Fishing with Dan, Matt, and Ryan 7/5/17

Fishing with Dan, Matt, and Ryan 7/5/17 By Captain Juls with Juls Walleye Fishing Adventures Dan Bishop and his two sons, Ryan and Matt, are staying at the campground right down the street from me, so they met me in my driveway this morning at 4:30. We headed to Big Bopper's for some breakfast, before hitting Hi Way Bait and Tackle for some ice. I also loaded up on some of the good colors of Skipper 9 perch rigs, since the fella that used to make them has passed away, and I'm too lazy to figure out how he tied them. We launched out of Mazurik's at 6am and headed east of Kelly's for the morning. I had the rods all rigged up with 2oz inline weights with crawler harnesses that I tied up with (1) #4 Octopus Hook, (1) #6 treble hook, (8) 8mm beads, a quick change clevis from DutchFork.com, and some #5 and #6 Colorado blades with copper hammered backs, anti freeze backs, and pink antifreeze backs. We pulled those in 38 foot of water at 40, 45, 47, 51, 57, 65, 75, and 85 back a ...

Fishing with Mike, Trayton, and "Pops" 6/21/17

Fishing with Mike, Trayton, and "Pops" 6/21/17 I left the house at 4:30 this morning, so I could stop and get ice, and gas up, before hitting Mazurik's by 5am. Well, when I was half way through town I realized that I had forgotten my 10 dozen crawlers, sitting on my kitchen table...ugh. I made a quick stop at Hi Way Bait, who open at 5am now...thankfully, and bought 10 more dozen, so I didn't have to drive all the way home to get them. The air conditioning was on, so I figured they would last until I got home to put them back in the fridge. The arrangement was to meet my crew at Mazurik's at 5:30am this morning, but a little after 5am, Mike sent a text saying, "We're at Bopper's if you care to join us". But, since I was already getting the boat ready, I said, "I'm at the ramp getting things ready, take your time and enjoy!" And, continued to get things situated to my liking. Mike sent me another text asking me if they could bring me some breakfast, so I took him up on that off ...

Fishing with the Parker Brothers Randy, Jim, and Dick 6/9/17

Fishing with the Parker Brothers Randy, Jim, and Dick 6/9/17 I arrived at Mazurik's at 5am. The remnants of a full moon lit up the parking lot, pushing away the darkness. My crew was supposed to meet me there at 5:15, but they were early too. Yay! The sky starts getting light enough to see by 5:15 now...and, by 5:30AM it's almost light enough to not need the running lights lit up on the boat. With a 5-10mph SSW wind, we headed north out of Mazurik's to the area between the Bass Islands, Middle Island, and Kelly's Island...to look for a starting point. I set the Ranger down off plane, to take a picture of the sunrise...and, look for good fish marks on the Humminbird. After finding some decent marks, we started to set up. Randy has fished for Bass all his life, and had contacted me a little while ago to set this trip up as a "learning" trip. He wanted to learn how to troll successfully for walleye. He went out and bought a used Ranger 621, and all the trolling equipment he th ...

And, so it Begins...Fishing in February...:)

And, so it Begins...Fishing in February...:) Blog by Captain Juls of  www.julswalleyefishingadventures.com Feb 23rd, 2017 Thanks to the generosity of my friend, Scott Bogen, for lending me his Ranger 621 until my new 621 shows up at the end of March, I was able to get out fishing a few times since last weekend. Scott and I fished this past Sunday and Monday. On Sunday, we went out of Catawba to see if the girls were moving into the area yet. While we marked some good fish, we were unable to get any to bite for us in the first 6 hours of hunting. We were all over the west side that morning, and didn't find any willing to bite until we moved into shallower water...around 20-21 feet. We pulled Smithwick Perfect 10's, Bandits, and Deep Husky Jerks. We only caught 3 fish that afternoon on Bandits, up high in the water column....25 back on gold chrome colors. The stock colors of Black/Gold and Copper Clown produced for us. We probably would have caught a limit had we not found them ...

Fishing wih Ben and Mike

      Posted by http://community.walleye.com member Juls It's been a while since I blogged, so I thought since I had some free time after today's trip, that I would share today's trip with you. I didn't have to meet my crew at Catawba State Park until 6:45, so I made some brownies at 4am....by the way, the house wafting of chocolate is a pleasant way to wake up! I loaded the boat with the perch cooler and other things, and left the house at 5:20. I made a few phone calls looking for shiners, but all I was told that anyone had was Goldies, so I pulled into Hi Way bait for minnows and ice. I grabbed a breakfast sandwich from Big Bopper's and headed down to the ramp a little early....a 1/2 hour to be exact. So, after readying the boat for launching, I sat in the quiet Monday morning park and enjoyed that sandwich. My crew of Ben Welch, and his friend Mike, showed up right on time at 6:45, so we were on the water, and headed out by 7am. Our plan was to start ...

Fishing with Greg, Shane, and Adam 3/30/16

      From Captain Juls: Fishing with Greg, Shane, and Adam 3/30/16 I hadn't been out since last Tuesday, before the blow, and I was a little apprehensive about what kind of bite it would be after the winds we just had. Wednesday the winds were out of the SW with gusts blowing 35-50mph, and Thursday, the same, but at 25-35mph. I wasn't worried about that wind direction muddying things up, since it was an offshore wind. It was the Friday/Friday night winds out of the NE that I was worried about. I figured it would bring in the colder water from the east, and muddy up the inside, by the cans where we had been doing well earlier in the week. Our original plan this morning was to check the weather at 9am and head out at 11am. Well, I got a little any, and decided to take a drive around the point, to see what the waves were doing. Windsurf had shown it laying down a little more than the forecast I looked at the night before. The ride around the Cliffs showed that th ...

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 ...
