Small lake walleye suprise

Recommended Posts

4:00pm text to Joey: Wanna go fishing?

4:05pm text to me: Yes

4:30pm pickup

4:55pm launch


We decided to decipher another tiny lake with our best pal sportspal and try out for some largemouth bass. It was a windy night so we headed for a sheltered area with plenty of emergent vegetation and began casting top water. With no signs of top water hits, or surfacing fish we slowed things down and I hooked into a decent Largie using a slammer on dropshot.




The iceth, was brokeneth....but the action slowed down for bass. Twenty minutes later Joey, with his trusty wacky worm, casted right on bullseye and got a nice hit.

At first it was a good bass.

Then it was a huge pike.

Then it was a huge walleye.










23.5". We were both in complete shock as we were unaware that there were any walleye in the lake at all. Elated, we carried on and felt a few decent hits and only one more fish landed.






Had we stayed until dusk, the action would have picked up but he had work duties and I was ready to pack it in.... having no seats in the canoe is a real pain in the asshat.gif , quite literally.


Gotta love small lakes!!!

      Hi there! Looks like a great year for walleye fishing and Erie is one of the best places to go for them . Been lately on a few occasions my buddies and we limit by noon every single time . It didn't matter if it was wavy or still, trolling was the ticket. We had several double header, even a few triple headers... Cheers! Gino

    • Workin' Down @ The Lake

      I'm currently on week 2 of my extended summer vacation and have been hard on getting some cabin building done. First thing needed was a dry, shady and bug free zone to chillax in when the working was done.   Threw up this temporary shack in a weekend.   Now onto the cabin building segment. Took a lot longer than expected to layout the foundation. Drilled 1/4" holes in the granite to drop my nails into to run my string lines.   Then it was time to dri

    • Kingston area eastern Lake Ontario salmon/trout fishing

      I used to run 27' boat out of Whitby trolling for Lake Ontario salmon and rainbow trout each summer, and I have been missing it. I moved just north of Kingston a dozen years ago and have concentrated on back lakes bass since then. When I was in Whitby, I could tell you exactly what week the salmon would appear, in what locations and at what depth the best fishing would be. Seldom got skunked if the fish were around. I am thinking of upgrading my 14' tin boat to something that could han
