I went crappie fishing 3-4 times about a month ago. Have gone gill fishing prolly a dozen times in late may and june.  Normally keep about 20, as i dont like to clean more than that each time.  Have put 200 plus in the freezer, all males maybe 5-6 females snuck thru.  Most nights have caught 40-50 and kept just 20 or so.  Weather has neen so beautiful i have gone 3-4 nights a week. Nothing more fun than catching big slab male blugills n readear.  I use a 7 foot st croix pan fishing rod and it makes it even more fun.

Recently found out that walleye population on our lake has reached a healthy level.  Knowingly, jig/minnow combo is typically popular, but lake is quite shallow/weedy.  Not to mention an abundance of panfish.

I have seen a few YouTube vid's of people throwing lure's.

Question - Has anyone had success in throwing lure's for walleyes?  Shallow?  And if so, what has worked?

It is so peaceful here.  I don't fish, but can I just visit and enjoy the tranquility?

Rapala - Blue glass shad rap.

Rapala, short, jointed, color is lake dependent in my experience.

But in a weedy lake, you're going to be clearing hooks of weeds no matter what you run... which is why people are probably jigging.

I've had two guides on Tonka tell me that the best way to catch walleye is to fish for bass.  So jigs and plastics along the weed line.
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

I am taking my preteen kids camping in August to governor dodge state park. Has anyone fished there?  Wondering if it’s worth bringing the fishing rods and tackle. If so, any advice on what to fish for there?

Thanks.

I picked up a nice walleye this weekend under the dock in three feet of water while fishing for bass.

My personal favorite for walleye in the early evening into the night is a Rattlin rouge.  Made by smithwicks available online if nowhere else.  Anytime from dusk til midnight.  Use the shallow runners... ARA prefix... they run 6 inches or less.  Favorite color is Clown, silver body red head.  Out fish a rapala 3:1 in my experience

Heading back up to AK on Saturday for about 10 days. On Sunday one of our engineers is taking us out on Prince William Sound for halibut and ling cod. Tail end of the salmon run.
