great week for walleyes

4 posts in this topic

My family went to BOTL last week and had a great time. I've never had many problems finding alot of walleyes, but this year they were nice. We ended up with 79 for the week, with only 6 or 7 small ones. We found them mostly from 18 to 32 FOW, using spinners and leeches. My 11 year old ended up with 19, two of them over 21", on his first official trip. Talk about being stoked..

we are headed to BOTL tomorrow for the weekend. What areas of the lake were the most productive for the walleyes. I am not looking for specific but just something in general

We fished mostly on the main lake. I'm heading back up Friday afternoon with some buddies for the weekend. Will be in A frame #3 (hopefully not very often).. But do plan on some serious beer drinking at the lodge at night. Stop by for a beer or a soda and we can chat.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
