Fall Walleyes!

20 posts in this topic

Well....perhaps the fall bite has started. I'm guessing the past cold snap must have given it a boost.

Papa Grump and I hit the river this evening to give it a go. We found a spot that had a little faster current and we were pitching black jigs/fathead at the seams.

Right away Papa hooked into a hog that tossed the hook at the boat. Then it was my turn. I hooked into two healthy PLUMP eyes.

First was 22" and the second was 6.5lbs (forgot length).

I couldn't believe how fat these fish were!

Hopefully a sign of good things to come cool.gif

I was out by myself last night and picked up a couple small ones. Both around 13 or 14 inches. A few of you know where I went and I'll leave it at that. Just using plastics only. I should bring a few fatheads next time out.

It's TIME.......

I seriously thought about it, but the spot we were at.....near Henderson (I won't get any more specific than that) was brutal to get to, so even if anyone recognizes it, unless they have a jet, or we get a ton of rain....they aren't getting there.

We did pretty well on Sun. Caught about a dozen 19-20"ers.

I just wish I had more time after work. Not only that, but pretty soon it will be dark by the time I get home frown.gif

Had a hunch about a new spot and it paid off. A creek inlet, a sand drop off, rip rap shoreline, and a great looking current edge leading into deeper water with minnows = 5 real nice Saugers, two nice Walters, a couple shakers and a few missed fish all between 4:15 and 5:30 or so. They stopped biting by 6 o'clock but really liked the White or yellow 4" plastic grubs up until then.

Gotta Luv It grin.gif

Ya think? grin.gif

I was down there this weekend and the guys that were fishing off shore weren't catching anything at all. Caught a few fishing out of the boat, but overall fairly slow.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.
