Walleyes 17th - 18th

Recommended Posts

Over the two days picked up 6 keepers and numerous (20 a day or so) sub legal. All of the smalls were 12 to 14.5". Lots of boats. 

No big fish... Biggest was 17"

They were a bit moody from the storms I think.  

Most if not all were caught trolling in 18 to 25 fow.  Could not find numbers on the flats.  Tried bouncing the above depth and they would not touch them... Wanted trolled a bit fast. 

Anyone else care to share some non-location specifics? 

Also got to meet T-Byrd and his dad... Good folks.  

No fish pics... But a nice sunset this evening.

Only made it on Saturday afternoon. One short and what I believe was another that I only caught a glimpse of.

The crappie were cooperating much better, brought a few of those home for dinner.

Pulling crankbaits, fooled around with BBs some too, but after getting hung for the third time and breaking a rod I went back to cranking.

For me, they always seems to slow down some when a full moon is near, I have not been having nearly as much success as I was 2-3 weeks ago.

This was on a flat, little sac arm. 16-20 feet.

I found a few shorts in the 15-18 foot range on Saturday morning, but looked like a drowned rat.  No keepers for me.  I can't seem to figure out what color they want now.  It was pink, but on Saturday I only caught them on a Bandit with chartreuse and a Flicker Minnow with a hint of purple.  I was trolling 1.8 mph.  Did you find any particular colors that worked?  Also, what speed were you trolling?

Thanks!

Dark purple Wally Diver when it was overcast... Shiney silver and purple Flicker Shad... 

We were trolling 2.5 to 3.22

I almost broke a rod tonight... Turning in 36 foot of water and BAM rod bends almost to the boat and my line breaks at a knot I was too lazy to cut out... Whatever it was had to be huge.  There was no timber where I was at...

Thanks - it sounds like I need to speed up and need to try/buy some more colors and more crankbaits.   :-)
