Report from trip 5/22-5/27

1 post in this topic

As pretty much everyone has said so far the walleyes were cooperative for us. Many boats did struggle as the winds were out of the W, SW, and NW most of the time and pretty strong. The rain kept coming down off and on also. We caught fish all day long with the Tamarac still producing a little faster than the main lake. I think that had to do with the wind factor as not many people on the lake were doing well. I fished almost exclusively plastics on the trip and did very well(Gulp, Powerbait, minnows and leeches both). THe walleye in the river were basically everywhere moving through in waves but we keyed in on the deeper holes and did well. The walleyes on the lake were still anywhere from 5-7 feet but the deeper we got the more sheepshead we got also. Crappies we caught in the river early in the morning on the sharper breaks down to about 8 feet of water. Crappies on the alke were tough but we did manage a few after 8'o'clock in the evening on the north end in shallow, 3-4 FOW below bobbers. All in all a good trip even though the weather was not so nice. Plenty of keeper walleyes boated without problem and many fish 24-25 inches also. ALready looking forward to our next trip up from KC. GOod luck boys, maybe this helps.

      you'll need your own usb cord....but if you have a recent digital camera or something that same cord will fit.  its fairly easy to do.

      I was catching a lot of 10" to 12" walleyes early in the season. I think that they moved deeper later and I did not catch to many of them after that. I did get a few of this springs hatch, (6" to 8" ) fish this fall also. Hopefully the DNR test netting this fall will reveal a good forecast! Cliff

      Went out for a couple hours Tuesday and put a few in the boat to end my season. Not a real hot bite but can't complain about two 15"ers for the pan. Thanks to everyone who shares info here. We've had the cabin for 6 years now and I'm starting to really figure things out with the help I find here. I'm nowhere near as good as I want to be but I always catch fish now, that wasn't always the case.  What a class of eater fish there is right now! Next year when they're all 16-17" will be great too, but it looks like we are going to have some lean years after that as far as eaters go. Anyone else see any signs of hope for a class after the current one? I don't remember catching anything under 14 all year
