report from rogers

wmn luv me walleye fearme

was out at rogers last wednesday through sat. Wednesday thursday were great. Picked up about 25 walleyes each day. Most were 14-19 inches. Almost all deadsticking. Caught only about 4 with the spoon. Friday it slowed down a lot then saturday we hit winnie. Biggest were a couple of 22 inchers. People at rogers were great would go back there next time for sure. No perch, no crappies, no pike all walleyes

What do you mean by deadsticking? Rod, sinker, hook, with live minnow or are you using a bobber?

That is exactly what dead sticking is!!!!! I will jig mine every so often, but it just to wake to minnow up...

just minnow, glow jig (red worked best for us) and bobber. I wasnt even able to lure them in with the jigging spoon.

I was up there a few weeks ago and I would not jig a fish up... Glow pink jig or demon jij worked the best...

We went out of Rogers also. 46 walleyes and 1 northen. Jigging did little. Most everything was caught on rattle reels with bobbers.

Great weekend!! Jerry is wonderful. I'd recommend Rogers to anyone looking to catch fish!

i spoke to his wife when i was going in on wednesday for a while. Told her I was going to be there until saturday and was expecting to pay for 4 days of a road pass. She asked if i would be on red most of the time. Said yes told me they only charge for 1 day then. He had tons of spots plowed out for the wheelers which was great to. Spoke to a couple of the plow guys that run there operations out of there and even though i wasnt renting from them they were plenty helpful to.

Yep. Same experience. We ran into Jerry when we hit the lake. he was plowing. He said "follow me" and took us to a new road he had just plowed. He had about 6 "slips" plowed for people to use wheel houses or portables. He plowed another spot WAY down on the end and put me there. We caught fish!!

Satuday morning we had multiple new friends show up and jump into the other plowed spots.

Jerry and his wife are amazingly helpful!! We have gone out of many of the roads over the past few years. Rogers is right on the top, tied with one or two others. Jerry and crew do a great job of making you feel welcome, sharing recent experience and advice, and plowing an assortment of areas to fish. I'll be back up really soon!

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.

      Gotta be careful to keep the holier than thou attitude under control whatever you decide to do. After all not much difference between bass, northern (looking at you harpooners), walleye, even gills.

      I have eaten quite a few small mouth bass from Vermilion and a few large mouth bass from other lakes. The smaller small mouth are not bad table fare! The larger fish taste like mud to me! All large mouth taste like mud to me!!😛 If you were to suggest to these fishermen that eating the smaller fish will make a much tastier meal, not to mention a much safer meal because of the contaminant level in larger fish, that may make a difference in what they decide to keep.????  But as you said, they can legally keep them of all sizes. The DNR approach of a size limit would be best! Cliff

      a sign that ASKS people to selective harvest, releasing the bigger fish to keep those better fish genes in the population if you keep fish eat smaller fish...the old bill dance quote "limit your kill not kill your limit.... catch what you can use and release the rest to fight another day"
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Nice walleye Reid! How big? Cliff
    • Wanderer
      I respect your conservation minded approach but trying to TELL people not to keep those fish will just get you more of the same response you already got.  I also agree <15 inch bass are better keepers.  I keep a few myself each year and rarely keep anything over 16, preferring 12’s for the table. I’ve been a bass tournament angler in the past and have also promoted staunch C&R, much like the modern muskie culture, but have grown wiser with age.  I still target bass quite a bit just because they’re fun! On a 300 acre lake I agree a small group of anglers can and will have an impact with constant return visits to harvest large fish but the only two things you can do about it is, 1) As mentioned, lobby the DNR for protected slots, and 2) When people are happy to show you their catch, congratulate them and mention you like bass too but find the smaller sized fish much better table fare.  And maybe that you also fell releasing the mature fish keeps reproduction up to sustain a quality fishery.  And be nice about it.  Once you turn people off they’ll stop hearing you. That’s about all I have for ya.  Good luck.
