I can't catch a walleye for nothing. I know it is dog days and blah, blah , blah, but you got to get lucky eventually. I have been down deep, shallow, live, artifical and I can count on two hands the walleyes confused.gifI have caught for the last 4 months. I did not think I was that bad at fishing but I guess the proof is staring me right in the face. Anyone else having diffulculty?

I have had no problem catching walleyes lately, small- medium leeches or cranks long linning have been working. I did see a couple of big eyes up in 6 feet of water while fishing for muskies too so that may give you a hint.

We have had pretty good success with half a crawler on a lindy with a red #4 hook....14 to 18 feet...

4 ft leader...

I just read my post and found I can't even type right. I meant 4 weeks not 4 months, not that it makes it any better. crazy.gif

it isn't just you if you are on the west end. And judging by the lack of boats on a beautiful calm evening it isn't just me either. Wakemup was a ghost town tonite. Merrygo round, stove top, center island, like 3 boats total.

But it was a nice nite for a boat ride.

There is a good walleye bite going on the reefs on the East end.

Lindys with leeches or crawlers.

Cliff,

Tell me that the bite just started and hasn't been going on for a while. It's an ego thing. Hopefully my folks who are staying at my cabin are into them.

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
