Hot Lure, Size, Color?

9 posts in this topic

Heading up to Walleye Retreat with the wife and another couple this weekend. I am wondering if anyone will divulge what their hot lures, sizes, and colors have been lately? Thanks!

Golds, Glow white, Glow red, glow pink, and pink and white are some really good colers up there. Try the buckshot rattle in spoons 1/4 oz ,chubby darters #3 or #4 ,rattlin varmints 1/4 oz and forage minnows 1/4 oz for your jigging rod, then on your deadstick put on anything with them colors you want. Good luck hope this helps. A bare hook with some color can work good to at times.

Yip...Ray summed it up...What he mentioned, is exactly what I make sure I bring up to LOW. However, if you talked or looked at my fathers rigs, nothing but a plain hook. And this year, he has out fished me with his plain hooks!

we had the best luck with green, pink and orange all white glow in the dark. most bites came from shiners. any thing up high on the graph go after, i caught a 26inch walleye 16ft down in 34 ft water, buddy also caught a 40 inch ski about the same depth. and a 42inch ski on the bottom in 2 days two fish both pushed 20lbs nice fish and a good time.

Hey Buck slayer where did you guys go out of and as far as limits go how did you do? I have been up a couple times and caught the biggest walleyes suspended ten to twelve feet off bottom just like you mentioned. Wonder why there doing that? Well I be going back in one week from today hopefully catch the hogs.

The bigger walleyes are probably chasing tullibees at them depths. I have caught some pretty nice eyes ten feet down in 30 feet of water.

we were in the mud in 30 fow, 2-6 inches off bottom. Small gold or white jigs worked, or a split shot with a #4 gamagatsu(?sp) octopus hook both red and orange, all tipped with a full fathead, and use an ice buster bobber to balance it perfectly.

      I never got around to scouting it, wish I would have. I spent a lot of time in Dunes and other small WMA scattered in the 601 zone to take advantage of the unlimited antlerless harvest. I know there is some good duck hunting to be had in Sherburne too if I can get away from the idiots. That seems to be a difficult task when waterfowl hunting within a 20 mile radius of the metro.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics

      Any new info on locations and bait preferences? Depths? Reefs? Minnows, worms or leeches? Heading up Saturday. Thanks
