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.

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
