Fishing Report - 6/4 - 6/5

7 posts in this topic

Fished Winnie all day both days.

Water temp: 62-63 Degrees

Marked quite a few on the "big bar line" both days...

On 6/4, went to a lot of places on bars and did well - a catch and release day...

On 6/5, got creative in an area on the West side and it was "like taking candy from a baby..." Nailed them. Limited out in short order - all 15 to 15.5 inch Walleyes.

The Shiner fishermen were pulling up just small Perch.

The Launch came through where I was and they caught nothing but Perch, lucky it was a short period of time I did not catch one when the Launch was passing through or they would have been all over me. I hooked one shortly after he trolled by, so I turned my boat away from them and scooped it up without him seeing it.

Kept catching Walleyes on Leeches only.

Even though I am back here in Iowa and just have to read how you all are doing on Winnie, the memories are still fresh and its like being there!!! lol

Nice job of concealing yourself from the launch FFL. I know that feeling of being the first to start the action going and then everyone joins in. Most of the time its not bad and everyone can get their share, but there is always one or two that spoil the party!!!

Welllll... I better not say. It's kinda of a small area and Walleyes congregate there. It can be a feast...

Us old timers (yikes!) (I've fished Winnie A LOT since 1965...) know about it. Sorry, nice try though... wink.gif

I looked for your boat, but didn't see a red pro-v.

That's great! Sometimes they bite one one bait in an area and another bait a ways away.

The Shiner run has about started, so the Walleyes came in for them.

How 'bout the Fish Fly Hatch on Wednesday morning....

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

          Barry is retired. I bought his boat and fished her unitl I got the 38'er. Team Crush is still using the old Whitewater.   Barry does work on my boat occasionally as the first mate.
