Tried for the walleyes on Sat. morn. Got out early but I didn't have any luck. I am a novice for the 'eyes so I don't know if I was skunked because of me or the fish not biting. I got a couple small northern and a few nice sunnies though. The wind and temp picked up by 10:30 so I headed in.

It has been very hot Portage ,which drives them deeper. If you have elecronics and are able to mark fish in 14 to 30 feet of water on the bottom or close to it chances are they could be walleyes. Slip bobber them with a #6 hook & a leech or minnow or crawler. You could drift over on windy days or backtroll slowly at .5 to 1 mile an hour.Use 4-8 foot snells.The eyes move off of the 1st area just off of the shallows to feed,when it gets hot they move to the next deeper part of the break.that is about 14-18 feet depending on the lakes structure.

I was graphing fish in 16-18 ft close to the bottom on the gravel/sand areas. I was drifting with a leech on a #4 red gamagatsu. My snell was about 36". After I saw where the fish were I used my electric motor to stay as close to 17ft as possible. I got some bites and one fish got off. I figured probably walleye, but who knows. I am going to start trying some different presentations. I picked up a bottom bouncer weight today with some beaded snells with spinners. If that doesn't produce I will try crankbaits. My buddy is taking me out on the St. Croix (by Stillwater) this weekend. He does pretty well, so hopefully he can get me on some fish.

If ya had a chance to catch In-Fisherman tonight on 'Monday Night Fishing' on the Outdoor Channel.. they did a whole show on crankbaits .. for salmon, walley, and largemouth bass. The main point of the walleye segment is that people are neglecting tail dancing deep divers for large deep walleye.



Even a BAD day of fishing is better than a good day of work; paydays excluded!
