Full moon...Walleyes snapping???

8 posts in this topic

Well, there is a full moon tonight and it is so bright outside that I should be sitting out in the boat right now slamming some Walleyes! Anybody else have the same idea and actually get out fishing? The heck with work-I am playing hookie and going out tomorrow (Friday) to set some steel to Walleye lips! grin.gif Will post the outcome tomorrow night.

Dude! Hookey? I'm telling the board members! Kidding, of course, and as hard as I know you work to preserve and protect that golf course, I doubt anyone would have a bad word to say if you played hookey for a day. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

This time of year, doubt anyone will miss you on the course. I got too many things to be shooting to worry about fishing for at least 3 more weeks.

Well, Fishing was slow! A front came in about 4:00pm and blew me right off the lake! One snakey northern was all I could muster! Well, maybe tomorrow!

Got up early this morning and was it COLD! My rod tip and line was freezing up like I was ice fishing! Fishing was slow again...one walleye and one northern...and no other bites! I think the lake turnover is having alot to do with lousey fishing right now. Lots of junk it the water and real muddy looking. Fished all depths and all kinds of structure and was marking alot of fish on the locator, but it was deadsville. Anybody have any luck this weekend?

went out to island lake tonight and caught 4 small northerns...no walleyes though. What is normally a good depth to try in late fall? I have just been fishing with big suckers on jigs out of the good old stealth 2000 paddling around wink.gif... Does anyone have any advice for spots somewhat close to the northeast public landing or other ones. Today it was a little to windy to explore to far..had waves crashing over the front of my little boat. hopefully they start biting more soon.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
