Walleyedan's Report

6 posts in this topic

It was a good week of weather and fishing. We fished Gull and North Long and both were good, it sure is nice to be able to fish outside again. It sounds like the weather will be changing and that is good for ice making. The walleyes that we caught on Gull were in 29-31 feet, we also caught some big perch (for Gull Lake). North Long was fun because of the mixed bagged, we didn't know what was going to come up through the hole. I had the Pillager High School Outdoor Adventures class out on Wednesday afternoon and we had a great time. We caught some northerns and walleyes and one of the students (Rachel) caught a 26 inch walleye on a tip-up. The fish over there were caught in 12-15 feet. Yesterday was another mixed bag day where we had some walleyes, northerns, a bass, crappies and perch. We are starting to plan for the Extravaganza and will run some type of specials at our new shop in Nisswa (just west of Holiday gas station and across from the water slide). Make sure to stop by when you are up in our neck of the woods.

Have a nice weekend,

Walleyedan

Thanks Dan, I have been finding some nice (for Gull) perch as well on top of some mid lake humps, with some walleyes moving in to those areas around the golden hour.

Saw your pic in this months WalleyeInsider, were you a part of that study as well?

Take care.

Crumpler,

I haven't seen the magazine yet, not sure what study it was.

I'll have to pick it up tomorrow.

It was a study that showed how much better walleye anglers on central Minnesota waters fared when fishing with a guide. Real interesting numbers from Gull, North Long, Pelican, Round, and Edward. The reference is cited in the article.

I like to fish with a guide or two each summer to learn a few new things and simply relax a little more than my normal day trip on the water. I "guide" my three kids on nearly every trip to the lake - great time, but not sure relaxing is the right word there.

Anyway, IMHO, Guides out-produce for four big reasons.

1) Identifying the best spot on the spots

(location within location).

2) Being on the lakes everyday is a big plus - patterns!

2) Top Shelf Electronics

3) Boat Control!!!!!!!

guide or average Joe, if you can keep your boat over

the fish you will catch more fish

Dan, you couldn't have been part of the survey for Walleye Insider even though your picture was in the magazine. According to the survey, it said all the guides surveyed out fished their clients. Whenever Jeff and I are with you, you always allow us to catch the most fish. If we start catching too many you won't put anymore minnows on our line and won't net our fish anymore.

Good Luck next weekend and hopefully you win some Arctic Armour - I really like mine,

Glenn

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
