Fishing Report 8/5/11

Recommended Posts

The weather was pretty unstable with lightning & rain visable all morning in the distance and temperatures very pleasant & windy at times. We hooked a couple of keeper size walleyes on jigging spoons on points and bluff ends in the early AM. We switched over to B/B crawler rigs about mid morning and caught a few more keepers and shorts. The walleyes were staying tight to the bottom that day and the Spin N Glo only caught one keeper for us. a Colorado blade & half crawler seemed to be the better bait for us fished as close to the bottom as possible. We caught about 8-10 walleyes with 4 being keepers.

8/11/11 Fished out Tucker Hollow on flat across from where they are cutting the side out of the Hill. Total catch: 6 walleyes, 13 bull bluegills, 1 yellow perch. The first 4 walleyes were keeper (19, 23, 19,18), then it thundered!!, lightning!!!! and rain! and the fishing went down hill. First walleye was at 36', the other 3 was 39'-40' all on the "Slow Death" with full crawler except for a about 1/4 inch cut off so some on the juices would flow. The last 2 walleyes (16, 17) came later in the afternoon at 26', being cloudy all day and could no longer get the deeper bite we moved shallow just out side the brush line. The fishing was really good (Not HOT), but the catching really slowed down after the thunder & lightning went thru. Water temp 89 degrees. The photo is "Buffy" with the 23 incher (4 lb. 5 oz.), you can see the cut hill and the storm in the horizon in the background.
