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! 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.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger

        Me! Also agree with leech a lot of those kind of seats are on sale quite often at FF.

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.
