Weekend Reports

4 posts in this topic

Went up to the Grand Vue flats area on Sunday to get away from all of the yahoos and had an enjoyable day... We fished in about 20 FOW and ended up with 8 jumbos and threw back a bunch of smaller ones... Kind of laughed as I watched everyone drive by and head for Goose Island.. The pack mentality... must be fish over there.. that's where everyones at...

Also...typical... my wife goes out occasionally and as usual she catches the biggest fish of the season.. She ended up catching a 26" (~7 lb.) walleye about 1 hr prior to dark... Nice looking fish... not what I expected to see pop up out of the hole.. Took a few nice pictures and let here go...

Any other fish tales from the weekend?

We were fishing on the south side of Big Hardwood, in 15FOW, and had good northern and perch action in the afternoons, no W's though. The weather was perfect, absolutely perfect.

Curiosity got the best of me, so I ventured over to the crowd via sled to Goose Island to see what was happening and got ONE there... pretty slow. Found another area a about a mile away from the crowd and got 26 jumbos (two guys) and 3 walleyes (saw about 10 eye's on the camera though) fished till noon and went to another "area" to find some crappies. Not a bad morning though!

I usually avoid the crowds to begin with, but just have to confirm my thinking every once in awhile \:\)

The pull of the curiosity was strong... I started a couple miles away from the crowd and ended up about 1/2 mile away... I told myself to hold out... now I have the confirmation that I didn't need to be in the crowd...lol... which we all know...

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
