Fishing, For Most, Continues To Be Good

Walleye fishing slowed a bit over the weekend, probably for a couple of reasons.  First, there was quite a bit of boat traffic and second, water levels continue to drop.  A third factor is that water temperatures have dropped to the point where the water does not continue to hold the small particles well, therefore, it is much clearer.  Put all those things together in one short time frame, and you’ve got a bit slower bite.  Still, there are plenty of fish to be caught and those who find the right spot will catch a bunch of fish.
One thing I hear a lot of people say, is to add a stinger hook for light biting fish.  Folks, let me tell you that on some days, it can actually keep you from getting hits.  What you need to learn to do is use jigs with long shank hooks.  Lindy Max Gaps are a good example.  Hook the bait by going through the minnows mouth and out behind his head, right next to the spine.  It puts the hook back in the strike zone and presents the bait in a very natural manner.
Wave if you see me out there and good luck.   More updates to the main web site, outdoor pages, video and more VERY soon.

  1. Fishing was tuff this weekend. It will only get better. I did much better the week before. Excellent point about where to hook a minnow. It works great for me.

  2. Thank you for your comments and for visiting Wolf River Country.Com I’m sure the bite will pick up and probably be the best right before ice up.
