Good Day Of Fishin'

7 posts in this topic

Despite the goofed up weather that keeps spinning over us and creating some heavy rains, the fishing today was the best I've had thus far this year.

Jigs and leeches yet again today. I did try jigs & minnows, but that only caught the "other" species of fish. Once I switched back to leeches, I was connecting with walleyes again. Don't know why it worked out that way, but I wasn't about to beat a dead horse even deader by continuing on with minnows. tongue.gif

11 walleyes today which I and my 4yr old son helped me catch. Most were 13" - 14" which I released, and I also released a 22" and a 21", but I did keep a 15" and 2 - 18.5" fish for the fry pan.

We bugged out just in time today to drive ahead of the rain. grin.gif

As with all the lakes I've fished this year, the walleyes came on the outside weedline.

That does sound like a good day. On a local Hutch lake again? wink.gif

I made it out yesterday and got home just before they sounded the tornado sirens. Caught some fish and they seemed to prefer leeches too, but they puked up minnows in the livewell. Go figure.

Yep! You know the one. wink.gif

Same happened with the fish I had in the livewell. One puked up a small perch and the other a small sunfish. Not sure why they wouldn't take the minnows. Lookin' for variety in their diet I guess. tongue.gif

Caught a couple keeper walleyes on an area lake on leeches on saturday. 10' of water at 5 in the afternoon. A bit strange but I'll take it.

Leeches & 'eyes haven't been strange for me this year. Every single 'eye I've caught this year has come using a leech.

      I think with the current forecast there will be ice fishermen/women on URL by the 20th. It'll be bitterly cold, which is excellent, but the snow puts a hamper on things...

      all good advice, but with first ice I will avoid going out in the dark until the ice is a thicker. Ice is never safe, play it smart. looking forward to getting out soon

      I also use braid for my decoys and suckers  I think I even have a steel leader on one of them and never had problem with them spooking,  I built a wood floor for my but and use PVC poles to hand my decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and can slide them out of the way when not in use.
