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

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
