5/8 Report

7 posts in this topic

Was out Tuesday from 9am-7pm,what a day. Caught a lot of really nice saugers, some decent eye's,and some big white's. Most of the sauger's and eye's were in the Prescott area in front of docked boats. Biting till noon and again real well till it was time to leave. Whites in the bottle neck area out in front of the Kinni. All fish caught on 1/4 oz. jigs, glow, and fatheads. Don't forget stinger hooks. Many fish nailed w/the stingers. The bigger whites seemed to want the bait dragged versus popping. The saugers were rather aggresive biters. What a day. Good luck to all and see you on the water.

Good work....Got out around 3, fished till 8..caught about 12 or so, most around 16" with a couple stubbies and one or two over 20"....leeches were the ticket pulled along a sand break from 16'-24' of water.

I was out yesterday boated 1 short eye & 5 nice sauger. Many light biters were missed, when using a stinger with a minnow, do you just leave the stiner hanging? How about with a leech?

Good fishing!

I do leave the stinger hanging. I was using a 1/4 fireball jig. Find bottom, snap up about a foot, let drop. As usual, many hits were on the fall so watch your line. The saugers that we were catching were hammering the minnow. And the whities wanted the jig/minnow dragged or kifted very little. Hpoe this helps! Mike

Hey Rivernut,

Were you north or south of the bridge?

Thanks

TJ, we were catching most of the saugers/walleyes just north of the Prescott launch. Drifting in front of all the docked boats. The whities were thick in main channel straight out from the Kinni. Hope this helps.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
