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.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
