What is working?

4 posts in this topic

Coming up on Thursday to hit the east side (staying at everett bay lodge) wondering what bait the walleyes are hitting on? Any tip's on Depth would be helpful also. I will also post results when I get back.

I have been using both jigs and Lindy rigs this week.

Minnows have accounted for most of my fish. Pike suckers and chubs have been working for me, but if you can get big rainbows they are the best bait. Crawlers are also catching a few walleyes yet.

12' to 30' of water has been the best depths the past 2 weeks for me.

Mr. Manners,

I just returned from a long weekend at the casino campground. The walleye's I found were on Main Lake Big Bay flats in 16-24 feet of water. I caught many keeper fish using 3-4 colors of leadcore and small crankbaits when windy and switched to bottom bouncers and spinner-crawler combo when calmer. The bottom bouncer spinner setup caught lots of fish including a 27 incher, 24 incher several 17-19 inchers and limits of eater 15-16 3/4 inchers. Good luck. Water temps were 62-64 degrees.

Thanks,

I have heard some rumblings that daisy bay may be producing so we will see. I have about 12-14 dozen crawlers left from a flat I brought to Canada so i will try those and pick up some rainbows.

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
