This afternoon I had a father and 9 year old son out casting.  Within the first 30 mins the 9 year old had three walleyes in the boat before his dad or I could catch one.  We caught just shy of 20 nice walleyes, missed allot and landed a bunch of other fish. Snapped a picture before we released these 20" twins to fight another day.

Other past trips this week all have had limits of walleye and plenty of bonus perch all caught jigging and casting with light tackle.  I still have been jigging crawlers on the edges of reefs and casting the shorelines or rocky transitions.  Most fish have been ranging 15"-19" and some over nice 20's that have been released. 

I do have a few days open, call or text me to get your date reserved!

Ryan. A real simple explanation is snap weights. Get the precision trolling app and look under offshore tackle to get the charts. Speed can also be a factor with harnesses.

Hey guys, please excuse my lack of knowledge of walleye fishing, but I keep hearing people say they pull crawler harnesses, my question is how do you get them to stay at the depths you want for trolling. Thanks for any help.

Personally I have my possession limits on this beautiful lake. Have not fished in 2 weeks. I am choosing not to feed all my neighbors, friends and family. Eating fish 3 times a week I'll be back soon!

The walleye bite continues to be beyond excellent and has to be one of the best summers I can ever remember for Winnebago .  Windy days have been incredible on the reefs while the calmer days seem to have good fishing at low light conditions. I've been casting crankbaits or bigger jigs with plastics in order to keep the small perch and other junk fish off. Trolling on tops of the reefs is also working pretty good.  Fishing will be hot all through September with the panfish, whitebass and walleyes all setting up nicely. Half day or full day trips for either mornings or afternoons available.

Cheers!

I agree. The guy in the striped shirt looks like he caught a small striper not a white bass.
