Where are the walleyes?

4 posts in this topic

confused.gif Where are all the walleyes?

Went to Reno Saturday night(5-24-03) caught one small one. Went to Big Birch Sunday(5-25-03) and Monday night(5-26-03) and only caught one. Went to Minnewaska Monday(5-26-03) morning didn't catch anything. Graphed lots of fish on some lakes and very few on others. Just couldn't get them to bite. Anybody know where the walleyes are biting.

Thanks for the info,
EYES

There were a lot of fish taken out of Reno over the weekend. Word has it that the tournament that was held on Reno last Saturday had every boat catch their limit of walleyes. I went out on Sunday and had moderate success and by Monday I didn't get a bite. There must have been 100 boats on Reno that Saturday, the lake just can't take that kind of fishing pressure.

I'm no expert but I would imagine this high pressure system we've been expeiencing with low to moderate N.E., Easterly, winds have to be a factor. I'm from southern part of the state & things have been pretty much hit & miss here. A little more cloud cover & more southerly winds (walleye chop) might help, but by the sounds of it they did great on Reno. Good Luck! f2f

I agree Reno can't take that kind of pressure. If everyone was catching fish, it will not last. But, not everyone catches fish. I have been out there and fished circles around people. Some people just don't catch on how to fish or had to many 12 ouncers.

I know who put that tournament on. Good luck to those who do not know the lake and those who do not know how to fish. There is a lot of locals in that tournament. Expecially the person putting it on. These people will literally out fish you and make you frustrated as hell. Hell, I have in been in there boats, and out fished 10 to 1. So, if you see a lot fish being caught by only a few particular boats, good chance those people fish there a lot. Keep an eye on what they are using, doing, everything. If you don't, well, good luck.

Again, thanks for the time.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      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.

      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.
