Thanks TURK!!!

4 posts in this topic

My Father and I went out for a guide trip with Turk yesterday. The weather was glorious, the company even better, but the walleyes and sauger were definitely in a negative mood.

HOWEVER, Turk (again) put together a game plan that worked. "Dominate the line of scrimmage," he said. Uh, no that ain't it.... well, possibly? Maybe it's more like "force your will and you will prevail!”

There are tons of cliches that I could use to describe some of the techniques employed yesterday: "patience is a virtue", "don't leave fish to find fish", and "ya gotta put it in there face”. But I believe nothing describes it (and Turk) better than good ‘ol fashion river walleye knowhow!

I am continually amazed at how he can put the “greenbacks” in the boat. Or maybe I should say “put us on the greenbacks,” cuz we certainly do know who can catch ‘em better! wink.gif

Thanks again Turk!

Birdy over-n-out

Hey my job is to put guys on fish and not catch them! Well that's my excuse at least when I'm out fished by guys in my boat.

Thanks for the kind words, somedays it works out!

I fished Wednesday and Thursday evenings by the Prescott bridge. Wednesday caught two 17" and three under 15" Walleyes plus a few other miscellaneous fish. Thursday caught one, 14 3/4", one 17" Walleye, and one small sauger. Wednesday they were all on the bottom in 25' and Thursday they were suspending between 10 and 15' in 23' of water. I fished 1.5 to 2 hours before sunset both days handling #5 firetiger Rapalas. I saw a few other Walleyes caught by others that were jigging minnows.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
