Walleye 7/27

Recommended Posts

Put in a Roark about 7 am and started trolling the flats, nothing, not even a bite. Headed up around old state park and trolled the main lake points and some shollower bluffs. Caught 3 walleye, 2 drum and white bass. All in about 20-22 fow on shad colored cranks. The walleye bite was weird, never had one just hit the crank, all three that we caught came when we would hang the crankbait up on something and then as soon as we would get it unhung the fish would hit it.  Usually can't keep the 12-14 inch spots off the trolled cranks but we didn't catch a single bass all day. Left around 2 when the pleasure craft completely took over the lake. It looked like Table Rock on a holiday weekend so we headed for the truck.

All of the boat traffic surprises me.  I have been a few times during the week and the lake has almost been deserted.  I’m also surprised that you didn’t catch any bass.  Most of what I’ve been catching have been suspended though near the  surface.

I fished yesterday amd thought about you Dutch.  I was bottom bouncing on the flat when I caught about a 9 or 10 inch drum. Got it about 3 ft from lifting it into the boat, when all I saw was a mouth coming up from below. And a large mouth engulfed the drum and took off.  Ripping drag. I panicked and jerked it out of his mouth. It had to be 7 or 8 lbs at least.

Good job on the 3 walleye hunter.

I would liked to have seen that little episode.  That is the kind of thing that happens on Pom with those toothy critters they have down there.

No size, all were between 15-16 inches.

 

I have had Musky try to take fish away from me at Pomme but never had a bass do it. Would love to have seen that!

 

We have fished Stockton all my life and I have never seen the lake as busy as it was Saturday. Everything from 30+ foot Cigarette boats blasting by at high speed to the slow lumbering big houseboats. We agreed we would try avoid the weekends and fish during the week now that dad is retired.
