6 August on the Upper End. Oops, I Did It Again!


Recommended Posts

I love going out on the lake at daybreak!


I netted the first keeper walleye at my second stop about 6:45. The location was a timberline on an outside bend channel swing. 28 feet of water.

I lost a keeper on an inside bend flat edge about  8:00.

Then I ran down lake to the Rock Creek area, but I only caught bass and three short walleye.

I made one stop on the way back to the flat edge. No joy.

Back at the flat edge I moved out to the 35 foot range. I quickly caught  an 18.5 inch fish and stayed on the spot long enough to catch a 3.5 and 4 pound fish. I was back in my slip by 11:15.

All fish came on a 1 oz. white War Eagle spoon. I had 10 pound braid on the reel tied to a small swivel. From the swivel I ran 3 to 4 feet of 10 pound Yozuri Hybrid.

Windy with water around 83.

BTW, today was my last day meat hunting until all walleye is consumed. Even with the wife's love of walleye, I figure that will be around Thanksgiving.

Just as well, tomorrow I go back to work and will be weekends only from now until next May.

Does Buck Owens dress you in the morning?

My wife makes my light weight overall shorts. The one I am wearing here is an old model with a long zipper down the front. Now days she makes a more traditional model. She calls them my rompers. Trust me, nothing is more comfortable in the heat. However, with my shape and ugly old legs and feet, I will admit I do not look like Mike Iconelli.
