Waiting for Walleye's

Recommended Posts

ice-man/vexilar-king

Trouble and I took a few trips to one of the local lakes and sat and waited for the eye's to come to us and managed to Ice 9 eye's in four outings. Not the numbers were use to getting. We took a little time away from the non stop panfish bite we shared with everyone the day of the get together.

We tried alot of differn't presentations, but found a dead stick to produce the most and bigger fish. The lures had to almost be in the mud and sand. They wanted it close to the bottom. Glowing up your lure every 15-20min seemed to get the most action. Lots of fish coming thru that would sniff around and then bail before eating. If the weather flattens out we will return to this spot, but I think its time to start targeting the crappies over 12" with a few slabs mixed in.

Also when out in these colder temperatures we tend to close up the house tighter and tighter. Make sure that you are getting some fresh air in. I heard of a father son that died recently due to cabon monoxide poisoning (sad). I also had a guy i know get very sick and missed some work. This stuff has to work its way out of your system once it's in so be carefull. If your heater is making funny noises it could be a good sign to get a little fresh air.

One pic from the last couple days, no camera when Trouble was in em heavy. Too Bad.

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.
