walleyes in dishpans?

Recommended Posts

where would you look for walleyes in a dish pan lake with no weeds at all, limited rocks and 3 huge sand bars?? ive been trolling spinners and rapalas with no previal but good hits.... also the lake is shallow 10 foot max, water clarity of 2 feet and temp is 80..

fish early morning and late evening

try leeches and crawlers on a lindy rig with a red of chart. bead with a red or chart hook and a 2 foot leader.

but first off you should motor around the whole lake and see where there are changes in the bottom and where you mark fish.

We got a lake like that here. Get the baits away from the boat, rods straight up. Fish what you can find for structure, sometimes the windblown shore. When you catch one open its gut and find out what its eating. Good Luck.

First and foremost, I'd locate the schooling bullheads or whatever the primary food source is. I'd also ask the local farmers where, if any, tiles are fed into the lake. Focus on those areas after a fresh rainfall.

Schools of young bullheads? They often school in tight bals in open water. I've done well pulling crank up in the water column through the clouds of bullies.

With the low water clarity, fishing during the would also work will. Use in-line planer boards to get your out to the side of the boat. Also baits that may give off a little rattle or moe noise may being more action. And yes speed up your pace. If your not using planer boards, go as fast as your baits will allow. Don't worry walleye can fish faster then you think, 4-5mph may seem to fast, but they can catch up quickly to grab a bait. Snap trolling also works well this time of year. they still have to feed in shallow lakes.

    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.  
    • I had a contractor do my garage floor.  Here is the work order and quoted amount.   Work To Be Done:

      -­‐Apply coat of clear commercial grade epoxy.  (4mil)
      -­‐Final coat of Armor seal 650-­‐sealer coat. (2mil)
      -­‐Cure time-­‐ 24 hours for foot traffic and 72 hours for vehicle traffic before use.
      Total Cost: $3,400
    • I did see Menard's had the 0 Degree when I was in there last night.  Not sure what kind of tip connection you may have though?  A last resort if you have a Dremel tool is to try and auger it out with one of their metal tips?  But that may be a long-many Beer day! 🤤
    • I feel like if the power washer works, it's going to be the easiest and most fun way of removing that stuff.     $7 on Amazon.
