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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
