Fun weekend with the Walleyes

Recommended Posts

Lisa and I got a late start on Saturday (let her sleep in because she had a long and stressful week)so we got on the water around 11 and tried a couple of spots and caught a couple of perch so tried one more spot and right away I had a bite and it ended up being my season best 29". I released it and got us back on the spot and right away had another bite and it was a 25" which I released. By this time the wind really started to blow to the point that my 55 pound thrust trolling motor could not keep up and we decided it just was not worth it and the bite seemed to shut down.

We got a better start on Sunday and went right back to the same spot and made a couple of passes with out any success and then I finally got one and it was a 25" and that was at 10:15 and at 10:55 I got a 24" and at 11:05 I got another 25" before things shut down. I feel bad that Lisa did not get one but I remember when she kicked my behind on the Lakers so I don't feel that bad. grin

P.S. I am really glad I taught her how to use the camera and that you should never chop off the tail of the fish or the fisherman's head.

The reason for the delay was due to Lisa still taking down the tent from the Honda.

Reelemin I am leaving your comment alone...........

I take it Jim and Lisa you were on the big lake, on a hump or two.

Jim, I know you are a good fisherman and a great guy cause Lisa told me so, but everytime I look at your avatar I think one thing...Pro Wrestler. A cross between Jesse the body and Hulk Hogan, oh yeah Paul Tuetel Sr. from American Chopper too.

Great photography Lisa!!! I know the feeling of being the one snapping the pics and not the one holding the fish, all too well.

Oh yeah, nice fish Jim. grin

Hey, you know what? When you got great subjects-it's easy!! Handsome guy and gorgeous walleye! What more could a gal want?

One tip Jim did give me was to put the flash on even if it's a bright day so there wasn't any face shadows and then focus the lens on the fish and then when focused, move up to his face and voila! Great photo! I kinda screwed up a couple without that flash and it makes such a difference.

    • this piece looks good, i interessting recipe for marinade. I make a meat with basil but want to taste new recipes. And one more think - i may advice you while smoking make a incisions if meat very broad
    • You sure seem to say Grill a lot though! 😏    
    • I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking
    • You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.   If you just want small runs of stuff that might work. 
    • Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.  
    • Yep.....😊     Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. 😋
    • I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc. 
    • No, I wanted both in one package.     A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.
    • Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous.   As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up. 
    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.
