THe south will produce, start in 25-27' gravel areas and work up from there. The fish then are moving up to 10-14 in the early evening to dark. Not as good as the north end but they are there.

Hate to say it but I am not sure how long those nice pictures of those dead walleyes will last on this thread. You will need to go read the rules of picture posting. Just a heads up. Not trying to be a jerk about it, just letting you know they will probably be removed. Nice fish though. Plan on fishin it this Saturday.

Ok, what's wrong with the pics? Looks like maybe a finger in the gills on the first but maybe they kept them???

By the way, nice warthog! lol

Gotta comment on that 1st pic. See that growth or whatever it is on the gill....I caught a walleye this week with the same thing in the same spot. What the heck is it?? Never seen anything like that before.

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat

      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
