Walleye Fishing Leamington July 1
Fishing was very tough July 1. I did catch 5 walleye, lots of giant silver bass and many sheephead. The going was tough though. I marked hordes of nice fish on my fishfinder about 5 miles south of Sturgeon Creek. They were very low in the water and reluctant to take bait. I noticed them rise up to 24-27 feet off the 35 foot bottom for a while and activity picked up a bit.
I was using planer boards (I prefer full size models), dipsey divers (3 different sizes) and a variety of spoons trailing rubber worms.
The mini dipsey with 150 feet of line and on the outside position of the planer board caught 3 walleye. These high walleye often won’t mark on your fishfinder because the boat noise actually scares them away from the viewing area of your fishfinder transducer. Those fish would have been down about 15 feet deep in the water.
I lost a couple of big fish through poor hookups or “user error”
Tight Lines and Stay Tuned – I see good things coming.
