    rps reacted to Walleyedmike for a article, September 3,4,,5   
    Went down to Stockton after the holiday to enjoy some week day walleye fishing. Tuesday the 3rd had only one keeper and probably 15 shorts. Wednesday the 4th wife and I both limited. All nice 16" to 18" fish. Had to work for them and sort though another 18-20 short fish. Wednesday the 5th we went out in the morning, needed to quit fishing around 10 AM to get stuff ready to head home. I limited, and the wife caught three. Fun trip! Was nice to put a few in the boat as I struggled with the high water this summer! All fish caught on small flats in 12-18' of water. Bottom bouncing at 1mph.

    rps reacted to Jim Spriggs for a article, Back-to-back PB smallies   
    I haven’t posted in a while. But, yesterday’s outing was a big one for me. I launched in the afternoon and jetted through pelting rain to chase smallies.  The conditions seemed good for some bigger fish to be out feeding.  And, the Meramec River did not disappoint. On consecutive casts, I caught a 20.25” and then a 20.5”, breaking my previous Meramec PB of 20” and 4.2#.   My scale decided to not work, so I don’t have weights on these two fishThe bigger one looked like a real warrior—it’s jaws were scarred up and had a bunch of holes.
    What did I catch them on, you ask?  The new HD Hellgrammites (green pumpkin) on a shakey head jig.  I bought a few packs at Denny Dennis in Fenton.  
     
    So, thanks Tackle HD for helping me catch (and release) truly awesome fish!

    rps got a reaction from WhateversBitin for a article, 30 July on the Upper End   
    A couple of days ago bobby b on this forum sent me a message. He asked if I could give him a few pointers on trolling for walleye. I pointed him at an article and invited him to join me this morning.
    We left the marina in the fog at 5:30 this morning and motored slowly until we could see to get up on plane. I took us down lake past Big M and began to show him walleye structure of various kinds and how to use what equipment to maximize his chances. In the first three hours we caught a few bass and one sub-legal walleye. Not very impressive guiding. Upstream of Eagle Rock I caught a nice crappie and put it in the box.I hoped it would not jinx the rest of the day.
    At the last spot I planned to show him, he caught a sub-legal walleye as well. On the second pass, he hooked up with a good fish, right at 24 inches and 4 pounds.What a relief! All the pressure evaporated.
    Water temp 82.5.
