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.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.
    • monstermoose78
      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
