Long This Morning

8 posts in this topic

It was a great morning on long, figured out a way to catch those big walleyes i always see suspended over deep water. i borrowed a trick the PWTers use when faced with walleyes in deep water near schools of bait. i spooled up a trolling rod with lead core line and put about 20 feet floro on the end with a spinner rig and crawler/redtail combo on them. it was a solo mission this morning so i didnt get any picts but i did end up with 2 26", 1 28", and one 30 1/2" using this technique. it was a blast to try somthing new and have it work.

he wont fish that way, he is fishing the tourny but he tells me its not his thing and wont do it.. so i guess he is going to stick to weed lines and classic patterns. owell his loss. good luck to all who fish it. JOnah

i don't know but with a 4,000 dallar first prize i think i would switch, everybody prefishes for a tourney to find out where they are and what they are biting on otherwise its really a donate your money and say boy that was fun. i know alot of guys and they would switch knowing that you caught them 4 big eyes on your new method especially this close to the tourney, but i guess thats why they call it fishing. this is my 2 cents worth

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
