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.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
