wishing for walleyes

Seems as though the walleyes are getting hungry.I caught 4 walleyes on friday with 2 of them 28 inches and 2 of them 17 inches.Also caught a 20+ carp.Deep running shad rap in 8-12 FOW.The shad had to be bouncing off the bottom with the speed at 3.3 mph.Here`s a picture of 1 of the 28 inchers.Only the 17 inchers were kept so the 28`s are out there to be caught again.

Are you fishing the Fairmont area lakes? I am from Worthington and have never fished over in that area. What lake would be a good starting point? I've heard Fox is a good lake. Nice fish.

Fox is a great lake to fish.I fish it alot.Was told this morning that someone caught 3 muskies while trolling for eyes on fox.Fox has lots of cats and lots of eyes.Big Twin north of fox lake is another very good lake.Be carefull on big twin on the north side of the island.There are rocks in shallow water on the north side and are not marked.

I THOUGHT THERE WAS AN ISSUE ABOUT SHOWING NON RELEASE PICTURES !

In "wishing's" original post he indicated that each fish, with the exception of the 17" fish, were released. With that being said, I have left the photos go. Forum policy does indicate photos should be in good taste, so then it becomes a matter of interpretation. I think a lesson that can be learned from this, though, is that if you're by yourself or some other cirumstance does not allow for a quality photo, forget the photo and get the fish back in the water.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
