Anyone doing anything good off shore yesterday?
Any info would be Greatly Appreciated!
Thanx and Good Luck!
We caught fish in multiple areas of the river today on every technique that we tried. Vertical jigging, live bait rigs, flies, 1/4 oz hair jigs, jig and minnow, blade baits, you name it when you hit the right areas the fishing was phenomenal. The official fish counter had 160 totaled up from 9 am to 345 pm. Fish were all sizes and more keepers than we needed.
Today was very good. Fished with jig and minnow. Caught many fish in the slot. Females are very hard but some males are milking. Caught 3 man limit and many short fish on split shot and minnows. Heres a nice 28" for the frying pan
Water temp was 37 degrees water level seems like summer normal levels. Fishes were caught casting towards 9' flats and letting it drift into 14' drop offs.
"Great day on the river!"
Today i fished with mike and his father- in- law Willie, Both great guys who have booked trips with me in the past.
Water temp in the morning was around 38.5 late afternoon the water temp hit 40
Fishing was very good today! We boated over 70 eyes,few perch,crappies, 1 smallie and 1 fat cat.
90% of our fish today came on plastics (Ringworms) Caught a few fishing out towards the main lake on 1/4 oz jigs tipped with large fatheads.
Water has come up around a foot since yesterday. They had 1 gate wide open and another 1 half way today, A lot of good current. This should really get the walleyes on the move!!
Good luck, Be safe!
I will be fishing either this Thursday or Friday. Was wondering if Walleyes are up near the dam or down river. 2 hour drive for me, but, not a big deal as I am retired. Usually I fish up near the dam, but, this year there isn't the water. Just asking for a little help to get me started in the right direction. Thanks in advance.
Water levels are still on the low side,There has been one gate wide open for the last 4 days! Water has come up around a foot since Friday.
"Still need to take caution running up and down the river!"
Water Temp over the weekend, Was 37.5 to 38.5
The bite has been good, Few big females showing up to the spawning grounds. Lots and lots of small males in the 12" to 16" range. Also found a couple good spots holding some nice perch.
Now booking Guide trips for the spring walleye run and the rest of the open water season!
