Memorial Weekend

Recommended Posts

Headed to the SLR to change things up since the East end has been so boring this season.  I fished with some friends Saturday morning from 6 am to noon.  We focused on shallow water and were casting shallow cranks in 4-8 fow.  

We did try deeper and had zero luck although the Lowrance had a lot of good marks out to 50 fow.  The bite was pretty good and a lot of 15-17 inch fish.  We landed 40 plus eyes but couldn't scrape up a 3 man limit of keepers.  Signs of a healthy fishery and young eyes for the future.  The longest one was 24".  The rest were 18 to 21.

Headed back to the cottage for the remainder of the beautiful weekend.  The reports were not to good from the Three Mile, Chaumont, Guffins, and BRB.  Most of the guys I know didn't even bother to fish the Cape Vincent Chamber of Commerce derby because the fishing has been so poor.  A lot of charters boats still relying on pickerel to put fish on the line for the parties. I took the kids out to catch some perch, crappie and panfish.  We picked a few nice perch and some crappie to have enough for two nice meals for the family.  The kids were happy and smiling so it was all wonderful.  A couple of largemouths got in the way but that was fun as well.  Great weather, blessings and happy family!

Nice to see a healthy crop of smaller fish. Seems I seldom catch shorts that I have to release on the river.

Yea buddy!! Gotta love the pics of the children holding up fish. I know personally that if your looking to get kids interested in fishing the walleye is the last thing I’d be focused on, hell even I get disgusted at times!! Definitely not Erie that’s a fact!! Congrats to your outing and spending time kids in the outdoors!!! PAP.

Thanks guys, the hectic schedule doesn't allow to just pick up and go as most of you already know.  Have to grasp it, cherish the blessings and take advantage because its all gone at the blink of an eye.

What part of the river where you fishing in? I know there were killing them in ogdensburg a couple weeks ago, but I hate making the trip up that far.

A hardcore fisherman but a SLR walleye newbie here. Was just wondering, other then say water temp, why does bight get hot in one part of river versus another? Thanks for any info. Heading up soon to SLR and trying to hone some skills for the trip.
