A walleye report for lmt out 4/17


Bird Watcher

Recommended Posts

Ended up fishing in the same spot as the walleye legend himself, lmt out,  last Sunday 4/16.  In a quick chat he mentioned OA and putting reports up.  I haven't put one up in years so this one is for you lmt out!

Had Yesterday off, planned to go Turkey Hunting in the am, but my precious baby girls had other plans when they kept us up all night.  Momma and her two minions were pretty grumpy so I hung around the house to help the morning get back on schedule.  After all of that was taken care of, what to do with my day off?  Walleye are biting.  Might as well go to Stockton.

Report: Went back yesterday 4/17 and it was a lot different bite.  The fish were 9-12' deep and very slow.  We ended up with 11 keepers, but it seemed a lot slower than that. We fished everything that we've been fishing the last two weeks and had 1 keeper.  We finally bailed on fishing history and located them on a main lake point with our electronics but it was hard to get them to commit to the BB and harness.  Ended up catch half of them vertically jigging our bottom bouncers and spinners on the turn at the end of each pass. Probably should have switched to a spoon or a jig and crawler, maybe even a 110+ jerkbait to get that reaction bite.  Oh well, what we did worked, but it felt a lot more like work.lol

25 keepers in 4 trips.  It seems like this is the year that the intensive walleye stockings are starting to pay off.

Haha. Walleye legend my, you know what. Lol. Not even close there r a bunch of great walleye fisherman on here that I have learned from.  And we r lucky enough to put a few in the boat on occasion.  We really enjoyed fishing next to bird watcher and his fishing buddy.  Very nice gentlemen.  My wife and I both made the comment on how considerate they were.  You could tell If You thought you were making us move off of the line we were fishing you  would move so you were not in impending us and that is something very rare.  I hope you felt that we were just as accomodating.  At least we were trying to be. Lol. Very good report looks like you worked and made a difficult day into a really good One.  You r gonna have to show me what you mean by jigging your bottom bouncer on the turns.  Hope to run into you again.

Sweet something new again ! Careful there is something about walleye fishing that makes a guy want to set meaningless goals for himself. Don't let it happen to you.

Lol,  hang around here long enough and it just seems like anything I would have to say interesting has already been said.  That and I mostly look at the site on my phone.  my free time for forum browsing rarely comes on the laptop in the living room like the old days and its hard to get these fat fingers to type legibly on the iPhone.

I hear ya.  15-20 years ago I spent I don't know how many nights between crabtree and the dam trying to catch "a" walleye...uno,   lol.  Nowadays I fill that niche with Stripers...you wanna talk about a waste of time and money on meaningless goals...I have enjoyed following your journey though.  I'm glad you got it done.
