8 posts in this topic

This will be mt 3rd year fishing out of Riches Bay. In the

past I could not find the walleyes. What depths have you

found the walleyes at? I will be using jig n minnow, lindy

rigs. Any starting points on the West End would be greatly

appreciated by this rookie, Thanks.

Go deep young man, go deep.

All my fish are coming in 34 ft or greater. Jig bite is good. Bobbers in the evening ---- shallow---- we are getting them off the end of the dock.

From Ritchies bay, you are not far from good fishing.

I will be on the "west" side this weekend. Maybe we'll see you out there. We will have two crestliners one blue and one green fishing together most of the weekend.

Hey Ron,

You know I will put you on them. Same spot last night had guests fill their three man limit there. Another cabin did real well on another spot getting a 26"er as well. The spot by the "dead tree" is starting to go also. Had guys get a few there this morning. Looks to be a good week. See you on Saturday. Be careful driving.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
