The Hunt Continues...

Recommended Posts

Some may have been following the photos I have posted in the Walleye and Chequamegon Bay forum, but I thought I would make a post here as well on the phenomenal bite I have encountered over the past week..

Chequamegon Bay here on Lake Superior is noted for having a great abundance of walleyes.. but is also noted for having a pretty difficult bite, especially during the winter months. For years, I have scoured the basins, breaks, flats, rocks, sand, grass, and everything inbetween for a consistant walleye bite... And as luck would have it, one day on a guide trip, I stumbled upon one.. And one that produces not only numbers of fish.. But big fish as well...

The length to girth ratio's on some of these girls is just down right unbelievable.. And the cool thing about it.. At times you can sight fish em!!! Seeing a big shouldered walleye come shooting in and nose up to your lure is like watching a big booner buck come rushing in on a scent trail!!!

I will continue to try and find more of these spots and I hope this type of bite continues for many more years to come.. All fish over 20 inches have been released!!!

I am from Ironwood and I fish the bay ALOT in the spring time. I usually fish the mouth of the Bad but really haven't had a ton of luck in the Winter time. I some times fish the Hot Springs with some success in the Winter. I am not asking for GPS points I am just aksing if you are going out of 2nd landing? I am guessing you are being you stated you are sight fishing.

Come on Jim through a guy a bone huh? If you are interested in some 2lb perch in Late Feb, let me know we can hit Lake Gogebic together...

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
