Yep same spot I've been going just went a little shallower this time. I have been catching lots of "eaters" but got these two hogs last night. Man I was pumped. Fished that spot 5-6 times, finally payed off. Big one was on a sucker minnow tip up, second one was plain hook and bobber with a rainbow. Haven't seen you around did you quit fishin or what??

Quit fishing? Is there such a thing? grin I've been doing the fishhouse thing, chasing slabs & pike, the last couple days. Looks like I should have been walleye fishing. Were you on the Rainy with Preston and his Dad this spring?

Yeah that's who i went with... the night before i just told preton we had to go up there and so we spur of the momment called his dad and told him we'd be there at 4am....we stayed up all night in prestons garage and got the boat ready, and made it to kennys house in the morning as planned. Although kenny's a little slow in the morning we got going. Slept the whole way there and caught more walleyes in two days then I thought possible. I caught that big one kenny got a 29.5in, lots of nice fish. Hopefully this year when we go I'll get ahold of something I can mount. Our rule is anything over 30. To bad at that time of year all you can get is a replica.

I have guards this weekend so I won't be out much. but if you see my blue clam stop on out, usually by myself so there is usually a seat open. Later man

JW,

I would give Gull Lake a try for some walleyes. There's a ton of spots and lots of walleyes and perch to be had. Stop into Sportland Bait and talk to Jason or Dave, they will hook you up with whats working and what areas to try.

Good eats

Hi Chris, the big 30"+ are usually big fat females. They hold thousands of eggs. Please practice C-P-R and we will all have a chance to catch them again and also have some eaters as well. We can't all rely on the dnr for restocking all of the lakes for us. The reproduction is so very important for our future anglers. Here is a 32" I caught a week ago and released smile Thanks WM

i don't think traxx can catch fish. I heard he gets all his knowlegde from a legend named Hep.

Now thats the funniest thing I heard all day. I think you have have that backwards there Trav. Bring your boy Hep up here and we'll go out and see. laugh I have a new weapon of mass pike catchability. grin

Well, I will have to say i was there that day Traxxx caught that fish. He also put back a 29" that was just as fat. I've got the pics for that one too.

Nice fish Wallmaster. Need one that size, helps fill out dead space at the cabin. I am a replica guy, makes it easier to mount at a later date.

Thanks guy's, I will try again next week for another one if I can. It sounds like it will be a nice week with the warm weather but maybe a little bit sloppy on the ice. Good luck!....WM

"Well" we decided to go fishing this last weekend (Burrrrr!!! it was cold) on one of my favorite lakes (Gull)and did pretty good for trophy's but no eater eye's. My wife beat me by a 1/4" with an Eye coming in at mean 29 1/4" mine at 29" and my friend at 26 1/2" and we missed a few others as well and all were released to be caught another day. Caught a few Crappies and had a few to eat mmmmmmmm!!! Here is a few pictures to check out---Enjoy! grin---WM
