I learned a heck of a lot about summertime 'eyes! I've never had good luck with walleyes in the heat of the summer, but now I've got some strategies that might actually work. Keep up the good work TO!!! How about a seminar a week? Haha....

Oh, they work. smirk.gif

Every week would be tough just because work and fishing would get in the way. I'd have to give up sleeping. grin.gif

Good job on the Shallow water artificial eyes Seminar. Lots of good stuff there. I figured out how to try to convince my "spinners & minners" co-fisherpersons to try artificials; Let them use a beetle spin tipped with a leech or minner should do the trick.....

TO - I went out to Madison last night to try some of the techniques you were talking about in the seminar. I bought a brand new shiny #5 shad rap bluegill to try. First cast by the rocks by the north side launch and BOOM a strong bite. I'm fighting this guy and get him to the side of the boat. It 's a big pike (I would say 5-6 pounds). I'm reaching for the net and snap, the line breaks (the steel leader didn't break). I get to see this guy swim off with my new 6 dollar lure. Moral of the story: listen to TO, and buy lots of shad raps!

By the way, 6 out of 10 casts with weeds? Try 10 out of 10 with weeds. Holy lake strangulation Batman!

Don't be afraid to rip (i.e. abrupt twitching or jerks of the rod tip) your lure as you retrieve. This will help keep your lure clean as you bring it in and also the change of direction in your lure often times can trigger a bite. Oh, ditch the leader too. grin.gif

Any chance of getting the abbreviated version, since I missed the seminar? Are you looking for "lipped" shorelines (more depth at the water's edge?)

Do you have a method for eliminating water?

Thanks for the help - or pointing me in the right direction...

The abbreviated version would be tough. Perhaps you could send me an e-mail at info@tightlinesguiding.com and we could try to work through your questions from there.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
