Default Epic Night of Walleye Fishing

It's only been a year really since I've got into walleye fishing, I wanted to challenge my self to catch a fish that seems a bit more difficult to catch then I'd say most species. (Some of you may disagree)

After fishing for two days in some brutal wind and catching 3 inch pan fish. I stood ground on a 35 degree night - 35mph wind and around 10 PM it all started, boy did it pay off! We managed 5 MA walleyes and half dozen keepers! I finally decided to try walleye, man it's good, doesn't taste fishy at all a bit sweet. Used the basic uncle bucks batter.

I've been going to the crack and chateu and chasing! Hope it produces more biggens!

I do have a question for the more experienced walleye angler how am I suppose to grab a large walleye If by mistake I donít have a net?

Thanks! I'm learning shore fishing for walleye before 8pm from shore seems pointless, from the boat you can catch them at any time I feel like but shore fishing is definitely good well past the sunset.

Attaboy! Almost enough inspiration to get me out... Alas, I have joined Slayerfish and I am retired from walleye fishing at night from shore. My eyes are getting bad and it's too cold to be in skirts on cold nights.

As far as grabbing them: just lip them! Seriously, I do lip them sometimes, but not as a way to get them out of the water. Without a net, just grab them by the tail, then support their bellies before you lift them out. You can also try a boga grip. Personally, I don't like using the boga grip to get them out of the water. I get excited when I get a big walleye on the end of my line. Most of the time, I just end up pouncing on them and getting my feet wet. Ain't got time to get the boga out.

Thanks for the tip guys I felt bad and guilty grabbing her the way I did but lesson learned. Believe it or not for some reason my luck for catching big ones is due to the lack of not having the net around haha.

@aofisher

Worse yet that night I had flip flops on and now it may be superstition but the flip flops are good luck haha. I’m heading back out tomorrow for more hopefully not too cold.

I like fishing in flip flops when I can, but when the rocks are glazed with a layer of frozen water, you would be better off with ice crampons...
