Shawl on Leaderboard- Shiver / Frenzy !!

Postby Singing Bridge » Sun Feb 08, 2015 12:11 pm

The goal my brother and I established was to get our family name on the leaderboard for our two walleye ice fishing tournaments- thanks to my brother, mission accomplished. With thousands of walleye fishermen in the tournaments that run for several weeks it was no small feat to crack
the top ten. We have caught hordes of smaller walleye, we kept moving and strategizing and finally hit a pod of big fish. Pics to follow, still a long way from home!

That is sage advice- holding a spot like that is critical to future success in that location. Part of the key to our success is finding pods of big walleye- let me rephrase that- UNDISTURBED pods of big walleye. Which means they are not being disturbed by the hordes of icefishermen which allows us to get a positive response from the fish themselves. No quadrunners and snowmobiles racing back and forth... no groups of busy icefishermen stomping around and drilling incessantly with power augers...

A modern aspect of walleye tournament fishing is networking. The guys who are consistently the most successful in walleye tournaments have vast networks of contacts on their cell phones in order to get accurate, up to the minute information. Although the information shared is in generalities, not specifics, this can go a long way toward experienced tournament fishermen cracking a leaderboard. I do not need to know your exact spot, so to speak, but if I can get within a mile or two of your big water spot or river location, I can generally figure it out on my own.

There is a big difference between being 5 miles out on Saginaw Bay, for example, or fishing two big cities upstream from the mouth of the main Bay tributary.

When word got out of my brother's fish, our cell phones blew up with inquiries- and just like Hodag suggested- we'd better hold on to that spot! 8-)

Thanks guys- getting ready to hit the ice again with a serious windchill and cold days forthcoming. That heater of mine, with air temps of -10 to -20 Fahrenheit and windchills of -30 to -40, is looking like it will be worth its weight in gold!
