we had another fun outing. 86 degrees and a 12-15mph wind from the south. not ideal for walleye, but we wanted to get some dinner. I got a new fish breading recipe I want to try. if it's as good as it sounds, i'll post it


here are the results: a shoe, 2 clams, a stripe bass, a 26" sheephead(I wish I had a scale. it was huge and put up a 5 minute fight) 3 short walleyes and 2 eaters(16-17". perfect for a meal)

brenda called it and started heckling my ability to provide for the family. @--0--0105 i said we will get one in the next 50 yards or let the lone wallye go. right then, i hooked the sheepehead. that was fun. i put on another crawler and whammo. another walleye. i did my best pro bass fisherman impression. hooting and hollering and beating my chest. brenda thought it was pretty funny. it was payback for the heckling.  @--0--0105 another boat just gave us a goofy look. what the heck, if you can't have fun why are you alive? it was the last minute meal saver @--0--0105

6/13/19 what a night! the first thing I caught was a frabil power catch net. I believe they are about $200. it came up from 20' on 6# pline. man it was heavy since it was full of water. the next thing i caught was a custom color crankbait. i was on a roll!


 the gravel lizards were hungry at first. i caught 9 shorts, a smallie and 2 keepers(17",18") that was in 2 hours then nothing


the no wake is finally lifted! it was like the ocean out there. the tuna boats were cranking. it's a good thing i have a good stomach because it was rocky and roling out there. summer is officially here

Sorry to hear your peaceful waters are gone but I'm really happy to see the river start to drop.  Has been a tough spring for anyone trying to make a living close to the Mississippi.  Enjoy that new net Yari!

I took off at 3:00 today. I had 2 in the box in 1/2 hour. that's all I wanted for dinner tomorrow. I let go 2 bigs(20,21") 7 shorts, 6 sunnies, 5 rock bass, 2 perch, 5 smallies, and a sheephead. It was a typical 'summer bite'. lots of fish, but not exactly what you are looking for. it's always fun feeding the fish


I got spoiled early w/ a solid walleye bite and not much else stealing bait.

Sounds pretty good Yari!  Are you throwing artificials, dragging nightcrawlers on a drop shot, or ??? 

Will be curious to see how the fish behave next week when I go up to Farm Island - haven't been able to get a lot of info yet from the other guys that will be up there.  Sounds like the water is a bit murky - not sure what the depth & weed situation is like.  Will hopefully have a good report to share in about a week.

dragging crawlers. they were spread out this time and had to cover water. i think i'll try spinner/crawler next time.

i would think spinner/crawler or leech near weed edges would work up there. if they are concentrated, jig them up. good luck

I really need to put the cam in the boat instead of just my wife's cell phone picks. we battled 10-15 mph wind and tuna boats today, but it was nice to get out. I talked to 4 other boats and no walleye, so I guess I did OK

5 walleye- 2 bigs(22,23- the 23 fought like a 7-8 pounder) 3 shorts

first kitty cat of the year, smallie, 2 perch, sheephead

it was slow, but nice to be out. it might be my last time out until after LOTW musky 7/5. cabin work hopefully next weekend weather permitting
