    Walleye on Bull Shoals

    Started off early this morning with a buddy, launching the boat at 5 am. Headed down the lake for a sit in the woods. On the walk in, we jumped 8 deer, so I did not think we would have a chance of seeing another. That was ok with me, because I was hoping for a chance at turkeys. Just after shooting time, I could hear a turkey behind me about 75-100 yards up in the roost. After that I heard one to my left fly down. About that time a giant murder of crows flew in raising all kinds of ruckus, flushing the still roosted turkey off in another direction. I could see my buddy's ground blind from where I was at and apperrently he had deer skirting the limits of his shooting range all morning. About 10:30 we gave up on the hunt and changed gears to chasing walleye. Good move on out part! We had rigs in the water about 10 minutes when we caught the first keeper. We kept trolling the flats from just below K Dock to almost Snapp. Had 3 different areas we picked up walleye in 20-27 feet of water. Tried one long run back down the lake and again picked up walleye in the same 3 areas. Decided to concentrate on the 2 most productive of the 3 and that was w the flat just above K Dock and the one just across and below K Dock. Trolled 1.9-2.3 mph depending on if we were in 20 feet of water (1.9) or 27 feet(2.3). Had enough line out with 3 ounce bottom bouncers to hit the bottom ever few seconds. We averaged 1 short for ever keeper we caught and had a welcomed bonus of a 13 inch crappie. Did not catch any of the stinking bass which was awesome! Only target species today. Ended up with 2 limits of keeper walleye and 8 shorts in 5 hours of fishing. Great day filled with adventure and good company! Oh, and got to meet Paco while taking out. Lots of fun chatting with you!
  2. Not long ago, I posted about walleye night-crawler harnesses that I had made during a "snow day" holiday from teaching. Several questions were asked. I decided to write this article as a show and tell to encourage anglers who are unfamiliar with the method of fishing to take it up and make their own harnesses. Because I am accustomed to posting about recipes and cooking, I will format this article as if we were making chili. Ingredients high quality monofilament or fluorocarbon line, 10 or 12# test 1/2 to 5/8 inch barrel swivels size 1 or 2 J bend offset worm hooks bobber stops size 1 or 2 super death hooks 1.5 inch Macks Smile blades small swivels float beads size 3 or 4 Indiana, Colorado, Royal, or Willow blades in various metallic or bright colors folded clevises or quick change clevises Methods Chuck's Standard Tablerock Harness Using a Palomar knot, tie the tag end of the spooled line to the J bend worm hook. Snug it down and cut off the tag end, leaving about 1/8th inch above the knot to serve as a worm holder. Hold the hook in one hand and the spool in the other and extend your arms to about 4 feet across. Cut the line at the spool. Thread the new tag end through the bobber stop loop about 4 inches and slide the stop off the loop onto your line. The bobber stop serves to keep the float and blade from pushing down and bunching the worm nose. Move the stop down to within 1 inch or so of the hook knot. Thread the line through the 1.25 inch torpedo float bead of your color choice. (Alternatively use 4 or 5 spherical float beads or 2 or 3 elliptical float beads.) Thread the line through one hard plastic bead. (Note: I use either fluorescent yellow or fluorescent red for all my harnesses.) Put your blade on a folded metal clevis and thread the line through both loops. Be sure the cup of the blade faces the hook. If using a quick change clevis, be sure the C shape is toward the hook and the opening toward the front. Thread the line through a second bead. The first bead on serves to keep the clevis from binding on the float. The last bead on helps prevent moss and leaves from fouling the easy spin of the blade. Holding the components snug against the bobber stop, measure three feet of line from the rigging. Using another Palomar knot, tie on a crane swivel at that point. I store the harnesses wrapped around pool noodles by inserting a nail through the swivel loop and wrapping the harness until I can use the hook point to secure the rig. The Smiling Slow Death Attach your super death or slow death hook to a small swivel. As with Chuck's rig, attach the swivel to the line with a Palomar knot and measure off four+ feet of line. No bobber stop will be necessary, so thread the line through your chosen float beads. Thread the line through one hard plastic bead. Thread the line through a 1.25 or1.9 inch smile blade, back to front. Do not put a bead in front of the smile blade. It restricts the spin of the blade. Snug the rigging to the hook and measure 3 feet of line. Attach the barrel swivel at that point with another Palomar knot. Good luck!

  4. We have several professional lure makers on this forum and several more for whom lure making is a side business or a semi profitable hobby. I don't make lures for money - although I have been known to give them away. What I make are things I cannot buy; things like the customized Top Dollars I had Hughsey paint and then attached Death Trap hooks with the rear hook feathered the way I wanted it. See my avatar. For walleye, the only way I can get the crawler harnesses that Chuck (RIP) taught me to use is to make them. I thought I would show off todays "snow day" creations.

    Stockton Lake Walleye

    Here goes. I have fished Stockton Lake for many years. Just love this lake for its beautiful water and lack of traffic. I can get to the lake in under 30 minutes from my house. Walleye. I know they are there. I can feel there presence. I do catch a few, randomly. I want to catch them on a more consistent basis. Like most, I can catch more in the spring while crappie fishing. However, when the waters warm, and I assume them move deeper (over 20 feet) it ends for me. I can jig crawlers for hours off points, near bluffs, flats, constantly fighting wind and waves to keep my boat where I think I should. Nothing. Ever. A catfish here and there, perch nibbling like crazy, even the occasional smallmouth. Don't get me wrong, these fish are just fine. But they are NOT walleye. Trolling? Oh yea. Then I catch Drum. Lots of Drum. Sometimes BIG drum, but the are NOT walleye. I have fished canada and caught hundreds, maybe thousands of walleye. So I do have a clue, just not on Stockton. All this said, I do enjoy my time on the lake slowly drifting and thinking of the day when a walleye actually bites. Way back in 2005 I actually caught 5 walleye in one day. Fluke. I havent caught one since. Do the math, that's 5 years. I don't get out all that often, but still, 5 years is one long dry spell. Now I am not asking for anyones "honey hole", but throw me a bone. Above 215 Bridge or below? Point B2? B6? Thanks for your time, and good fishing. -DBo-
  6. UV reflective clear coat may give fishermen the edge. Try spraying your lures with this and see if it works. Studies on wind turbines show that birds see UV rays at 320 to 400nm. We see UV at 400 to 700nm. Birds with vivid colors reflect more UV to attract mates. What do you think? Good Luck WillCFish
