Walleye stuff

4 posts in this topic

The areas where white tips are locating are now tiny areas and simple to pass up. Hard to say, but I believe many walleye are out in the soft basin chasing shad and off of structure and shoreline breaks. Good news though is eyes are still on structure and hitting, the areas are just fewer and further between. Dan Greensweig caught and released this dandy today, a personal best, on a silver spinner blade with a crawler in18 fow.

During this whole month saugers have been a staple for anglers wanting to bring fish home, and though not pool 4 sized they are respectable and easily hit the 16inch tape mark. Even in the heat it’s nice to know river eyes don’t get lock jaw and stay on the chew.

Good luck.

Keep Catchin’

Good report Turk...On my recent outing to Canada, I must say spoiled me in a big way.We fished only at night,and boated at least 70 fish 24 to 27inches with 5 or 6 28s,3 29s and 1 30 that weighed 10.8lbs.I think im gonna start workin the night shift on the river a little more now with a few new tricks in my bag.Water clarity is similar to what I was fishin up north so I think it may produce well.A very nice fish for your client buddy,see you on the river....

Are you sure you didn't catch 70 from 14 to 17 ", did you really mean to say 70 from 24" to 27"?

I've got a few jokes here that I could use, but you did say Canada right?

GOOD JOB! I'm jealous.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
