Of course we don't have those down south and I've really grown to appreciate them.

      There is a tank of leeches over by their water tank. They're stopping by later so they can go fishing. Gotta love our language. HA!

      I always use only 1/2 crawler mainly because it is all that is needed to get walleyes to bite. It also more closely resembles the molting rusty crayfish and Mayfly nymphs that the walleyes are eating. The 1/2 crawler also works well when the walleyes are feeding on young-of-the-year perch. It works much better then using a crappie minnow on my rigs for some reason. I have tried both on different lines at the same time and the crawler will out fish the crappie minnow every time! Does not make sense when they are eating minnows, but that is the way it is. I always had problems with the walleyes stealing my bait when I used a whole crawler too. If I fed a whole crawler to the fish long enough for them to eat it, I almost always gut hooked the fish. One of my clients boated a 27-1/2 inch walleye today using 1/2 crawler, a red hook, and a green glow bead. Cliff

      I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish.   Thanks in advance!
