Independence Walleyes

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone had any look fishing walleyes on Independence yet.Haven't been out there this year but have caught some nice ones out there in the past.Just wondering if it is worth the trip to head out there and catch a few and release them.

Haven't been out there this year yet or heard much but have had luck out there in the past trolling shad raps just south of the island in the evening. I would think that the point on the east and west about halfway up from the landing would be good spots to try. I'll be out there in the AM checking it out. Anyone have any luck out there yet? It's nice to get out there before you have to worry about getting hit in the head with a bulldog, bucktail or run over by a ski boat or jet ski. grin.gif

Unfortunately plans got scrapped because my girlfriend woke up sick this AM. Hopefully can get out soon. I'm guessing this morning was a good bite with all the clouds and that nice SSW wind

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
