  4. Thanks,I quit taking the local paper and have not read any of Larry's articles in a year or so. I always found him interesting and to tell the truth I would take his word over the MDCs. Thanks again
  5. One would think so,but I would'nt dare to presume to know what the corps is thinking.

    Anyone?

    This fron Kris Nelson ,Tandem fly outfitters June 10 at 11:40 AM Walleye bite is still excellent on points in 25-30ft of water. We have been catching them on a 1/8th white Jakked Baits shooter head. Fished from 3:30 to 8:30pm yesterday I'm waiting for a couple clear days to go up,Like to go for more than a day. Just spooled up some leadcore,anxious to try it.

    Not Stockton

    congrats,nice fish. How'd your duck season go?
  11. Thanks for posting this.Just listened to the full podcast.This will really open ones eyes to the seriousness of the problem.I'll be sharing this. Thanks again,Mike
  12. good for you. If you don't mind,how deep were you and how fast were you trolling. Reason I ask is the fish I've found were in 20 to 28 ft. of water,wondering how you got that jig deep enough. I've gone to using dipsy divers and tadpoles to get the smaller baits deep. Thanks Mike
  13. For me it would be for the knowledge,but dealing with the public there will be those that will be unhappy if don't put them on fish.I had a guide service in Alaska fishing for Salmon and Trout on a couple of rivers and I always felt the pressure to perform,also I was responsible for their safety and that added a little pressure.Of course,fishing down here is a diff. situation,you won't have to worry about a bear eating your clients before you get paid. I started fishing for Walleyes on lake Erie and did what I thought was pretty good ,although I never had a 40 or 50 fish day. They were a lot easier to catch there. Fishing these corps lakes is a whole diff game from what I've done.As I'm getting older I would go just for the knowledge and would be picking your brain to take a shortcut learning how to fish these lakes.Also I'm not very bright and need all the help I can get. Thanks again for sharing with us here. Mike also what mocarp said

    Finally

    Was wondering where you had been.Glad you got to go and catch some. I Just spent 3 days around Ruark Bluff.and the flats and points north of Mutton creek. 3 walleye 2 shorts and 1 -20" keeper. Caught all on #7 flickers in 15 feet of water between 12 and 2 o'clock,bright sun Fished all depths from 10 to 35 feet bottom bouncing and trolling.No joy. Tried about everything I could think of,fun but a little frustrating not being able to figure them out.You never fail to amaze me. Mike
  15. Nice,Thanks for sharing
  16. Good for you. I'll prob. try Binks spoons ,I've had pretty good luck with them.I have a hard time keeping the jigging raps from tangling with the treble hook .Might take the treble off and try them. As always enjoy your reports,Thanks for sharing,Mike

Heading up Sun. for a week,will be around Ruark again,I'll be in a older lowe with a Maroon top,would like to meet you.Stop and say hello if you get around that way. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge. Mike
