shallow eyes

5 posts in this topic

I was fishing this morning, fished crankbaits, zero fish. Whiched to spinners pick-up a couple small walleyes. Saw thing feeding up in the shallows inside the weeds. Thought it maybe bass feeding, using jig-n-minnow cast up shallow, started catching small walleyes 8-10 inches. The was only 3-4 ft. I caught about 10-15 little peanuts some right under the boat. Then i caught a couple 16-18 inchers what surprize. Walleyes that size under boat, the is very cloudy, 1 came in 3ft of water. When launching boat on northwest ramp which out locator claimed only 1ft deep. Chowed the prop

Hey Jimmy, must be nice to fish all the time, are you getting any good at it grin.gifgrin.gif The word is the big crappies or bitting on green lake, least thats what the brothers say. Have you been out on sugar lately, there's nice eyes in there to be caught. Havn't had time to get over there in a couple months, try to get there a couple times after labor day, the walleye fishing is really good late fall wink.gif

Dan, I have been fishing green each weekend for a few hours. Have not tried for crappies, I have been fishing smallies, and catching a few walleyes at the same time. Sunday was windy, made boat control a little tough. I have been fishing jig/minnow for most of my fish. I'm going to some of my fall lakes this week to check water temps. The good bite is just beginning. When is the family trip? We should go hit the river this fall.

Hey Jimmy, My family trip is the 20th, I guess the fish are bitting but hey up there the fish always seem to be on the bite at least we've done really good over the years.

a big YES on hitting the river this fall, I'm out on the croix every weekend, fishings been up and down but there's been more ups then downs. You really should try to make it out on sugar there nice ones.

I have seen a few nice eyes come out of sugar but that was a few years ago when the water temp is starting to fall just after dark in the shallow points. I was out there once this year and it sucked. To many topwater weeds just flowting around. Line kept getting fowlled up. Been over to clear water and they seem to be staying deep so far. May go back that way this weekend but where suppose to have storms this weekend I guess. Good luck to all.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
