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?.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
