Another Yellow Bird Question

3 posts in this topic

The directions on the board tell you to put a "large bead" on the line 3 feet above the lure to keep the board away from the lure when fighting a fish. that snap is pretty big....what do you all use to keep the board off the lure?

A rubber core sinker works good - this was called out in the directions for my 10 year old yellow birds. For musky size lures you might need to up size to the "big birds" If you do get the big size birds the black pincher type releases that come with them will probably drive you nuts, by popping off the line. I would recomend adding the orange osprey releases.

Most guys run Offshore and Church boards, and don't want the board to pop off the line or slide down to the fish. Run your bait back however far you want it, clip the line to the board, run the board out there until you get a fish, reel in the board and unclip it, then reel in the fish. I'm not very familiar with YB boards but maybe you can rig them this way????

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
