Walleyes happening?

4 posts in this topic

Hiya,

What's the word on the walleyes up that way these days?

Was supposed to be heading to Lake St. Clair to film a TV show next week but cameraman had a conflict so that plan crapped out. Already had the time off arranged so decided to stay at the cabin for the week. Heading up for muskie opener but probably going to do the bass/walleye/muskie combo platter while I'm there. smile.gif Not looking for specific hot lakes - just sort of general sense of what the walleyes are up to. From talking to the neighbors on Crystal, seems like a lot of the lakes are a little behind where they should be this time of year.

Thanks for any info. If you see a Tracker Tundra with a walkthrough windshield bopping around the next 10 days or so flag me down and say hi - always cool meeting FM types smile.gif

Cheers,

RK

Pretty good luck in the area using spinners/leeches in 14-19ft during the day. Crankbaits in shallows at night are

going also. Hopefully you can get some water time in between the rains.

walleyegod hit it on the nose. Spinners and leeches or minnows during the day and shallow running cranks in the skinny waters during the eve/night hours.

I will keep my eye out for the Tracker...I will be down on those area lakes next Monday-Thursday. I have a Alumacraft with FM stickers on the back...pulled by a Explorer with more FM stickers on the back. Stop and say hello. grin.gif

How's it going RK? Were you parked on the road in Cormorant Village across from the gas station on Wednesday. I was over at one of the real estate agencies, saw a nice big tundra with a Merc Verado on it, wondered who it might be. Fishing is a little behind, crappies are just starting to spawn on larger lake, walleyes can still be found shallower, and the bass are shallow as well. I've been doing well below some spillways here in the DL area, popped a 26" walter last night and a 24" a couple nights ago. If you want to hook up for a couple hours Saturday morning for Muskie opener, shoot me an email. I live on South Shore about 200 yards from the access. Have a wedding Saturday afternoon, so only a couple hours Sat. morning for me.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
