Fishing With Steve

From Captain Juls: Yesterday, March 12th, I took the new Ranger/300 G2 for it's inaugural test run, before taking any customers out. My friend, Steve, and I hit the launch at Mazurik's at 7:30am and headed out. There was sunshine at the docks, but as we headed west towards Mouse Island, the fog got thicker and thicker, until we were moving at just above an idle speed. I put the navigation lights in, to help others see my rig, so they wouldn't run into me. I was amazed how many other boats didn't do the same. We set lines just west of the ferry crossing, so we didn't have to worry about getting hit by the ferry as she moved back and forth from Catawba to South Bass Island, since we couldn't see further than 25 yards at the most. Our program started out with Perfect 10's run 20/20 and 30/30 with a 1oz snap weight, and Deep Husky Jerks 50-65 back behind Off Shore planer boards, at a speed of 1.0-1.2mph.   We picked up three fish there. Then, as the fog began to diss ...

NEW IN THE TACKLE STORE: Michigan Stinger Scorpion Spoon Harness Combination

      The Michigan Singer  Scorpion spoon harness is rigged to add both the properties of fishing with a spoon, and a crawler harness.  The harness is snelled and crimped using a 13 pound test coated wire with VMC hooks.  Originally, this method was created on Saginaw Bay to troll for walleye.  As water temperatures warm up, this presentation allows you to troll faster.  The combination of spoon and harness has proved to be an extremely effective tactic.  The reason is because you can now troll a crawler at over 2 miles per hour and still get the attention of a fish that wants to eat a crawler. Michigan Stinger Scorpion Spoons come in several plating styles, silver hammered, smooth silver, hammered copper, smooth copper, and UV finishes. The finishes are designated as follows: SH - Silver Hammered S - Smooth Silver CH - Copper Hammered C - Smooth Copper UV - Ultra Violet  Not every spoon comes in every plating ...

Walleye, Walleye and More Walleye

Community.Walleye.Com Post of the Day
From Prkr314

Left out of Mazurik's yesterday (November 16th), did a lap around Kelly's with no results. Moved to the south passage and found a ton of fish, but only managed to hook up 9 times/landed 5. Running 60 back at 1.4 seemed to be the best setup. Nice 3lb fish stomachs gorged with shad.

Captain Juls: Fishing with Bill and Ryan Quinn 4/28/15

Fishing with Bill and Ryan Quinn 4/28/15 I had high hopes for today's fishing trip with the Quinn men. They came to town on Saturday night and fished Sunday and Monday in an area I marked on a map for them Sunday morning over coffee and JT's Cafe doughnuts. I told them the program I had been running previously, and they went out and managed a limit each day. They had a lot of fun, and said it was the best walleye fishing they've experienced...ever. Ryan caught one over 30 that he's having mounted, unless he gets another one that's bigger by the end of the week. They fish the co angler side of the Pro/Am walleye tournaments...and, they fish Green Bay, Lake Michigan, Winnebago, and many other large bodies of water in Wisconsin and across the country. They are not novice anglers by any means. Today, I felt like one though... Ugh! It was tough today! We launched at 8:30 at Mazurik's and headed to where they had been fishing the past couple of days and made a couple passes, before ...

Fishing with Phil, Joe, and Jason 4/24/15

  Fishing with Phil, Joe, and Jason 4/24/15 First, let me apologize for the lateness of this blog entry. I got distracted with a lot of little odds and ends work that needed to get done, and by the time I looked at the clock, it was bedtime.  Anyway, the bite was slow for us yesterday. We started out from Mazurik's and headed to the NW corner of Kelly's. We set up on the line I had fish on before this blow and picked up three fish, by the time we finished that pass.  Everyone on the radio was mentioning how slow it was for them, and struggling to figure out how to make them bite.  I figured it would be an afternoon bite, once the water came up a degree or two with the high sunshine yesterday. And, from what I heard, that happened for those in the right areas. The water temps last Saturday were in the high 40's....and yesterday, it was back down to 45.8 where we were, so it dropped a few degrees with this cold front that is passing through this week.  We were runni ...

Fishing with Captain Juls: Ken Braho and Family 4/18/15

Fishing with Captain Juls Fishing with Ken Braho and Family 4/18/15 Part two of a one day/two trip adventure.... Ken, Amy, and Tyler had jumped in my boat for the second round of fishing yesterday. They have never trolled with inline planer boards before, so it was a quick lesson setting the baits out with the snap weights and Off Shore boards. Ken's son Tyler caught on very quickly, and was left to set lines on his side of the boat while I showed Ken and Amy how to do it on their side of the boat. As usual, women only have to be told once how to do something, and Amy had it down pat. Ken, on the other hand, who I would find to be very entertaining throughout the day, needed a more watchful eye. lol (I say that in jest....he did just fine, but was fun to pick on, because he was picking on me!) I don't need to tell you the program, because after a successful first trip in the morning, we didn't change anything. We headed right back to the NW corner of Kelly's and set up. We picked u ...

      Lake Erie ice anglers beware; sleeping giant has one eye open Much of Lake Erie is still covered with ice, but the NOAA Coast Watch satellite imagery from Monday shows a large area of open water on the west end of the big lake.
