Doesn't sound nuts to me Brownie. I've caught them there in other lakes. Sometimes pitching right into the reeds.

I get quite a few of my mid summer eyes pitching jigs right up into the reeds/ weeds on certain lakes.

Pitching to the weeds and trolling along the weeds lines in the shallow as of late has worked very well for me. I have been letting my crankbaits just tick off the bottom. Yes, one will foul with weeds every so often but it has been catching me fish.

Good luck.

I pulled walleyes out of 4 ft of water just last week on another area lake. Sometimes the inside edge of a weed bed can be hot. Again not usually my first pattern I try and on a league night without establishing this pattern by prefishing I'd skip it.

But it's not as crazy as it seems. Lots of food there. Guess what? Walleye like to eat. wink

If you don't think walleye go that shallow in July you're missing out on a ton of fish. I highly, highly doubt that people in your league are on here giving you bad tips.

Dude I am not in any fishing leauge, I was just trying to help, and if you know it all why the heck are you asking questions. As for the advice or what ever, my dad once told me fish do not read books, so they do not know where they are suppsoe to be, if there is oxeygen, cover and food, there will be fish there.

ok, i didnt say you were in a fishing league.... whats your problem???? go back a week and look, someone told me to fish walleyes in 3-4 feet, i didnt say it was you.... and no, i normally dont fish in this area, so how should i know it all? i fish up north where the big fish are, and where you can get out on a lake without 100 boats already out there.

No there isn't, they are ALL up north because every lake around here has 100 boats on them, heck one time I saw a 352 boats on Island Lake. LOL

It is amazing that you counted them all! I do not know if I would have the patience to sit on shore or in my boat and count other boats as they moved around on the lake.

Hey, muff, you seem real pleasant..and I'll tell ya eyes follow the food...And if the food is shallow, they will be too. Its simply a myth that walleyes are always in the deep, every lake is different--and if people take the time to write write you a tip, appreciate that they took the time and just keep it in mind, you dont have to fish there...

yup the eyes are shallow,my dad fishes walleye trail tourneys and he has been fishing shallow,the minnows hatched there babies and there is to much food for them,got to wait until all the minnows are eaten up before the fishing becomes good,i think the slowest or being anchored when on top of fish is the best bet now...been doing very well on mil lacs i have been,the best in years for me....

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year. 
    • delcecchi
      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.
    • Hookmaster
      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.
    • MikeG3Boat
      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.
    • Shulsebus
      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
