Turk

Opener

2 posts in this topic

Fished a lot of spots yesterday, saw no fish being caught for the most part, and I came to the conclusion it was going to be a tougher opener, and it was. On my guide trip we did manage nine legals and a 25" walleye was the biggest (released of course). No real secret worked crawlers all day for the catches, and stayed in the teens for depth.

The bite will be interesting this spring...

Keep catchin'

Got down to the river around 5am jumped around looking for the bite, managed to put some eyes in the boat at least, noticed that some of the eyes had redness around their tail area must of just finished spawning or something else is going on there! Graphed a nice group of eyes laying on the flat in 17 feet circled around, shut the big motor down dropped the electic and came over them, bang one, couple of minutes later bang another, then I had some gentlemen anchor over by my marker and it was over, couldn't find them any where, can't believe they spooked so easy, so I moved on guess it just wasn't ment to be, did alittle bottom bouncing managed a couple sheep, caught all but one on crawlers riggen, tip of the hat Turk, loved the rod. cool.gifcool.gif See you on the water!! cool.gif

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
