What would you do?

8 posts in this topic

Been hitting the same spot for the last couple of days with good success, but today I got up early and nothing and I do mean nothing can the wind / weather change move them that far off where you were just hitting them. The area is large so I back troll back and fourth. Today with nothing biting I was trying all kinds of depths using Night crawler and leeches; I even switched to a rapala to get a bit. Guess what would you do is what I am looking for here!! Thanks

The fish may be feeling the pressure of you going over the top of them for 2 days or more. You indicated the area you're fishing is "large", so keep looking around the general area. I'm sure they haven't vanished.

What did the graph say.Were there any fish there? wind may have moved them. Like Otter said , check around the general area , a few different presentations,mabe they wanted a faster bait,bigger or smaller bait.I'm sure they werent far away but thats 1/2 the fun of it ( finding them)..

Was there any thunder and lighting ? That will shut down a bite for at least 24 hours if it is bad enough and some times that is just a couple of boomers and the next day is poor.

If the bait moves, so do the fish. Weather also might move them or turn them off. Yesterday I went to a spot where we had whacked 'em on Saturday, and I couldn't graph a fish within 200 yards of that spot. I gave up wondering where they went and started checking other spots.

If you were graphing fish on the days you were catching them, and now can't graph fish on this spot or get any bites, ya got no choice but to find a new spot.

Like any other predator fish go where their food goes! If they are not where they were they have gone somewhere else. Just motor around and you will find them eventually! Good Luck!

mmmmmm baitfish. They usually get moved with the wind if I am not mistaken.

If there was a good west wind the day before I would start looking just to the west of where you were finding them the day before. If it was from the east head east, etc.

But they might have also shut down for a day to becuase of major changes/storms. Could also be they are on to you. Try fishing similar structure on other parts of the lake if you just can't buy a bite any where near your current spot. Always more then one group of walleye in the lake. Might be time to go find the another group to pick on.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
