Where are the walleyes?

confused.gif Where are all the walleyes?

Went to Reno Saturday night(5-24-03) caught one small one. Went to Big Birch Sunday(5-25-03) and Monday night(5-26-03) and only caught one. Went to Minnewaska Monday(5-26-03) morning didn't catch anything. Graphed lots of fish on some lakes and very few on others. Just couldn't get them to bite. Anybody know where the walleyes are biting.

Thanks for the info,
EYES

There were a lot of fish taken out of Reno over the weekend. Word has it that the tournament that was held on Reno last Saturday had every boat catch their limit of walleyes. I went out on Sunday and had moderate success and by Monday I didn't get a bite. There must have been 100 boats on Reno that Saturday, the lake just can't take that kind of fishing pressure.

I'm no expert but I would imagine this high pressure system we've been expeiencing with low to moderate N.E., Easterly, winds have to be a factor. I'm from southern part of the state & things have been pretty much hit & miss here. A little more cloud cover & more southerly winds (walleye chop) might help, but by the sounds of it they did great on Reno. Good Luck! f2f

I agree Reno can't take that kind of pressure. If everyone was catching fish, it will not last. But, not everyone catches fish. I have been out there and fished circles around people. Some people just don't catch on how to fish or had to many 12 ouncers.

I know who put that tournament on. Good luck to those who do not know the lake and those who do not know how to fish. There is a lot of locals in that tournament. Expecially the person putting it on. These people will literally out fish you and make you frustrated as hell. Hell, I have in been in there boats, and out fished 10 to 1. So, if you see a lot fish being caught by only a few particular boats, good chance those people fish there a lot. Keep an eye on what they are using, doing, everything. If you don't, well, good luck.

Again, thanks for the time.

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.

      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Another weekend is in the books. The guys in the cabins did all right but the fishing did slow. maybe due to the water getting stirred up from the winds and the cold front that moved through.. today Monday looks like its shaping up to be a beautiful day. ken is here for a couple days and scott and his parents are coming tomorrow for a day or two. The kids will be coming for the holiday weekends so I guess I better get the boat in the water this week. I held off due to the low water but the park was able to jump through some hoops and dig out the channel so I think I'm ok.  The access was crazy busy yesterday and I still have no clue where they all come from. I guess its just a combination of  other resorts and people with cabins with in 100 mile radius.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!
