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!

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.

little to much extra time on your hands?

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....

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

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
