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.

    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
