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

      Trout/Wabana were really nice lakes, the one and only time I got to fish them 2 years ago. Would love to make it back up there some day. Too many places, too little time!
    • Rick
      Thank you for the report.

      I’ve never just canoed the river so I guess I can’t really debate that time estimate.  It’s always been a float/fish trip but casting only, not stopping to really work a deeper hole or anything.   I used to live on the river along that stretch.  About midway between Isanti and St. Francis.
    • Kettle
      Cambridge to St Francis is definitely a long float, Isanti to St Francis not fishing just canoeing takes me about 5-6 hours. If your going solo check out the central park in Andover. You can float solo for about 3 hours and you end up within a 5 minute walk of your vehicle since it twists and turns so much in that stretch. I have not caught many walleye that far south but definitely will get a bass or two

      My soft water season ended Saturday. Landed the boat and need to give it some TLC. I fished everyday in October and boated 304 walleye. Primarily fished my 5 favorite fall spots. Strictly used a jig/minnow.  Lots of nice stuff with a fair amount of smaller fish. To be clear I am a catch and release guy. I probably kept 8 fish. This is a picture of a nice one from my last day out..

      We got one gadwall yesterday.  Today duck motivation is low.  Clear sky and zero wind right now.  Going back to bed for a couple hours and then off looking for roosters or grouse.  Whatever works.
    • JerkinLips
      Fished Thursday-Saturday this week and caught only 12 walleyes in 2½ days, half as many as I caught two weeks ago.  Fishing was quite slow for me, and the walleyes were biting very light.  At least this week there were some decent meal size fish as only 2 were dinks along with 3 slot fish.  Caught another 26" walleye pictured, and this one weighed 5#-11oz, 1oz more than the one I caught two weeks ago.  Maybe it was the same fish and added another ounce.  Weather was nice today and it brought out a lot of boats as shown in the second photo.  Fishing wasn't good enough to deal with this crowd so I quit early.  Good luck fishing, and enjoy the fall.

      Had one of those days where I swear those ducks had bullet proof vests on!! Finn laid down after a bit and well my dad sucks!!
    • Wanderer
      Floating those sections of the Rum will take you much longer than you’ll originally think it will.  Be aware of that when you plan your trip.  I’m assuming the water is high right now as most rivers in MN are, so it could go a little quicker.   For example, Isanti to St. Francis will be like 10 hours without slowing down much to fish.  Figure about 1 river mile per hour to be a steady pace for a fishing trip.

      🤔 He wanted to teach Toto how to catch fish too?
