Walleye Help

3 posts in this topic

Hey everyone I have never really fished for walleyes much but amd starting to try a little harder. The types of places I am fishing for them is around a weed bed at about 10-15 feet. Also on some small bars and humps(sunken islands I suppose). What type of walleye fishing would you suggest? Sorry if this is not a lot of information if you need more please let me know! Thanks.

I would first talk to some of the locals who fish the lake a lot to see what is working for them or ask the folks at the local bait shop. They'll usually get you started in the right direction. Don't ask for specific spots, just general info like type of bait and techniques.

Sounds like you're hitting the right spots (weedlines, humps, drop offs). Next, its just trying to figue out what the fish want. Try slowly trolling a jig or spinner with a leech, minnow or nightcrawler. Maybe try troll a crankbait. Try casting a jig or crankbait.

Time on the water with lots of trial and error works for me.

    • Looking for a Wild win tonight, I don't think Kemper is going to get the start in this important game. I don't think anyone likes the five day layoff. Typical got to mess with something that works instead of just playing. Wild will come out of the break with a lot of games to play and little time off to rest anyone.
    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!
    •   And we've never won the war on homicide yet either
    • Have heard that's a fun arena to catch a game at.
    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.
