old school walleyes

Recommended Posts

Just a short report on a short outing. Got out last night from 6:30 to 8:30. Trolled cranks, looking for walleyes. I found a 100 yard stretch and caught 4 eyes, 2 just short & 2 keeps. also caught a 2#+ LM and a 3# catfish. I was happy with that for a 2 hour trip. Caught all fish in 15 to 20 fow. Tried several passes deeper with nothing. Trolled at 1-1.4 MPH. WT was 83.I only caught fish on passes against the breeze, none trolling with it.  What was interesting to see, was in a 4 bait spread, all the fish were caught on a Lazy Ike. I'm an old  yankee so I've used this lure my whole fishing life but never thought to use it here. I guess walleyes are walleyes. Going to try a classic floating Rapala next time out. Be well all.

Lazy Ike, definitely a blast from the past.  It and the Flatfish (similar to the Lazy Ike) were one of my pond fishing favorites as a kid.

Quill is right, it had a great wide wobble, even at slow speeds.

Caught some nice salmon(Kings) on Kwikfish in AK; have tried a few times trolling for walleye here with no joy to date.

Quick comment on the walleyes this year. Out last evening for 2 hrs. Tried a different area than last. Beaver continues to amaze me that in-coming rain/storms do not seem to have a positive effect on the fish activity.  Raining, yes I've had good bites while it is raining. But the pre frontal effect seems nil. Anyway only one fish last night but it was a nice 20" eye. Just my small sample but I have already caught more walleyes than all last year and they all seem fat & healthy. No so last year as most were scrawny. Have a safe 4th all and read up on Nike's latest.

Yakima (yakimabait.com) still makes the standard FlatFish up to the M60 size in more colors than a sane person would want.  The MagLip is the hot new series, and it does work, but so does the standard.  I'm planning on running the FlatFish I have on a three-way to see what I can catch.  I did well with that rig in New York on lake trout and rainbows, so I'm thinking white bass, green and brown fish and maybe crappie might be amenable.
