Walleyedan's Report

Recommended Posts

walleyedan

It was a good week of weather and fishing. We fished Gull and North Long and both were good, it sure is nice to be able to fish outside again. It sounds like the weather will be changing and that is good for ice making. The walleyes that we caught on Gull were in 29-31 feet, we also caught some big perch (for Gull Lake). North Long was fun because of the mixed bagged, we didn't know what was going to come up through the hole. I had the Pillager High School Outdoor Adventures class out on Wednesday afternoon and we had a great time. We caught some northerns and walleyes and one of the students (Rachel) caught a 26 inch walleye on a tip-up. The fish over there were caught in 12-15 feet. Yesterday was another mixed bag day where we had some walleyes, northerns, a bass, crappies and perch. We are starting to plan for the Extravaganza and will run some type of specials at our new shop in Nisswa (just west of Holiday gas station and across from the water slide). Make sure to stop by when you are up in our neck of the woods.

Have a nice weekend,

Walleyedan

Thanks Dan, I have been finding some nice (for Gull) perch as well on top of some mid lake humps, with some walleyes moving in to those areas around the golden hour.

Saw your pic in this months WalleyeInsider, were you a part of that study as well?

Take care.

Crumpler,

I haven't seen the magazine yet, not sure what study it was.

I'll have to pick it up tomorrow.

It was a study that showed how much better walleye anglers on central Minnesota waters fared when fishing with a guide. Real interesting numbers from Gull, North Long, Pelican, Round, and Edward. The reference is cited in the article.

I like to fish with a guide or two each summer to learn a few new things and simply relax a little more than my normal day trip on the water. I "guide" my three kids on nearly every trip to the lake - great time, but not sure relaxing is the right word there.

Anyway, IMHO, Guides out-produce for four big reasons.

1) Identifying the best spot on the spots

(location within location).

2) Being on the lakes everyday is a big plus - patterns!

2) Top Shelf Electronics

3) Boat Control!!!!!!!

guide or average Joe, if you can keep your boat over

the fish you will catch more fish

Dan, you couldn't have been part of the survey for Walleye Insider even though your picture was in the magazine. According to the survey, it said all the guides surveyed out fished their clients. Whenever Jeff and I are with you, you always allow us to catch the most fish. If we start catching too many you won't put anymore minnows on our line and won't net our fish anymore.

Good Luck next weekend and hopefully you win some Arctic Armour - I really like mine,

Glenn

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks
