I caught one walleye all season, on Minnetonka.... Unfortunately it was smaller than my middle finger so I had to let him go. I've never seen a walleye that small before. We had sucker minnows with us that were nearly twice the size of the walleye. In fact, the crappie minnow the walleye bit on was almost half his size.

I have had luck on Buffalo and Pelican, but nothing to brag about for at least the past month.

Fishing has slowed on Buffalo. You can still get crappies, but you need to sort more if you want bigger fish. I have talked with about 100 guys nobody has caught a single wayeye this winter. Many ask Where did the small eyes from last year go?

Caught crappies last weekend on Buffalo as fast as I could drop a minnow in the water....this weekend, same spot, same bait, same hook, no fish! Going back out there tomorrow.

I hadn't been skunked all year. Got skunked last Friday night on Pelican (didn't get on the lake until after 8:30pm though), and also got skunked the next morning on Buffalo during the tourney. Saw plenty of fish but nothing liked my bait presentation enough to bite. Tried crappie minnow on a glow jig, and euro larva on a goofy minnow style jig. Also had tip-ups setup. Frustrating. Had a good time regardless.

I have to agree with Doom... All those small buffalo walleyes went into the buckets!

However there has been a local lake that started putting out some 14-17" eyes this week for me.

Too bad the DNR won't extend the season another week.

I think most people would agree that nice fat 14 - 17 " fish are not too small, but perfect for eating!

Nothing small about 14-17" eyes in my book! Good eaters and fight good on 4# and a meatstick!

Hope you guys didn't take it as I was being a A%^Hole.

Good Fishing to each of you.

Heres my report.

Pleasant was terrible, Cedar was terrible, and Pelican was terrible.

Did however manage a nice 36 1/4 pike on a local lake on the last day of the season. Tip-up with a dead smelt.

No- Me and him and a couple others hit a different lake on Sunday. They got a 35" pike before I got out there. We did get a few nice fish on Saturday out there. 7.3 Pike Won the contest. 28.5" Walleye was caught 15 minutes after the contest was over. That thing hit a 6" sucker minnow in 5' of water.

      Yeah I like decoys this thread used have some on here. I will try to hit a show Thank you

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
    • ANYFISH2
      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
