CutFoot Walleye Stripping

9 posts in this topic

I know it may be a bit early, but I was wondering if anyone in the area could post back when the nets are in and the fisheries folks are gathering eggs. My kids were quite young the last time we went up and took a look, and I think they would get a good kick out of seeing that operation, and possibly a hawg walleye or 2 (or 3, or 4, etc.) in the nets. Those of you that have been there at the right time as a youngster, and probably still, know what an experience that can be. Please post if you have any info/comments in the up-coming weeks. Thanks

The lights on the docks were on last night when we came by, so I'm assuming they still have fish in the nets. We thought about stopping, but drinks at the GDP sounded better! grin.gif

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
