Walleye Time...

3 posts in this topic

I've been hearing rumors about walleyes starting to bite. I tried last night for just a bit and caught one cute little mudeye about 14". It slammed a 4" yellow grub. The river is looking prime for sneak n cast! Walleye time cometh!

Having never fished for eyes in the fall on the river,where might one find some? I am not looking for your honey hole just the type of structure you are fishing and type of bait used.

Thank-You

I've done pretty well on the river shore fishing walleyes in past years in the fall and spring. Don't be affraid to fish in shallow or near strong current. Wingdams, rocks, etc are good places to start. Structure related to deeper water. I try to find a rocky shoreline near a turn in the river, or else on the edges of eddies and current edges. I have had my best luck tossing live minnows on small white jigs, usually just keeping the line tight and slowly crawling the jig back to me as the current pushes it along. This can also be tricky as if there are snags in the area you can go through lead really quick. Also effective are rapalas cast near faster current or deep water dropoffs.

      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.
