Short Tuesday evening trip with the daughters to Lake Wanahoo. Trip was to focus on the Walleye as we had a good Walleye chop going from the North winds. Saw lots of baitfish on the sonar suspended (likely Crappie and Bluegill). We had a bi-catch of Crappie, Bluegill and a Largemouth Bass. Two of those lovely black bullhead landed in the wally spots. More research needed at Wanahoo if fishing for Walleye! A quick trip, but a very nice evening fishing trip to Wanahoo.
On Sunday morning I took friends TJ and Karie to Lake Wanahoo for some fun fishing! We started fishing by "dipping" in 9' of water. The walleye came slow but no complaints as we were catching crappie and some really nice bluegill on jigs and leeches and crawlers. As usual, the W eyes were finicky and we went to finesse fishing with a Satra Special rig as they seemed to be biting short! We ended up catching 8 short walleye but had fun with them. TJ thought he was jinxed catching walleye but he worked through it and caught few! Bass had Karie's number and she had fun landing 2 in the 16-18" range and 2 other hog bass took her jig into snags and pulled lose. Guess they didn't want their photo taken with Karie ?? I gave a demo on fishing the satra special rig and on the demo caught a small walleye. Usually don't happen like that........even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in awhile!!!
Recent weekend fishing trip to Davis Creek and Calamus Reservoir in Central Nebraska with Jake and Chris. We caught numerous small walleye, a few white bass, and pesky drum. Our last day of the trip we loaded up and headed to Maple Creek Reservoir to see if we could find a few more, larger size walleye and more action overall. We caught walleye, c. catfish, largemouth bass, really nice bluegill, and one big bullhead (pictured) at Maple Creek. It was a nice weekend and the lakes were busy with anglers! Don't cuss the wind it can blow even harder on these trips. Always ask for a walleye chop.
