Fisky's Right!

8 posts in this topic

Well after seeing Fisky's walrus i figured it was about time to let the shotgun and ducks rest and head out onto the river. Good choice! Sunday greeted me and a few buds with frost covered docks and that morning chill that lets you know deer season is almost here. We decided to try and head up river a little bit to get out of the pressure the windsock area was experiencing. Tried a spot that has produced in the past in about 15 ft of water. It wasnt rocket science, like everybody else we drowned our shiners with a 1 oz jig and in about 3 1/2 hours we had our limit of 15-18 inch quality walleyes. I also managed to hook into a nice 29" 10.4# that made the day. But like Fisky says...the best is yet to come!

The limit

Saved up vacation time. grin.gif

I rarely take vacation in the summer months, there are much better uses for it in the fall and winter. wink.gif

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on

      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
