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

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
