I've been fishing 18-24 fow jiggin with a shinner. Also have been using slip bobbers with leach or shinner. shinner seems to get more leach gets bigger ones. Having an issue with a bunch of 10" walleyes so you should be in heaven.

Hit, the night I talked to you we ended up at Big C. Got there around 8:30pm and got about 15 crappies until they shut down near dark. Ended up fishing until 1:30am, and got 5 nice eyes, about 7 12"ers, and lost about 5 nice eyes on cranks or a shiner and a split shot in 6-10 fow.

We got a few walleyes trolling cranks. Lost one around 5 lbs at the boat, lots of smallies.

Shea -

Were the smallies you caught up on the breaks, or suspended?

Might hit C tomorrow and pester the smallies a little... So was just curious.

Cheers,

Cool - thanks Shae. Haven't been there in a couple weeks so was worried they'd gone 'out to sea.' Lot tougher when they suspend...

Cheers,

Pelican was a little slow. We only had a few nice bites and boated two small eyes. I guess they were there yesterday -- day late dollar short.

A buddy was on Big C and did better than we did.

      Welcome what are you training her for waterfowl upland or both? What is her name?

      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.
