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.

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
