It was a good day.

4 posts in this topic

Tom M, and I went out today and the fish came out to play. We must have cought 25-30 Walleyes. None over 16". 7 or 8 Northerns, all over 22" and one that was 32". A 28" Bowfin (Dogfish) which we should have wighted and a 17" White Bass. All fish came from 7-9 FOW trolling at 3+mph. The 32" northern Pike was cought while trolling at 3mph and I was reeling in fast to check my crankbait for weeds. There were no weeds on the crankbait only fish grin.gif.

My neighbor said he cought a 31" Northern today also. So I say; It was a good day.

All the Eyes were over flat gravel bottom near weed with deep water close by. I know it was gravel because my crankbait could bang bottom with out picking up weeds and moss in the areas where the eyes were. Oh yea! I almost forgot. The wind was blowing into the weeds in the areas where the Walleye's were. Oh it is so nice to have 10-15mph winds grin.gif. That 20-30mph stuff is getting tiresome frown.gif.

I tend to find Bass and Perch on the calmer side of the weeds/lake. Look to areas where the wind has been pounding shallow water, main lake point, sunken rock piles and such.

Remember, Speed and depth, Speed and depth, Speed and depth. Yes, I just watched the end of The Wizzard of OZ confused.gif.

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
