Went out on Wednesday night to search for some Eyes. The water level on the fox has dropped. good for wading now. I picked up a 14"er right away, let her go. Next was a 15 that swallowed the hook. Denny keeps hooking the 18 and 19"ers. We met up with a guy that was fishing. He claims that the walleye fishing is best from dusk until 9:30 10:00, then it picks up again real good around 12:00 till 1:30.
All of our fish this time were on Large fat Heads and Golden Roaches just off the bottom. Super light bite. you have to keep a tight line or hold your pole at all times. We sure got a lot more bites than fish. a couple of pictures

Very Nice. 8)~

Looks like dinner fare to me. :wink:

Great Pictures to.

Do you ever use leech's and if so, how does the bite compare to minnows.

Just wondering, seems like I always had better luck with detecting the bite with them.

I noticed in the past with a light bite it really does help to have a stinger hook on, you really increase your catch percentage.

Nice eyes! The last pic, the fish on the right looks like a saugeye.
