Comming Up on Wednesday, Dec 26

3 posts in this topic

Since the ice conditions are pretty bad here in the Walker area, I talked to wife into a little Christmas Trip.

Decided to leave the fish house at home and rent one from Chad Benson. Seems to have pretty good houses and a pretty good price and I have heard nothing but good things from people passing through the store on their way home. Only can stay one night, have to be back to work on Friday.

I got a kick out of his fishing report when I read that people were having to pull the rattle reels up at 1-2am so they can get some sleep. grin.gif A sales pitch or not, thats what I wanted to here.

Hoping for some consistant walleye action with a 40"er mixed in. Not expecting any crappies but thats ok. Everything is going back down the hole anyway.

Got the Glow Red and Glow Yellow Demons and Rattle Spoons ready to go!!!! It should be a fun little trip.

I will have a full report when I get back late Thurs. We will be on the South end going out of JR's. Doesn't sound like we will be going out that far, maybe a mile or 2, 10-12 FOW, I told Chad that I was more interested in a good Walleye bite. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

We too are heading up on Wednesday and are coming back late Friday. I would love to find the crappies, but I really wouldn't care if we don't. As long as the walleyes keep us busy it is always worth the 250 mile drive!

There's a good chance my son and I will be there Wednesday also for a day trip. He's only 4.5 years old but I think he's ready for a good walleye bite grin.gif I'll be coming up from my folk's place in Grand Rapids so it's not too bad of a drive for a 1-day trip.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?

      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.
