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.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
