How to catch walleye!

How to catch walleye!

It has come to my attention that some people think fishing for walleye can be well a Challenge! I find this handy tactic to work well in the summer. What you have to do is treat walleye fishing just like ice fishing. Yup, it's as simple as that. All you need to do is find a boat anchored all by themselves on a local lake where someone once caught a walleye. You then motor up to with in casting distance of the other boat and anchor. You can now lower a minnow or jig or a combination of both over the side and wait. Sooner or later other boats will see the two of you anchored there and will move into casting distance where they to will anchor. The three of you will soon grow into four and then to eight. The walleye swimming below will seek the shade from all of these boats over head and just like the boats soon two or four or eight will move in under the boats.

Now here is the important part, someone needs to catch a fish, don't have to be a walleye but someone needs to have their pole bend some and a fish needs to be brought to the boat, It works best if the fish is landed on the side of the boat where no other fishermen can see how small it is. After a quick release the rod must be rebaited and tossed back over the side. When someone yells "What ya catch?" The reply must be "A Walleye" This exchange makes the area you are in a "Walleye Hot Spot" you are now walleye fishing.

See Walleye fishing is really quite easy. Just make sure you have a good cooler, lots of cold drinks, pick windy days with the threat of rain and pack a lunch. Comin soon, How to catch Panfish!

You forgot the part where you toss in a yellow fish marker. Nothing atracks boats more then a yellow marker.

This is funny. Good post. You should always keep a 30+ inch rubber walleye or 40+ inch rubber pike in the boat to pull out of the water from time to time. That will always get people interested.

Hilarious! Love it! Power in Numbers. Perhaps this is a potential marketing tactic - tell them what you're catching em on and where to buy it!

You write that like it is a bad thing!

I tend to write stories when I post here. A little humor for those sitting under the hum of tube lighting.

Great post Bobby. Gotta love Walleye fishing. I enjoy the humor as I am also stuck to the confines of tube lighting and two massive computer monitors....

Hilarious, can't wait to hear how I can catch some panfish too. Memorial weekend seems to be a good time for me to try out your trick. I hope it puts some in the boat

Every once in awhile, tell your partner (just loud enough) to run the live well. This really gets their attention.

don't forget to tell your buddy to get the net. the use of a net will get all boats within glassing distance to come on in for a pass or two

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
