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.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
