Walleye report around Fargo???

Recommended Posts

Scoot

I've been swamped at work lately and haven't been out to chase old marble eyes. Anyone doing anything for walleyes in the Fargo area? Tribs or Red producing much yet? If not, I'm thinking after this little shot of cool air comes through this week we might see some good walleye activity kick into gear.
Who's been out and what do ya have to report?

For numbers they are not piled up anywhere in particular, that I can see anyway. The tribs are a no-go, too low for most to be anything special.....yet. Still doing my rain dance so it may change yet?

I have C&R 3 walleye over 29" this past few days, off "New Rock" areas. No live baits, just jigs and big minnow bait style cranks, all the "Usual Suspects". wink.gif

It may take a bit of leg work and casting before you score....but it is well worth it when you get that "THUD". The water is clear so they are feeding as you would expect them to under that circumstance Scoot.

I have a spot we should snoop over some evening before Saturday. Ya gots any Kermit's Scoot? wink.gif

I will be busy Saturday, and from the 29th on to Mid-October I will not be around much.

Drop me a call Scoot!

Scoot the area I had in mind is like a greased wall right now. Getting down would be a snap, one very quick trip for sure.

Getting back out again.....well....that may take a helicopter.

Lets see if the sun pops out before we attempt that spot. I don't want to look like Homer Simpson on a otter slide, do you?

You first Eh!

I'll try anything once! I don't know if you got my e-mail, but I'll be done at 4:00 or so today. If you're interested in going out then, give me a shout- 476-1850. If not, we'll wait for a nicer day.

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.
