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.

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      I don't personally own a smmity sled but I've herd many great things about them.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.

      Very disappointing for the resorts as well as anyone else with a financial interest in the lake.  Me?  I release 99% of what I catch anyways, so the rule doesn't affect me much at all....well, I suppose it means I'll have my favorite flats all to myself for at least one more year.  I just really, really wish they'd let us troll after dark in the fall.    Why walleye fishermen aren't more amenable to catch and release, especially on a lake like Mille Lacs that's been on fire for, what, three years now, is beyond me.  Who wouldn't want to go and catch dozens of fish a day even if you have to let them go?
