Walleyes Jumping

4 posts in this topic

While taking my fishing partner (dog) to shore for a nature break, I noticed walleyes leaping out of the water. There were not bugs flying around so I figured the pike must be chasing them. Caught a small pike quickly, so I switched to a larger setup. Landed a nice 41" pike. Stayed in the area and saw more fish and minnows jumping. I haven't witness something like this before. Is this common for URL?

a 41 footer eh? Makes the one we caught look like a minnow!!! wink.gif hehehe

We had a walleye jump out of the lake at one of my friend's minnow as he was lifting it out of the water... I told him we oughta start doing figure 8's like the muskie guys!

And all you guys said the DNR was nuts for producing the wallbass license plates! grin.gif See they really do exist... but only on RED!!! grin.gif

Good Luck!

The walleye are chasing shiners in the shallows and will surface from time to time while attacking prey.

I saw a couple do that on Winnie last labor day weekend up shallow chasing young perch around.

      I'm hoping the snow they are forecasting shows up. Because then it's on for sure.    Put new glass on the light weight .223 so I don't have to carry the heavy target weight gun around. Just not practical where I hunt to have a 300yard gun. A 150yard gun will do just fine.    When you cary a shotgun and a rifle on almost every stand a few extra pounds can add up in a hurry.    Good luck tonight moose

      Twin is pretty deep. One of the last to freeze over in most years.    I wasnt home yesterday evening to see if any more kids went through the ice.    I will did the spud out and see how thick  it is by shore tomorrow.

      We wait until the snowmobile club stakes the trail before going through the narrows.
