Walli1

weekend is almost here!

10 posts in this topic

Well, I'm all set to hit the river saturday morning, went and got ten gallons of premium in the boat, 3 more scoops of fatties to go along with the misc. redtails/ shinners, got 2 bobber rods loaded, 2 bottom bouncer rods loaded, 2 jig rods and a couple two riggen rods ready the go, batteries have been checked, GPS batteries are on the charger, I'm pumped up! The bridge area around Prescott is always a good choice this time of the year, as it also is in the spring, years past its been very good but its kind of loud around there, The river just has so many other less pressured spots that are peaceful, I will most likely be heading for them. Looks like it will be me and my dog out on saturday if he's up for it! grin.gif

Walli, perhaps we'll see you down there tomorrow. I was planning on staying away from Prescott as I'm sure there'll be more boats there than the rest of the river combined. I have 5 or 6 spots between Prescott and the Kinni that I plan to hit and if you're around I'll say hey. I'll be in a Tracker Tundra with a couple of Mercs on the back. I don't see too many of those down there so I should be easy to spot.

What types of depths/locations are you fishing with bobber rigs this time of year? Never have done much bobber fishing for river walleyes but always wanted to give it a try.

My partner and I fished the Vermillion yesterday. We caught about 25 wallege, 1 sauger. Biggest fish were a 22.75, 19.25 & 18.75. A few boats were in the area catching crappies in the timber. Pitched jigs with fatty's and twister tails to shore. Did lose a couple nice fish, too.

I did talk with a gentleman at the landing when we left who had fished Prescot. He said he caught two fish all day. Hope this helps.

Alright here's the scoop on bobber fishing the river at this time of year, I've found that ice jiggen spoons under a bobber work real well tipped with a fatty also vertical jigging them works well also, bringing ice jigging techquies to the river, strange but works!

USE2BWALLEYEFANATIC Hey I'm planning on fishing between Prescott and the Kinni also. 98% of the time I fish below the kinni somewhere, I only made it above the kinni 4 times this year and there isn't anything up beyond that point that I can't find below it. I've focused below the Kinni as long as I've been fishing the river so I know that 6 miles pretty good but I got alot to learn, the AQUA VA is a great tool and it will be in the boat in the morning, see you on the water! grin.gif

      Split ring pliers  .... get them at Wal-Mart in the fishing section by filet knives.  makes it super simple!!   Was using them on small spoon taking off treble hooks for single hooks so I could throw a 2" Gulp minnow on it.   Makes it very easy   Bob

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
