  1. Got my June Walleye trip in and it was a good one. Weather was perfect for the most part, water clarity was good a little Dingy for Bull but good for fishing, Caught Walleye every day Bottom Bouncing, only 1 or 2 keepers each day 25” the largest 19 to 22 for the rest. Fish were 30-35 ft deep off of main and secondary lake points although I probably spent the majority of my time on secondary points hooked up with several Fat Spots 4 small mouth and an occasional LMB and of course the ever present Monster Blue Gills A lot of bass working the surface Early morning I was tempted but stayed knee deep in the worm dirt MLF showed up on my doorstep Weds as I was camped across the creek from the High Water Ramp they we’re having one of there Cup tournaments only 9 boats competing. Identical 18’ Nitros all the competitors cameramen and officials get a break midday come in and grab a sack lunch they beached next to my campsite for lunch, then back out, 7 hours total of fishing they were a super nice group of people and apparently tore them up on top water and chatter baits as the front and rain came in Weds. morning
  2. Thanks for the info!! Weather forecast looks favorable next week so heading that way Sunday will fish til Thursday hopefully I will have some success and can post a report and some good pics of Some BS Walleye Thanks Again
  3. Well that’s good to hear!!! Thanks so much!!
  4. I like to scratch my Walleye itch in June normally the 1st or 2nd week of the month. But I fear I may have to use Benadryl this year. I normally find them in 20 to 25 ft of water in early June, my preferred method of fishing is bottom bouncers with a worm harness. I’m familiar with there normal water level living quarters this time of year and feel confident in catching a few, last year was an exceptional year So doing the math with the known water levels (had to take my shoes off) I’ve Ciphered that the stinking fish are in the brush. Worse than that, I fear that there scattered all over the place in the brush. Where’d I put that Benadryl? Anybody targeting the toothy critters with success in this high water? or is everyone picking them up while fishing the brush for bass I guess bottom bouncers don’t have to bounce on the bottom I have rigs with line counters so I’m wondering if a guy could troll over the top of the brush and entice them to come out for a snack, or will I just spend all day swearing at the brush I’m hung up in. any ideas or experience on how to target them or is it just one of those years
  5. If you have not fished much for Walleye I would suggest 2oz. Bottom Bouncers, most of the bait shops around the lake sell them and I like Slow death worm harness’s single hook with a copper, chartreuse or silver blade or propeller type blade. Thread the crawler all the way over the hook,cover it up, pinch the crawler off about an inch behind the hook.i also like the Gulp leaches and worms there not nearly as messy as the the live crawlers and more durable if the Blue Gills are working you over, but the crawlers will get you more bites, get your boat in 25’ of water and with the boat not moving drop your bait to the bottom, count it down unless you have reels with counters.Troll at 1 mph to 1.5 generally speaking you fish Bottom bouncers on the bottom... but don’t be afraid to count it down 25’ and troll in 30’ or even 35’ Best I can tell Walleye are about like all the other fish on Bull Shoals, so if your trolling an area and catching spots or Gills move out a little deeper, I don’t think the panfish like to set at the dinner table with the Walleye....not healthy. Good Luck and by all means HAVE FUN!!!!
  6. See previous post for description and history of boat The high back camo seat does not go with the boat I have the other matching seat it’s in good condition
  7. Putting my 2005 Supreme up for sale its a 2060 series I Purchased this boat in 2014 15hp Mercury has been well maintained runs good starts easy, 2 years ago I hit a Rock at the confluence of the Buffalo and the White broke the drive shaft off at the Power Head really strange because it did not do anything to the prop or skeg had certified Mercury Mechanic tear it down and replace Drive Shaft, Mercury was selling a kit for the 03's to 05's Mechanic said probably a bad temper on the drive shaft since the Skeg and Prop were not damaged and Mercury had a kit for those years I added a Minn Kota 45 lb foot control Trolling motor like new in 2015 also put a depth Garmin Depth finder on Last Year No SCREWS in Hull everything on with adhesive Has a nice Boat Cover Made Local south of Mountain Home on Hwy 5 guess its a 2005 also 2 live wells .... but previous owner Glassed the hole over on Starboard live well to make it a storage area.... works okay every thing stays dry Has 2 Spider chairs and a Pedestal seat in front just behind front Deck and Pedestal seat at stern Seats 4 but that front Pedestal seat is really for casting from the front deck EZ Loader trailer.... Tires new in 2015... Maxxis Trailer tires there not cheap. Spare on Trailer... Hub bearings checked and repacked when I had the tires put on Hubs have Bearing Buddies Overall Condition is 7 out of 10 interior is excellent seats are good no tears but some wear on the edges exterior has minor scratches on Gel Coat on bow One Dime Sized chip in Gel Coat on Front Corner of Bow not in the Water so no real concern Boat has been stored inside since I have owned it, I think it was outside and covered with previous owners Not Sure what to ask for it I paid $6500 for this boat in 2014 I'm looking at another boat, have 2 power boats now, wife says I don't need 3...... so guess I will have to sell this one Don't have any good Detailed Pics but I will take some for you WARNING THIS BOAT TENDS TO CATCH ALOT OF FISH!!!!!!!

    Walleye

    Fished Bull several days the last 3 weeks for Walleye, bite has been good. Your plan will work, fish seem to be moving deeper as the hot weather persists, start at 20’and work into deeper water until you find them. Don’t know about K Dock and what the water level is on the ramp there good luck and have fun
  9. Yes I have the app and wil definitely keep one eye on the flows. I was hoping we could find some spots to land the boat and wade. Thanks again!!
  10. Thanks for the report!! Two guys from Michigan coming down to fish with me next Sunday through Friday they are brand new to fly fishing, hoped to get them in their waders but the chances of that are slim, but happy to get my Supreme back on the river. We will be staying just upstream of Cotter at His Place Resort and fishing upstream from there, sounds like the river, barring any more rain, or the COE opening the flood gates on Bull will be in pretty good shape. Hopefully they will hold the generation back for a few more days. I think they will have to. But we will all have spinning gear also. Will post some reports next week. Also heard there is a bridge out on Denton Ferry Rd, South (I think) of Wildcat is there any truth to that??
  11. I own a Supreme 2060 Series I went the less expensive route with a Motor Guide regular foot control 45lbs Thrust Likes: Tons of thrust for this boat. Can set a spider chair on casting deck and fish sitting down. Can easily remove trolling motor and only leave mounting base on boat. Dislikes: Only control boat from the deck, i was trolling for Walleye at Bull Shoals and with a big open boat like the 2060 it would have been very handy to be able to have control in the back or middle of the boat. Foot control takes up a fair amount of room on the casting deck.
  12. Ham I think you will find those boots to be pretty rugged. i have only owned the old fashion lace style Korkers so not sure about your lace system, although I have a fishing buddy who has owned that same boot for a while and really likes them with no problems with that lace system. I am on my 2nd pair of Korkers,purchased my first pair in 2010 for a trip to Montana, size 12 out grew them!! I'm 58 years old and my feet are still growing, no seriously they are. I use to wear a 10 my newest Korkers I bought last fall are size 13....for some room to grow. First pair had years of fishing left in them, I wear the studded soles and have never been more confident wading on slippery rock surfaces They were great in Montana we fished Rock Creek which is aptly named,very slick cantaloupe size rocks, a couple of the Guys who had felt soles modified them with hex head screws. They own Korkers now. I have wore them numerous times on the White and Norfork Rivers. There are a lot of good boot brands out there, but I will never wade again without studded soles.

    31" Walleye

    Caught that fish Tuesday Morning not Monday I'm retired now and loose track of the day of the week. Caught it on a bottom bouncer slow death crawler harness, trolling a point around 25 ft deep.fished Monday and Tuesday only keeper I caught, but made the trip worthwhile for sure. My old scale said it 10 lbs, was not sure if right, but I checked when I got home and it is accurate.
