From my perspective being from another state I look at Minnesota DNR and I think they do a good job at protecting the quality of walleye fishing in MN. It least MN has a walleye season and have restrictions on different lakes. Come to South Dakota and we do not have a season and we have a general state wide restriction. 1 over 20". A walleye over 20" are hard to come by in a lot of waters in South Dakota. Lake Oahe is an exeption to that, but Minnesota fishing is by far the best fishing any fisherman could ask for. I make an annual trip to Mille Lacs to catch those bigger walleyes and I love that lake. I didn't want to ruffle any feathers, but my 2 cents is that Minnesota is a fishermans paradise.


I agree!

And that Mn. DNR history will make it tough for them to defend the Lake Mille Lacs scene as they answer in federal court this year.......

Egg on faces?

Have you tried putting your finger on the spool just before your bobber hits the water? Stopping the line from coming of the spool right at the end of the cast will generally straighten out the line before it hits the water and prevent tangles.

If you use multiple split shots under your bobber, it helps to put the lighter ones closer to the hook and the heaviest on top.

Hope this helps


Best answer of all! It's the only sure way to keep things, consistently, untangled during the cast and entering the water. I use my free hand to grab the line by the reel as the hook etc. is about 2-3 ft. from splashing down.

Exactly!!

Very interesting discussion that’s for sure. Mr Fellegy has a good point when he states. - why be committed of the crime before the crime is committed— (or something to that point)

It is almost impossible to do as is asked at a boat landing before leaving a lake.


Here's is my take from a few months ago on the subject. I hope to have TV camera's in place at the ramp in a few weeks after the weeds become a daily issue on the trailer etc., along with local CO's, and challenge the CO's to comply with , while at the ramp, to how the law reads. I want them to show me how I can comply, between the lake and my home. Hopefully they will bring rakes, a high pressure washer, a good sponge to get the left-over water out of the bilge (after the plug is pulled) and to soak up and dry the livewell, after it is drained:

http://www.startribune.com/sports/outdoors/blogs/113035194.html

Maybe the law makers who seem to be experienced enough at "boat ramp scenarios" to write law, can show me on film as well.

How is one to comply, while coming off the lake with a maze of other boats, at the 10 pm. curfew time, in the dark, as others wait in line? But as the law reads....after dealing with the crowded ramp issues in the dark, they can write you a ticket as you come to the lighted parking lot of your first stop to ice your fish. ON YOUR WAY HOME--NOT TO ANOTHER LAKE! WAKE UP ST. PAUL "EXPERTS"!!

Ottertail is or at least should be a good choice.

I use Power Pro 50# briaded line and 4/0 Owner worn hooks on several of my bass rods. I am experiencing what appears to be the line pulling through the "crack" where the eye meets the shank on the hook. I've lost several nice sized fish the past two years this way. The knot is still intact and the line has not broken, in fact the two loops that were around the eye are still visible and not broken. I've switched to the Palomar knot, which Power Pro shows in the literature that comes with the line, and I still have the problem. Anyone got any suggestions?


It might be the eye of the hook itself that is the problem but if you are ever around Lake Mille Lacs and want the knot lesson that will solve your issue....let me know.

Here is where I buy all of mine. You don't have to order large amounts as the prices are set with. ( a small service charge for smaller orders) Good quality stuff!! Good prices. Order amounts that will last years!And a good local company!

FYI--Lakeland makes a lot of the stuff the others sell.

Hey yall,
I live in Arkansas and rarely get a chance to fish for Walleye down here. One of those oppertunities just came up, and I was trying to get some ideas on stratagies.

Here are the conditions

Hydro-electric Damn River (Can be Flowing high, and hard, May not flow at all.)

Completely clear water.

Big Walleye moving up river to spawn (we catch and release)

The fish can be very big 10 pounds and up.

Water temp in the 50's


I consider yall walleye experts. What do you think?


Maybe be best asked and answered here:

Bobber? You mean to tell me after all these years, you have only been "stupid" enough to get caught once? LOL Heck, between Joe and I, I think we've come off by boat 3 times over the years--the last being about 10-12 years ago. I assume we've learned that 3 strikes and we're out--from now on. But then again, for a fish? Well? I HOPE we've learned!

The big danger isn't being on an ice flow. It's the first step off the edge of the ice into the boat that is "hairy". With waves lapping up and over that edge, it's hard to see and then step into a rocking small boat! LOL Real smart, huh?
