I've caught some eyes with the longer powerbait worms. However, that was in the boundry waters where they will bite anything. Not sure if you could catch any metro eyes with em.

Ive caught my fair shair of walters while targeting bass with shakey head/straight tail worms and texas rigged ribbon tailed worms. Though I wouldnt say Ive caught enough to make it be a go to tactic for me.

That was probably my podcast from last year that you heard.

At times I love big plastics ---- I call them bass plastics because most of them are traditionally thought of as bass baits. They're great for fish in shallow water. Some of my favorites are 4 and 5 inch minnows, flukes, and swimbaits. Ringworms are a traditional walleye bait and work great. Even senkos will get bit by walleyes (I almost never use them for walleyes, only when I'm goofing around). I usually fish 1/16 to 3/8 ounce jigs, sometimes weighted hooks, and sometimes even unweighted hooks, so they work best in water less than 8 feet deep. 6 feet and less is ideal.

It takes a while to develop confidence in baits like that, but at times they can be outstanding.

alot of bass plastics can be used for walleyes, such as swimbaits (there was a segment on the infisherman show about using them) also when fish are holding shallow in weeds or wood, they will take lizard and creature baits very willingly. soft jerkbaits have been excellent producers of walleyes for me.

i have also caught some walleyes while using shakey jigs and worms around deep weedlines during the summer.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
