Got Walleyes?

5 posts in this topic

Saturday night (10/21), Minnetonka, 48 degree water temps, 27 degree air temps when we came off the water, long line trolling resulted in 4 walleyes for three anglers.

Hillbiehle(FM'er) holding the first fish of the night, 23", he later landed a 20" also.

Yours truly holding a 24"

The story of the night though belonged to the kid, Mark (14). Now this young man caught his first walleye of his life Saturday night. I'm not sure if we still can wipe the smile off of his face. I don't think we have stopped smiling either. Let's just say Chris (Hillbiehle) and I were a little excited for him also. 28.5" of girthy walleye.

All swimming to be caught another fall night when they are approaching that magical 30" mark.

Nice fish and thanks for photos. What was the lure of choice and speed you were trolling at?

Nice fish guys! I am sure it is a night Mark won't forget about.

Nice fish! I was out early Saturday evening for a couple hours trolling raps with no luck. I wasn't able to stay out after dark though. Was a certain time of the night best or were they spread out? Any other tips would be appreciated but don't tell me your hot spot.

So Mark's first walleye ever was a 28.5"?! What a way to get him hooked on walleye fishing!!

tashit,

The action happened after dark for us. We fished for a very short time prior to sunset because we were getting the boat situated or arranged, defining our trolling run, determing trolling speeds and so on. We did get a few runs in prior to dark, but no action to show for it.

Lures included rogues, husky jerks and original floating raps.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
