Grand Eyes

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I don't post here much, but I read the forums a lot. Anyway I just wanted to share a picture of the first walleye of my life that I caught today.

 

We were out trolling on the grand river today the bite wasn't too hot it's always fun catching the cats out of there my friend Jay caught a 19 pounder and of course we forgot the net, the bugger was tough to get in the boat, and when we finally did he crapped all over the carpet haha. Count for the day is 3 cats for the boat, a big sheepshead and 2 walleyes caught by yours truly. Also want to add that the Conservation officers were out on the boat, they checked out licenses, checked out what we had in the livewells, and even gave us a couple tips. Good to see them out there checking everyone out!

 

Thanks for reading guys.

The first walleye (pickerel) is always the hardest one...now that your almost a expert walleye fisherman catching them will get easier....at least that's what I keep telling myself... :wallbash:

    • Eyes and Pike!?

      Hey guys,  The GF and I are heading up this weekend to visit her dad for Father’s Day and hoping to get some fishing in. He’s on a lake connected to Glouster Pool on the lower end. Would like to try for walleye and pike in the Gpool but haven’t been able to find any good info. Should we fish Gpool or would we be better off fishing Little Lake? Any info would be helpful. Thanks.

    • Shallow or Deep for those eyes?

      Water levels have dropped 6 inches in the last week on Pigeon. Still 12 inches above summer levels.  Season opens Saturday. I always struggle in May.  The June pattern of rip jigging weeds doesn’t work for me early season.  What’s your approach going to be?

      Hey guys,   Was at PAB for a few days last week with a few others for my first real outing this season. Weather was good first day was over 30 degrees and the the remaining days I don't think broke 20 with cold nights. We caught some good fish, one being a 4LB 14Oz smallie and another was 3LB 13Oz. Caught a few decent pike trolling for musky biggest being just shy of 37inches and a few others around the 30" mark and many other small guys. However they were no musky caught this trip sad

    • My Grand River experince

      It would seem I picked a day where rain fell hard over night in Fergus. Arrived to dirty water and green clumps of bottom growth floating down the river.  This river system is huge and fish could be anywhere. Looked up and down the river deciding on  a spot to try first. I see a nice spot where there a split. Start walking across and oops, man down. LOL Gather myself and get to my first rip. A beaded barbless nymph under an indicator, was my set up.  Third drift and fish on. Then off,just as qui
