Anyone got any place that they would like to share with me to catch walleyes from shore. That is good anytime of the season.
Preferably public land. I've got bad hips and cant be lifting my canoe any longer, so Im stuck to fishing on the shore. If you have
any ideas of places let me know. Id be grateful for the advice.
Minnesota or North Dakota advise welcome.
Oh, Ill be fishing at night mostly. Ill be using live bait, Chubs and leeches.
I am renting a lakehouse on Lower Prior Lake early July with my family from CA. What recomendations are out there for some easy fishing that require the minimim of gear. Also any thoughts on trapping Crawdads....
In South Central MN it seems like Walleye bites are never continuous. They may bite for 3 days max in one spot, then your having to look for a new spot. I think its because some of these lakes are so pressured and fished alot that they are not hungry and they get scared. Also with the weather, the weather always changes and the pressure changeschanges, all these factors will change how they bite. Although in Canada the fish always seem to bite...
Good luck fishing! And I hope this helped. Here's a pictures of a walleye I caught on a local lake in South Central MN on June 4, 2015
Feel free to post fishing reports here for South Central MN. Mankato-Northfield-Faribault-Waterville-Albert Lea-Austin-New Ulm-St Peter and all the towns in between. Let's hear about some fishin guys!!!!
Can I cut the quick connect from the vexilar charger and then cut alligator clips off my lithium charger and switch them with no problems? I know there would be no issue with the alligators on the vex charger. Curious about the lithium with quick connect. The new 20 has the quick connect.
On a lake near Sugar. Got on to some great sunfish they were deeper than I thought 22 feet deep suspended at 14 feet. Nonstop for 2 hours a black tungsten jig worked best I did try plastics for a bit for building up confidence but the fish showed otherwise quickly. Went back to 3 euro worms 4 was to many . Then I got a 10.5 bluegill my first one and wouldn't you know it my phone was about 2 blocks away. So I let her go not going to keep a fish out of water to get a glory picture. Oh well next time. Get out while you can the lakes were good with the warm up but who knows in a couple of weeks. That was on Friday. Drilled a few holes for an older gentleman that just wanted to fish A while I was glad to help out enjoyed chatting with him. Then went out today almost the same thing but unfortunately near a community spot and within 2 hours everyone was out there and a dog peed on my fish house was not happy threw snow on the house cleaned when i got home I left soon after very rude people unfortunately and the fishing died right away oh well.
Well, gave Boulder a try today. Went out from the dam access. Some open water behind dam. Couple trucks drove out 😬 I did not! Foot travel, and not knowing anything about this lake made for great day to enjoy the weather. Only caught 1 perch and 1 walleye.
Wow ... the back held up today!! Always forget to take pics UGH ... wish i had taken some, just a great day on the ice. met some very nice people ... and enjoyed the great weather. brought home 7 Sunnies, 2 crappies, and a large mouth. Missed a bunch and caught numerous border line pannies. Great great time.
Just got back from fishing a lake close to home fished in 9fow managed to get 5 crappies around 10 1/4" used a 1/8th oz orange glow pinhead minnow tipped with a minnow head, also got some perch and two slimers, just picked up a ifishpro and a 36" TUCR with a okuma bait feeder reel I like the ifishpro much easier and better than usein a regular tip up, Anyone have a good recipe for pickled fish the wife wants me to try and pickle one of the slimers I got.
Met up with my cousin and his kids today to teach them how catch gills and crappies. The oldest who is 10 caught on quick and out fished his dad by an easy 6 to 1. He caught his personal best gill at 8.5 inches and his personal best crappie that went 12 and 1/16. He called me just now and said he wants me to take him fishing again tomorrow and next weekend. It’s easy fishing when it’s nice and the fish are on the munch.
We fished 10-12 feet of water and we used 3 mm jigs in white, gold, and metallic blue. They used wax worms and I used plastics. Spring bobbers were key for letting the kids see the bites. We kept enough fish for good fish fry for their family and grandparents. This is what it is about getting kids hooked on fishing.
