Wack and Stack...take 3

The last few days have reminded me why I'm so lucky to live on such a super walleye lake.  We have been pulling Reef Runner's a little deeper than normal, but things are starting to change a lot. Look for us to put the smack down on some real giants in the next few days!!!

Watch out walleyes...we got your poison!

Had an awesome day pulling Reef Runners.  Managed more than 20 walleyes over 7lbs...with a couple bruisers mixed in!  One was so aggressive he came at me after doing laps in the livewell for a hour or so.  A handful of dates are still left for the prime fall bite, holla if you're interested.

The Big Girls are Back and Hungry

Switched gears slightly and went back to the old reliable Silver Streak spinners. Apparently the walleyes thought they were candy, as we caught a lot of fish....and big ones!  The fall bite is definitely in swing and will only get better if the weather stays decent. This weekend is suppose to blow like a hurricane, but the southerly direction shouldn't make recovery a week long affair.

As good as the bite was, color made all the difference.  Five out of the six lines ended up with the same Silver Streak Pattern, the sixth was a experimental that never caught them like the "go to" color.  Hard to believe on such a strong bite that color makes such a difference.

Spent the day speed trolling Reef Runner's with a couple buddies.  While its not exactly time to put away the spinners, the cranks are getting better each and everyday.  I'm really looking forward to the fall bite kicking off.  A look at this pic and you might be able to argue that it already has.
