River Walleye guys

12 posts in this topic

What do most of you use for presentation when fishing the river for walleyes? Are you trolling with Cranks? Lindy rigs? never really boat fished the river for walleyes before. Caught many from shore with twisters and odd throw jigs, but mainly curious to hear how you do it from boat.

My first choice are 3" white or yellow Mister Twisters set on a 1/8 oz jig ...from a boat or off shore. Live fatheads on a heavier jig head are a good choice also.

Soon!

Also got to get down and do the fall trout sneak n cast too grin.gif

1/8 - 3/8 oz jig head with a fathead minnow and vertical jigging. They seem to like gold and green colored jigs the best.

Someone brought this to my attention recently, and I thought I would ask you people. Have you caught pike in the river lately, I used to catch them all the time years ago, I havent caught one in the last 5 years. Maybe I am not fishing them right, I havent targeted them on purpose. What have you guys noticed?

They are there and biting...primarily in slack water areas...we caught a 33" early august. A couple other smaller ones too. Havent been targeting them much lately. Seem to have the best luck with spinning lures.

Earlier in the year my buddy caught a 7 1/2 pounder (didnt get the length, it was the heat of summer and wanted to return the fish). He caught it near chaska on a pixie sp?.

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret
