Walleye Depth

11 posts in this topic

Was out on North Lida yesterday. I found the Walleye bite to be deeper that I expected - all the way from 17 to 21 feet.

What are you finding?

We have been finding them between 9 and 14 feet.

I wonder if the thunder boomers on Friday night sent them out a little deeper? That would be my guess.

I found a couple in 8-12 fow. I had thunder boomers to the north and to the south of where I was and I ended up pulling in a 27"er about 9:00 Friday night.

      The statistics from my journal for the 2016/2017 spearing season have been compiled. I had 21 sits, on 7 different bodies of water across 3 MN counties (Cook, Washington and Hennepin). Average sit was 4.4 hours. Number of pike seen averaged 1.08 per hour. Along with some old favorites, I added some new spots and 3 new lakes to the repertoire and they ended up being new favorites.    I saw, and passed on many pike over 30 inches. I was fortunate enough to have great views of 4 muskies, and more than a few big bass. Interestingly I only saw one walleye, one bowfin and one carp. Those numbers are down.     Here are a few of my pictures from the past season. Not the best quality, but they are from an old LG slider phone.    A trio for the pan and  the days swim team (Johnson red/white and sunfish; Dennis Bertram shiner). Dave Pawlak spear. Larger pike had been attacked by a bigger fish…she was cut up and scaled ahead of the dorsal fin.      Pike, some panfish and a Kraemer 9 tine spear.      I have a few more pictures of some fish n the hole and will try to add them later when I have time.
