Walleye still being caught on leeches, or are people seeing a switch to crawlers?  Got some nieces and nephews up this weekend, and would like to help them put a few in the boat.  Thanks, Matt

I wonder if there is any connection to the fact that when the dnr guys pull their seine on my beach they get 150 or so nice perch? Run up to 4 or 5 inches.

 

They seine at a number of places around the lake 4 times every July and have been for many years.   This is way above what I can remember as typical.  And that is without the young of the year which are still too little to show up much.

Marked a lot of fish on midlake humps, a lot of inactive fish, but the ones that did bite were pigs in 3 hours we got 2 29s,26,24. Man are those fish crazy fat. The 29 was my new PB.

 

 

That is a nice fish! Congrats on the PB.

Congratulations bassbouncer.  How do they score the 20-26" slot fish when you can't possess them?

Catch, picture, release. They have a chart that gives the weight for the fish that you catch. The picture of the fish needs to be with it laying on their ruler which they give you at the start of the day

At the start of the day each boat gets a blank SD card, a ruler, and a couple scorecards to keep track of the fish. Pictures of the left side of the fish are taken on the ruler and the right side of the fish while someone holds it. We needed to bring a digital camera with

Bassbouncer, only the first 5 fish taken in pictures or can you replace  a smaller fish with a bigger one later?  The 44 lb winner is crazy; 8.8 lb/walleye average.

 Catch as many as you can and the 5 largest count. I would say that their weight chart is skewed heavier than normal but it’s the same for everyone. In my opinion a 28” fish weighs 8# and their chart has it weighing over 9#. The winners had (3) 27-3/4, (1) 28-1/2, and a 26-3/4

      My 115 merc 4 stroke (2006) is acting up.  At about 2/3 throttle, 30 mph, 4000 rpm's the motor seems to cavitate or rev up and the tach pops way up, but we didn't speed up.  I quickly backed off and ran at a lower speed.  I have it trimmed up on plane but not overly so.  It did it once at a lower speed as well.  Most of the time at lower speeds it riund fine. Brought it in and they looked at it and pulled the prop and everything looked fine there etc.  The motors lower plate seems to be located correctly, right at the bottom of the boat.  Going on one last trip, and don't really have much time to bring it in for an extensive diagnosis, might need to baby it and stay close to the landing.  Any ideas?

      Samsung Note 10+.  It does have a great camera.  Had to use the digital zoom on that shot.  Wish I had my wildlife camera with me.

      Try Darren Troseth at 3 rivers fishing adventures.  Fall is sturgeon  time.   He also specializes in catfish with a shot at a trophy.

      No doubt @papadarv!  They’re really good at it too.  The small family flocks have joined together where I’ve been seeing geese and now number 50+ typically.   We saw some geese and a few ducks today but didn’t shoot any.  We didn’t find anything worth setting up on.  Pretty amazing how slim the duck population is up here.  The biggest flock I’ve seen, including the drive up, numbered 5 birds.  It’s been mostly random singles and pairs.   The flooding up here has been amazing too.  Something like 10 inches in 25 hours.  Roads are flooded and the ditches are raging rivers.  The downstream sides of the bigger culverts look like power plant discharges.   We’re considering other options for tomorrow.
