Caught my first Walleye on Buggs monday trolling spoonplugs and roostertails.A nice 23 incher that hit a white spoonplug.Put in at Buffalo and fished up to the dogleg hump at Island Creek.Caught some eating size cats many white perch a nice size white bass and a small striper.The perch seemed to prefer a white roostertail
Nice, I've been looking for one of those for about 30 years now! Caught my first drum back in May, maybe my walleye will happen this year too. I got a bunch of those spoonplugs too after seeing JP's reports. Have not had a chance to fish them yet. Figured I'd catch a few stripers trolling my leadcores and downriggers and then try for perch with them. Thanks for the report.
Tight lines and screaming drags to all!!!! Off-white 18' 1978 Dixie Dual Console with 165 Mercruiser I/O.
Caught a five pounder off the rocks below the new bridge on the left going down years ago on a red fin red and black,use to catch them up in the river above the 360 bridge in feb off panther martins with worm attach,killer for white bass and ever now and then pick up a small mouth.also behind the dam trolling a fastrack nice one back there.i bet they are still there.Kfive
cc,he was in about 16 ft right off the downstream end of the dogleg hump.My daughter caught a nice whitebass that day too.I,m sure over 2lbs but I did'nt weigh it.Don't see anywhere to put pics on this site.I like trolling that 3 way rig it's like a box of chocalates ya never know what you'll get.glad fishdoc taught me how to use it
jp, I've caught as many as 3 walleye in a day, a couple of times, on the spoonplug at Buggs. those 2 times I was trollin only the plug(on wire line), not the 3 way. once was on the ol tressle in big Nutbush, the other was on the ol bridge remnants at Clarksville, 22-24fow. I've caught one or two a day several times fishin the area where you caught yurs. That area, from the mouth of Grassy to the Dr's house, has the rep of bein the best walleye area on the lake. I hung one that looked to be 8 pounds there last spring castin a Bomber model "A" for bass. of course I had 8 bass rods tangled in the net when I got it to the boat! I've heard of a guy that catches them in the same area jiggin a spoon, but can't get him to admit it! most all that I've caught here have been large, 4 pounds an up. we caught 3 over 20 inches at Philpott Tues!
