Walleyes on Big Pine

Recommended Posts

LadyFisher

I've never seen such good fishing for the end of July and such hot weather.

Between about 6 of us who have places at the resort we pulled in about 40 walleyes. Lots of 13-16" and then mostly 21-23". Still fun to catch even though they have to go back in the lake. The most surprising thing was that many of those walleyes were caught in the middle of the day.

Good fishing!

It's a wierd year. Everyone I know has been catching crazy amounts of walleyes for July. Lida shut off this past weekend, but before that it was great.

I agree the day time bite has been better then the night bite.

We did pretty good on Lida last weekend. Didn't think I'd ever spend two days on Lida anymore after the slot limits, let alone two days in a row. Pulled crankbaits over midlake humps. The walleyes were either too small or over the slot. Got a 22, 22.5, 23, 24, and 24.5 inchers plus the smaller fish. Had a fun fight the second day. My crank got hit big time. Told my brother it was big. After a long fight, turned out to be a smallmouth buffalo about 15 lbs. Fun, but ugly.

Just got back from a week on Big Pine. I agree that the fishing was great. Did mostly evening and night fishing and picked up an average of 3 each night went out. Highlight was the wife catching a 7 pounder. Also had a fun morning catching bass in the rice by the dam.

You must have stayed at our resort - I heard about a gal catching a 26 1/2 incher - must have been your wife.

We picked up another 7 walleyes this weekend and only lost another $20 in tackle. Not a bad weekend!

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
