Wednesday evening, Oct. 17 -- what gives?

Recommended Posts

My son and I were out of Eddy's last night and fishing around the casino area ... we were pulling all sizes and colors of husky jerks in mostly 6-10 FOW (but we tried as shallow as 3 feet and as deep 18 - we ranged all over), with a speed mostly around 1.5 with the gas motor (but we changed often between 1 and 3 mph, and even used the trolling motor a while against a bit of wind) and we let out over 100' of line. We fished 4 hours in fairly descent

conditions (53 degrees; cloudy; wind out of the east at about 8 mph, so we were rocked from side to side pretty good) .... and we caught one walleye of 17" and that was all! What gives? Are the eyes still deep, or what? Isn't it cold enough yet? (I didn't take the temperature of the water, but I thought it was around the low 50's) ... donmc

I would say you had too much line out for the depths you were fishing at the speeds you were going. 50 - 70' is typical for my boat and I would also probably be concentrating in 3 - 7' of water. You want just enough line out so you "tick" the bottom from time to time but not often. One other thing to consider trying is smaller profile baits until the water gets in the mid-40's.
