Hey guys,

i just wanted to say thank you for telling me some great tips!

I'm only 15 and i really love fishing!

I used to just sit on the dock at the cabin and fish the whole day while everyone else was tubing or doing recreation stuff.

And i just wanted to let everyone know that i have learned a lot from everyone.

I always need more tips on walleye fishing.

I am always willing to learn new things.

So if anyone has some tips that they'd like to share,

i would be more than happy to learn them.

you can email me at jkaufer at hotmail dot com

or just post them

Thanks,

YFG

Good to hear you are getting out and fishing. I learned very little about fishing from my family as they weren't big outdoorspeople, so I spent a lot of time learning on my own at docks, piers, and shorelines. There was also a lot of time watching Saturday morning TV and reading everything I could find in the local library.

Now you have something I and many other never had growing up, instantaneous information at your fingertips. Whenever you have a question or want to look something up or just browse, you can find it all here at fishingminnesota. Keep asking questions and you'll find your enjoyment of fishing growing. It's good to be curious.

You have one of the best walleye areas right next to you. The St. Croix river...read the St. Croix forum and you will get lots of walleye info. Then all you need to do is find a spot to do the fishing. Good luck.

You will pick up a ton of information on this site. The croix is going to start heating up in couple weeks and the bite will be back on. Stick with it, you have a lot of years to master the art or at least (like myself) have fun trying.

Here's something to try when you are fishing walleyes from shore. This can be especially effective on a river when things seem slow.

I like to use a spinning reel for this. Run your line through a walking sinker, you know the slip sinkers that have a banana shape. Place a BB split shot some distance up the line to keep your sinker away from your bait. I like to start with about a foot so my minnow, leech, or crawler is suspended just a little off the bottom. Tie on a floating jig head of your choice...as long as it's chartruese of course. wink Cast out into fairly calm water and let it sit on the bottom. I haven't had much luck with this in rushing water. After some time carefully pick up your rod and ever so slowly pull the hook toward you. For some reason, when I do this I will get a pick up. I can only conclude that the walleyes are sitting there watching my bait and when it starts to move, they nail it.

Bob

    • Well I had a little project that we found after buying our camper used. It had a leak in the back corner which 3 other same type campers in our camp ground had in the same spot. I sealed the roof a few years ago but have not had time to tackle the soft floor in that corner. Spent one weekend ripping out to find out what I had and a 3 day weekend repairing it. Had to build boxes as new supports to tie into the good wood past the rotted area. Really glad there were two metal frame supports under that end as I could span them with the new wood. Re-insulated and put new plywood down and it's looks great. Now my wife doesn't have to worry about getting into her side of the bed without going through the floor!        
    • Well I guess I could close the loop on my water heater since I finally had time to look at it.     I haven’t pulled the element yet but have filled the water and run through everything with my meter.  I’m 99% sure it’s the element.  I have 120V to it and it Ohms out at 2.  I figure that’s the water giving me that reading since the elements should Ohm out at 10 or more.  Basic rule I learned in shop: Power to the load; load don’t work; load is broken.  Looks like a $15 part.   What I did enjoy learning is getting the propane part of the heater operational.  Never had that before since the wire harness was apparently always disconnected from the ignition module.  I plugged that in and she fired right up.   Now to get my sealants put on tomorrow and clean and lube the bumpout gaskets.  I bought some LED light bulbs to try also.  And time to get a bigger TV installed in the main living area.  That 13 inches just doesn’t cut it with my eyes anymore!
    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
