Streiff Results

No, but I did hear about a team a couple years ago beating the heck out of their bodies and snapping their trolling motor in half running all the way up to garden... :-)

Yeah, things couldn't have worked better for us. We had a plan, stuck to it and it paid off. Here's the story:

We found a spot off the edge of some rocks that has been producing big fish for us for five or six weeks(ten fish over 28" including two over thirty). (Check my "Too Much Fun?" thread a page or two back.) Anyway, we got the anchor set perfectly on the first try in the so called 6-14 mph wind (yeah right). The boat was actually swinging from 30' off the edge up to 25' on the rocks. I jigged up a 23" almost immediately, then fifteen minutes later I set the hook on my first ever 30+ inch walleye (30.5). We got her in the boat, and I couldn't even take her out of the net for a minute or two because I was shaking so bad. I bent the first tag all to heck trying to get it around the jaw bone,and finally had to grab a new one and have Mike put it on for me. While he was doing that, I dropped my jig back down and I'll be darned if I didn't catch a nice 26 incher. At that point we knew it was time to stick to our plan and head back across the to a spot where we had been catching nice eaters in the weeds the last couple weeks. It took us another two hours and twenty five minutes to put our seven under 19.5s in the livewell and head back to the dock. In all, we spent less time fishing (2hrs 50 mins)than we did driving the boat to our spots and back to the dock to weigh in (3hrs 30 mins). A big thanks to my partner Mike, Fisky (who placed 7th by the way-great job Bud), and to Conway, Wade, and all the folks at Streiffs along with the sponsors. If this sounds arrogant I apologize that is not my intention, but this really helped to validate all the time I spend on the Big Pond chasing those golden beauties. Thanks again to all. I'll see you on the water.

Even though I wasn't there to fish the tournament, I was glad I was there to see the results! Congrats to all you guys, even the ones who didn't do so hot but braved the elements! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the guys I fish with finish so well. Way to go! Talk to you and see you soon (I hope). P.S. Fisky, there have been rumblings around here of a fall trip up north....you may want to sharpen up the shears! 100_0826.jpg

Way to go Jon and Mike! Jon, you must have picked up a tip from Walleye Char, eh? Congrats to Fisky and Travis too. Looks like the big kicker fish were hard to come by. Jon, is your 30+ heading for the wall alongside Chars?

Thanks Steve. Yeah, Sportsman's Taxidermy in East Grand gives a certificate for mounting every year for whoever catches the biggest fish. I've been saving a spot on my office wall for this one though, so she'll have to put hers next to my salmon. I dropped it off on Tuesday, and they told me it would be about a year......the guy who is doing Char's said it will be ready in two months....oh well, at least mine was free.

Great job brother, tell Mike congrats for me! Good thing we didn't burn out that weed spot huh? Now we can work on a couple 30's for Stac and I seeing how you and Char are done with yours.

Many thanks you old goat roper. Get your butt back up here, that spot isn't wore out yet...

Shoot me an email when you can. My computer doesn't seem to remember your address and I have some pics for you.

      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.
    • MikeG3Boat
      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.

      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. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      Those are some fine specimens. Great job
    • gimruis
      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
