April 14th, Walleye Warm Up

5 posts in this topic

As many of you know ther walleye season is open year round on Pool 4 of the Mississippi River. We thought it might be good idea to round up the FMer's for a day baoting walleyes when most others around the state are only dreaming of catching them.

When: April 14 at 7:30 a.m.

Where: Baypoint Park in Redwing

Joel, Mark and I will be there to help people out point them in the right direction before everyone heads out.

In past years there has been a steady bite just below the dam jigging minnows and various plastics. It is actually pretty easy fishing!

The only down side is there will be many boats out so we will need to be carefull.

Hopefully we can get a good turnout and do it again next year.

Hope to see many of you there!

Humm. This is awfully tempting. Trout opener vs. Walleye Warm Up. I’m going to have to give this one some though. I want to continue to learn more about trout fishing, but I’m a walleye guy at heart. I'll be in touch.

You will bsically want a seelction of jigs from 1/8 to 3/8 oz. Color is not that important but chartruse and orange are my favorites. Depending on current it cold take a bit heavier jig though.

Minnows will most likely be the ticket as are some plastics such as Power Minnows and ringworms.

Bucktail jigs are in the picture this time of year.

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Yeah I thought if that. Just looking for other opinions.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
