Spring walleyes on pool 4

5 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone has an tips or thoughts on how to fishing walleyes down on the river! I can fish them on lakes but rivers are a new area. Just wondering if people jig alot, pull raps or lindy rig? We are coming down in March or April sometime. Thanks for any thoughts.

You can vertical jig, you can drag jigs, you can pitch blades and jigs and you can three way cranks in the spring. All the above will produce fish. Pitching current seams and rip rap will produce bigger walleyes. Going vertical produces more fish but smaller size. I highly recommend you stop in at Evert's and talk to Dean Marshall. Dean always has the latest info and can equip you with whatever you need for a good trip. Rivers are a another ballgame from lakes. It's all about current breaks on the river. You might want to consider hiring a guide for the first day. Pool 4 has alot of good ones. I'd recommend Turk Gierke of Croixsippi Guide service. He fishes Pool 4 until the season opens on the St Croix.

The Wisconsin channel ramp is a pain in winter but doable. The ramps at Evert's are always in great shape. Add the advice/info Dean provides (and the occasional cookie!) and the $7 fee is a bargain in my opinion. Plus it shaves 5 minutes off a very cold boat ride if you are headed to the Y area.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.
