Cats to Walleyes Transition

4 posts in this topic

Is there a fishing technique for fall fishing where you might have an equal chance of getting a walleye or channel cat? I was thinking about a slow fished plastic jig tipped with a shad head, or something similar. Have any of you found a system where you are targeting walleyes, but still catch a few cats?

Berkley Gulp! The curly tail grub or I think they make a minnow bait now, on a jig.

It's worked on da sippi, so I can't see why that won't work on the MN.

Another great technique I use for river fishing for Eyes is, I set up a lindy rig with or with out a smile blade and few beeds. A 2 foot snell for that lindy and a foam walker. Weight depends on the curent your in, look for them curent breaks by feeder creeks. Cats and Eyes will hold in that area and your chances are pretty good in the fall and spring.

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).
