Fished all day, no real fish :(

4 posts in this topic

A friend and I fished all day Saturday on pool 2, south 494 and couldn't catch any walleyes. We tried wingdams, backwaters, dropoffs, etc and all we could bring in were sheepheads... lots of sheepheads. I did have one fish hit a crankbait, but lost him at the boat..

Any advice? I tried worms, plastics, crankbaits, lindy rigs, etc.. no luck.. unless you call a 10 lb cat luck..

Troll shad raps in the rip rap near the railroad tracks in 6-8' of water.

Keep plugging away. I had great luck Saturday casting crankbaits to wingdams and other rocky structure. The fish are active, so don't sit on any one spot to long. Cover an area, then move on.

A week ago yesterday (5/14) I got basically skunked. Yesterday, I had 5 eyes off the top of 3 different wingdams before the sun rose, then nothing. It was a bit frustrating to not be able to adjust, because the fish were diffinately on the chew. I was using a larger sized jointed shad rap, perhaps I should have reduced in size after the light conditions increased. It's always a puzzle! grin.gif

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?
