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 am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
