Oneida Lake Walleye Trail

4 posts in this topic

There is a walleye tournament coming up this weekend, it's out of the Old Boat House across the street from the walleye hatchery. Here is a link to it. The flier says this Sunday but it's this Saturday because of the New Eastern tournament on Sunday. The best thing about the OLWT tournament is that it's $30 per team and should be a good time with a professional format.

We had a great day on the water, we landed a total of 25 walleyes. My partner and I took second (lost by .45 oz.) with a total weight of 11.45 lbs with a 2.73 lbs big fish (lost big fish by .18 oz.). It was was a great day on the water and secret lure in 10 -13' of water was the ticket. I lost a hog at the boat just as we were netting it that would have easily pushed the tape measure at around 26" and my buddy had one on that we saw good that was just as big, funny how those big pigs always get off. I did find one heck of a school of sunfish and crappies (going back this week to get them), the secret was finding the perch and you knew you were into some walleyes (and LOTS of pickerel). The walleye's in my livewell were spitting up 6" perch. One thing I do need to get and that's an Oxygenator for the livewell, 5 walleye's all over 20" sure do need a lot of fresh water with oxygen. I'll see if I can get some pictures on later.

Nice job Lee! Second is nice but that has to hurt being so close...

Shallow fish feeding on perch - sounds like a swimbait bite. Big plastic, 1/2 oz jighead, and keep her moving... or that "secret"...

    • whitefish maybe? 
    • If I understand correctly this only for bows. I have a crossbow and from what I understand it is considered a firearm. Is that the case? My son has a bow and has the archery tag.
    • so ... dillon has a bird to enter and 1957 is still hunting? looks like we are in good shape, but lot of guys still hunting in MN and WI, i assume   ended my season friday. got the blind set up before the shower started. it quit right before sunrise time and there was lots of gobbling on the roost a couple hundred yards away but none where i heard them close by when scouting a couple days earlier. a few distant gobbles on the ground, then nothing after the rain and wind picked up again. finally saw a hen step out of the woods about 830 and start heading toward me. soft yelps kept her coming, then out steps a big tom and several more hens heading my way but when they got to an opening in the fence from the stalk field into another timber, the tom paused, i had the bead on him, decided it was too far, and then they were gone the rain quit a half hour later and i ramped up the calling with some louder yelps and cutts. a few minutes later a head comes over a rise in the field and its a solo tom. he ignored the dekes and headed toward the fence gap where the others went, stopped and fanned without gobbling, but some soft yelps, clucks and purrs kept him coming my way. dropped him at 40 yards after stepping it off to where he lay, i kept going to where the other tom left the field and it was 55 big steps, so glad i didnt shoot went 23, 10, 1 but the rain cut loose again on the way back to the truck so i didnt take pictures  
    • If you were anywhere close to southern Minny I would invite you over and let you drive mine and show you the things I look for both in the jeep and plow since mine seems pretty close to what you are looking for. If you have any questions PM me.
    • Good luck PFUNK! Looking like that will be my next day out too. forecast looks good as well!
    • I think the TJ might be the best choice with the 4.0 which is what I did.I bought the plow used after the fact. I got the plow for 1200 but the wiring was not good nor was the mount so I had a new custom, heavier duty mount made at a fab shop and I bought a brand new wiring kit from Western. I also bought all stainless bolts for it so there are no rust issues with them. Wiring the plow was a task. I basically had to remove the entire interior including console, seats and many dash parts to run the wiring.   One thing to consider- There is really very little room for much of anything in them. Running new wires, adding a speaker anywhere or even having 2 guys, 2 guns, a dog and a cooler is a tight fit. The back seat works for kids but not adults and mostly I take my back seat out so I have at least some room to put stuff. Running the wiring to run the plow took probably 8 hours or more spread over a few days and for a bigger guy it's pretty much impossible to reach under the dash and run wires,connect to fuse blocks even with the seat removed.    But the ability to take off the top and cruise the gravel roads with no doors while hunting is not possible in basically any other vehicle except maybe a Manx Dune buggy which has also been on my bucket list and those aren't 4x4. 
    • Anyfish is correct,I will add you can buy a archery tag and hunt the entire rest of the season in any turkey zone.
