Weekend Walleye

6 10 2020

After a week’s worth of west winds I decided to give the walleye a shot Friday night. I was not disappointed. Got on the water at 6:30 pm. Water was clear and the weeds were at a minimum. One hour later I had 6 in the cooler with all the fish coming on my 40 foot lead and a #11 Bleeding Blue Shad. Water temp was 60 degrees.

Went back out again Saturday night for what I hoped would be a repeat. Started at 6:30 pm but I was delayed an hour. I spotted a boat paddling upstream so I pulled up and gave them a tow back to Elizabeth Park. After I dropped them off and got down to business. Water was still clear but the weeds were everywhere. I ended up getting my 6 fish limit but it took a few hours. Also lost 6 and threw back 6 that were too small. Caught the majority of the fish on my kicker with a #9 Bleeding Olive Rapala. Soem of the fish also had y.o.y. perch in their stomachs about the size of a #9 Rapala.

Sorry, no pictures. WordPress changed their posting format and I can no longer post any pictures. Probably have to pay a fee to do that now. If that’s the case this will be my last post.

Hey Mark that’s a bummer about their changes. I check your blogs quite often to see how the waters are producing. Sometimes just to catch a glimpse of fish coming out of the waters I’ve fished for many years, and some waters I’ll never get to fish. I hope its not your last post

Oh no! What happened that you can’t post pictures? The theme is out of date?

No idea. They changed to a block paragraph posting and there is not option to post pictures. I’m not paying user so they are probably doing this to get me to sign up for their premium services. Not gonna do it.
