This isn't no walleye

14 posts in this topic

Took my good friend Scott from work out yesterday to chase some walters ,fished a few creeks and such and finally found some clear water, but not a single one to be found except this:

Scott37lbs.jpg

37 pounds of "anything that comes near me is supper"

Took Scott a good 15 minutes to land this piggy.I even got a little nervous when I missed with the net, twice tongue.gif

Even LFC can net better than me today was one thought grin.gif

This was Scott's personel best and he was all giddy and wound up for the rest of the day. A few high fives and a couple of bumps later we headed for home to this nice sunset and a few more beers. sunset.jpg

Wow, nice job Brian. I bet that was fun!

I am amazed when I drive over the river in Chaska as to how high the water is!

Fireball jig and minnow on 15 pound spiderwire made for an interesting fight. Scott did a great job of keeping the fish out of the main channel. He asked me what would we do if it would have got out into the channel and my reply was, we got 40 miles of river and a good trolling moter to fight this thing.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
