    Well I sacrificed a nice weekend of shooting all for my fellow WMCC shooters. Dale invited me along for some walleye fishing and I think we did pretty good.

    Here's some previews of what you will be eating at the fish fry.

    Here's a picture of the fish we caught for Steve Vv, Hook, Tim S, Rick S, and Todd. Well, there's always carp on sale at Meijers...hahahaha.

    Well the day was slow but we ended up getting them going Saturday. I guess Steve, the Schanz's, Hook and Todd can eat now.


    [​IMG]

    A nice 7 lb wally caught Saturday. Can you tell it was chilly?


    [​IMG]

    A couple of pigs from Saturday. Dale told me if I didn't smile he would just Photo Shop a big cheesy grin on my face.

    The man who makes it all possilbe. Ranger Dale himself.

    Sunday's average was a little better. I think Dale needs a bigger net!



    [​IMG]

    Much nicer weather today. Here's some nice pigs. Hope you guys are hungry!


    [​IMG]

    Okay, enough of the smiling crap! I promise, I was happy on the inside. Just before Dale took this picture I realized we had to clean all of these things!

    Todd,
    I know you are reading this. Don't you wish you went? LOL.

    See everyone at Allegan...unless the fish are biting.

    Doug,

    I not only bring joy to the lives of trapshooters but to walleye fishermen as well!

    As long as everyone's day is made when they pick on me I'm happy.

    Don't think the G-Loomis fly rod you have could have handled these pigs, lol.

    Shannon,

    That pick was taken about 5.5 miles out in front of Bessie. 28 feet of water. We were there for the jig bite but after 3 hours of wetting jigs on Saturday with no success we went for the troll bite. Glad we did.

    I usually look around at site's like indepthangling and Walleye Central.

    I just thought that i would look at Trapshooter's to keep my mind off the fact that i wasn't able to head out to Lake Erie as i had planned for this spring.
    Ordered a new Yar-Craft 219 with Mercury Verado and it won't be done for another week or two.

    What do a i see? a nice report on Erie with pics

    Nice job guys, maybe i will have to make the trip a little later in the season

    Gale,

    You still have a few weeks. It actually hasn't "really" started yet. It's getting better and better every day.

    See ya on the lake.

    Matt Ski

    P.S. Nice boat!

    Been away from Ohio for 12 years now, sure miss going after these guys (and especially eating them). Miss the wild sleepovers at Put-in-Bay too, but I'm too old for that stuff now. :)

    Should heat up when the water breaks over the 50-degree mark.

    Headed up there the next few weekends.

    Boards and Reef Runners? How fast were you going?

    You try jigging Locust/Cone etc? Blades or Hair Jigs?

    Nice report with pictures! I cant wait to make it over there, its about a 4 hr drive, but Walleye Dinner is worth it!

    Eric,

    We jigged and bladed Saturday morning in front of Wild Wings. Nothing happening so we went to Cone. Couldn't jig them up there either so we went trolling.

    Found them North of Cone, 28 FOW. DHJ 12's 15-80 back. Best was 40 back. Glass colors were the best. Blue and clown. Cranberry Crusher and Barbie were the hot reef runners. Speed .09 to 1.1. We stuck with the Husky Jerks for the majority.

    Shoot me an email next time your heading that way. Maybe we can get out and team up on the wallys.
