What the heck is going on?

8 posts in this topic

I can't catch a walleye for nothing. I know it is dog days and blah, blah , blah, but you got to get lucky eventually. I have been down deep, shallow, live, artifical and I can count on two hands the walleyes confused.gifI have caught for the last 4 months. I did not think I was that bad at fishing but I guess the proof is staring me right in the face. Anyone else having diffulculty?

I have had no problem catching walleyes lately, small- medium leeches or cranks long linning have been working. I did see a couple of big eyes up in 6 feet of water while fishing for muskies too so that may give you a hint.

We have had pretty good success with half a crawler on a lindy with a red #4 hook....14 to 18 feet...

4 ft leader...

I just read my post and found I can't even type right. I meant 4 weeks not 4 months, not that it makes it any better. crazy.gif

it isn't just you if you are on the west end. And judging by the lack of boats on a beautiful calm evening it isn't just me either. Wakemup was a ghost town tonite. Merrygo round, stove top, center island, like 3 boats total.

But it was a nice nite for a boat ride.

There is a good walleye bite going on the reefs on the East end.

Lindys with leeches or crawlers.

Cliff,

Tell me that the bite just started and hasn't been going on for a while. It's an ego thing. Hopefully my folks who are staying at my cabin are into them.

      I took my kids for a monticello outing yesterday, but my boy spiked a fever on the way so I had to abort mission.  Tried a little shorefishing at home this afternoon in Brooklyn Park. I tried spoons, jerkbaits and ringworms. No action.

      Heading to Grand rapids on Wed. Any chance a guy can drive back in the woods with a car??

      Palmer lake is good for sunfish (and it's kind of a pond), but it's been getting hammered this winter. I'm worried about the pressure it's been getting. I wouldn't mention it here, but word is clearly out already. There are a lot of great options to try around Eagan. That's where I do most of my pond fishing.  I live in Brooklyn Park now and have had a tough time finding good fishing in ponds/little lakes up this way. Might have to give the clay hole a try
