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.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
