Where are they hiding? - The Sequel

Recommended Posts

With more than 50 hours logged looking, waiting, jigging, sitting, thinking and hoping - I have yet to catch a walleye who is just a wee bit bigger than my medium sized shiner. I am presently perched on an inside turn, 14 - 16' below the keel, weeds and a large feeding shelf behind, and a steady drop off ahead, on the south side of Brophy - those of you who have fished this lake will know the spot.

WHAT AM I MISSING???????????? I have fished deep (24 & 26') and shallow (11 & 14') along the weedline. I have used every piece of metal made, including a flash lure made from a spoon - in both twilight and pre-dawn.

Northerns are plenty as are the occasional fingerling walleye. NEED HELP !

Thank you, and -

Minnow, please.

Have caught limits of walleyes all week on plain red hook and 2" shiners, others using fatheads still catching fish not as many though.Fishing on the sharpest break can find goes from 16ft to 31ft in about 10 yards fish just off the end in 31, or 30 maybe even better but dont go to far up or to far out. And once again the fish are really spooky even that deep dont know why but any commotion no fish

GOOD LUCK THE FISH ARE BITING REALLY LOL

wcmnwalleye gives some good advice...and consider smaller bait....might go against the saying of big bait big fish...but if they're foraging on 2" shiners...the big ones aren't gonna draw em in...plain red hook and small shiner till you find where they're at...

btw...expect the bite to pick up as new years approaches...local co said best fishing so far was on Ida last night...lots of nice 'eyes being caught...reports from other area lakes seem to be showing a slight increase in 'the bite'

wishing good luck in finding 'em on Brophy...

keep fishing...

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.
