Waiting for Walleye's

8 posts in this topic

Trouble and I took a few trips to one of the local lakes and sat and waited for the eye's to come to us and managed to Ice 9 eye's in four outings. Not the numbers were use to getting. We took a little time away from the non stop panfish bite we shared with everyone the day of the get together.

We tried alot of differn't presentations, but found a dead stick to produce the most and bigger fish. The lures had to almost be in the mud and sand. They wanted it close to the bottom. Glowing up your lure every 15-20min seemed to get the most action. Lots of fish coming thru that would sniff around and then bail before eating. If the weather flattens out we will return to this spot, but I think its time to start targeting the crappies over 12" with a few slabs mixed in.

Also when out in these colder temperatures we tend to close up the house tighter and tighter. Make sure that you are getting some fresh air in. I heard of a father son that died recently due to cabon monoxide poisoning (sad). I also had a guy i know get very sick and missed some work. This stuff has to work its way out of your system once it's in so be carefull. If your heater is making funny noises it could be a good sign to get a little fresh air.

One pic from the last couple days, no camera when Trouble was in em heavy. Too Bad.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
