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'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
