Walleyes Pool 6 Questions

2 posts in this topic

Hi all, new to the board and in dire need of some guidance.

I've been out on pool 6 4 times in the last 3 weeks and have managed only 1.....8in walleye and a couple of bass.

Working the wingdams mainly but just can't seem to get anything to bite (even when the fish finder says there down there). Tried worms, leeches, minnows, crankbaits, Bottom Bouners, even the tried and true jig with a twister (thats always been my standby) and nothing. Use two poles both 10lb the line is clear blue/white, same as I've always used.

I hate to complain but this is my worst dry spell ever.

Any suggestions before I give up and take up watching paint dry!!!! Thanks again.

What I would recommend is fishing lindy rigs with powerpro on the topside of wingdams. Right now, leeches and crawlers seem to be working the best, but in the next few weeks the willowcat bite will be awesome. Also casting cranks on the topside of the wingdams is great way to catch them. We mainly fish from the middle of the dam out. We had a bunch of nice eyes on leeches and crankbaits a few nights ago. Give this a try. You can always stop into Daniels and talk with my brother Matt.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
