I did a write-up and was working on it off and on throughout the past week. Got sick of writing papers so I needed a brief break and change of atmosphere.

This write-up/article/blog submission/whatever covers lure ideas for fishing the rivers this year - or for any time, really. Basically the lures highlighted are those I have used for the past few years and new things I'll be putting to use this year. Some I'm very good at using while others I suck at using yet I still use them.



It's been a rough year thus far as I have yet to catch a single fish because they simply aren't ready yet. Lots of factors are involved: weather, too strong of currents, cold water temps - everything is behind schedule by a few weeks.

If you read through this long write-up, which I hope you do so but if not it's okay with me, I am hoping that this offers some help as far as lure ideas, tips, and tricks are concerned.

It's very long and I have it condensed down into a link - otherwise this post will be ridiculously long.

Any questions, ideas, thoughts, criticisms (Pokerguy45 this is your chance), feel free to respond to this and I can fill you in even further.

Finally, please keep in mind that my main walleye venue is not well-known for catching fish in numbers, nor considered as a "walleye factory" because people don't believe they exist in there. While specifically targeting walleyes in the middle of nowhere, I just happen to stumble upon a few random stranded fish located in the unexpected and I somehow manage to catch them - and most of the time they're over 20-inches which is pretty cool.

Don't worry guys - I'm not trying to sabotage WCF by bringing you guys over to my site which has nothing to do with the Chicago area - my article is just too friggin' long to make a post out of.

enjoy!

Thanks Jason.

I got your little feedback note and you brought up a pretty good idea for another write-up. . . . Something along the lines of being more scientific:

JasonN said:
As there are likely many waters such as the river you refer to, i'd be interested to hear more specifics about this river. Not necessarily name or location, but rather attributes that make it a walleye water, but not a "prime" walleye fisherie. I like to fish waters such as this and knowing exactly what to look for, and times of year can be extremely informative.
Hell of an idea!

Maybe in the next few weeks.

Anyways, I'm dying to get some reports up. This year has been horrible so far. :( If I don't catch, then I write - seems to be the trend so far this year. :lol: Kind of boring but better than nothing.

Just need to put up a review (with pics of course) of previous years and that alone would leave a good impression with anyone.

hahaha. Good call John.

I can do that just for shits and giggles which I probably will do if I keep getting bored, but I just ordered new camera equipment for this year... waterproof camera and a little tripod.

Need new and better shots. Underwater ones too! :D

nice Camera, look forward to the new pics.

think a picture of you holding at least one 20"walleye would allow the reader to at least think hey he must know something about fishing. And you'll add so much more to it with a picture of you actually holdinbg a walleye instead of just lures, It's just a suggestion. Either way though the article was pretty good Didn't see anything that was crazy ou of the ordinary. But very good article.

but everyone loves pics!! Whoot!

The point of it was just to showcase some lures worth using - nothing more. As far as fish photos are concerned, we've got it covered! Think again. :)
