I have been checking some of my fishing pictures and info wrote down on Walleye.
I have fished many times below the Dam at Harry S. Truman Res. at Warsaw, Missouri and several Res. in Kansas either on the lake or below the dam.
For some reason nearly all the Walleye I have caught weighing 6 lbs or more [ with a few exceptions] have all been caught on either a 1/16th or 1/8th oz. feathered jig. The best color seems to be [head body tail] = a yellow black yellow, then a Red black yellow, a white Blakemore Roadrunner, then all purple. Any thoughts on this??
Any Walleye caught weighing less than 5 lbs. seems to bite a tube jig 95% of the time, and feathered jig the remainder.
The colors in the tube jigs or Blakemore Roadrunner TURBO TAIL replacement bodies most preferred seem to be: red and chartruese, black and chartruese, black and pink and a natural colored 2 in. Shimey shad. Again any thoughts??
One exception to all this seems to be Hillsdale Res. in Kansas.
When water is being let out, My friend Kevin and I, have caught 11 walleye so far over the years. Each and every one of them has been caught on either a 1/16th oz. black/orange Crawdad colored feathered jig or the same colored Bass Buster beetle spin. Nothing else seems to work. Up on the lake itself, every Walleye I have caught [any size] has been on a black/chartruese tube jig.
What can be going on here??
Trolling for Walleye on the lake at Kansas Res. Clinton, Melvern, and Pomona at the dam and rocky cove points. We seem to catch Walleye mostly on a Black/chrome or Blue/chrome, and the Crawdad colored Wiggle Wart, a Yellow w/black spots Bomber, or a Storm ThinFin.
I have fished all these = Harry S. Truman. Res. in MO. and in Kansas = Clinton, Council Grove, Hillsdale, John Redmond, Melvern, Milford, Perry, Pomona, and Tuttle Creek.
Everyone of these places the feathered jig and tube jig info I have and the weight of the fish caught, is almost identical.
There must be something too it. Any ideas / thoughts will be appreciated.
