rigs for eyes on Carlos

3 posts in this topic

I will be up on Carlos mid July… Now I know some spots that folks recommend for walleyes but what I am wondering is what are some good setup’s to catch some of them boys… I did not have a whole lot of luck last year, but it sounds like the fishing was a bit slow when I was up there… I am not looking to fish too hard but I would like to let my daughter have a chance to catch some walleyes for a fish fry… We had a pretty good sunny and crappie fry last year… Thanks in advance…

One of the best ways for Carlos is to drag a leech with a lingy-rig. You can cover some water until you find some active fish. If you know some "spots" as you say, you can also vertical jig with a fat-head or shiner. Sometimes you may have to fish deep too. Carlos is the deepest of the area lakes, and some anglers have had success jigging in 40-50 feet. (I've never been one for deep jigging...).. The 'eyes will suspend sometimes as well. So trolling rapalas over deep water can be a useful pattern to try as well.

Keep checking the board here...as summer moves along you'll get some more ideas....we'll keep you posted.

Yep, Ghoiterman's got it. A Lindy Rig with a leech works on Carlos. Especially that time of year. You may need to slow your presentation down to a crawl and get out into the 20+ foot range, too.

Ghoiterman, I know someone who caught a wallhanger of a walleye on Carlos during mid-summer, where the fish was suspended 60 feet down in 120 feet of water. shocked.gif Sounds like lake trout, huh?

      After superbowl sounds good to me that will give it time for this slush and slop to freeze as well
