Fish 1 Turk 0


Recommended Posts

July 10th, I have had a string of very good catching days lately for keeper walleye and saugers over 14"s. Today the fish kicked my tail and we ended up with only a 16"; walleye and 16"; sauger. I marked fish in places that when I mark them we hammer the fish, but it just did not happen. I am not sure if the walleye bite will slow from here on out or it this was a fluke, traditionally walleyes do not slow until late August.

On the bright side this is an opportunity to fish for the rivers hardest fighting fish the: channel cat, and the rivers top predator: the mighty muskie.

Ha, Turk. Are you keeping track over the long term, as I think the score would be pretty lopsided in your favor as you bring in some pretty nice catches more often than not.

How warm was the water? And were you marking bait balls too, or just fish?

Water temp was 82 but there is a cold blanket of water down at 22 feet that I graph all over the place.

Bait balls and fish! So it was a head scratcher.

Good luck fishing!

No way the mighty muskie is mightier than the mighty Flathead!!

I should really head over to the Croix soon for some cats and walleyes!

Keep at it Turk.
