minnewaska fall walleyes

4 posts in this topic

I was wandering if there's anyone out trying for walleyes?

3 weeks ago, we found them in 6-8 ft. Are they still in there?

I was getting them as shallow as 3.5 and as deep as 13 a week and a half ago. Since then I have been out 3 times and it has been like somebody hit the light switch to the off position. There has been a lot of activity off the public beach the last week. I have talked to a number of those people and the reports were really poor as well.

Thanks for the info. Is there any word on the Starbuck end? There are some decent spots down there I know. Were you referring to the beach in Glenwood? I've heard that's a go to area.

I have not heard anything from the Starbuck side. I will be working my way down there on thursday night though. And yes I was referring to the public beach on the Glenwood side and it was a bust the last 3 times I was there. As a matter of fact on Mondaynight even the shore fisherman left. It kinda seems like monkey see monkey do. I think we have all been guilty of that though I know I have.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
