Recommended Posts

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.

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early.

      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      It’s still a blast to fish

      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....
