Thanks Jerdog. I feel like ive learned alot chasing these guys over the years.........well at least learned what doesnt work enough times that doing things different gets me at least one walleye most trips lol.
There still though is just no consistency what so ever. I still cant stop from thinking that catching 1 fish running the same baits in the same depth in the same area must mean that im doing something wrong to only find one fish. I know these things eat. Every single one of them is an absolute chunk belly wise. I study their stomachs and even that has NO consistency.
The 5lb 3oz had 7 shad from 1/2 inch to 3 inch. It also had a 5 inch lamprey in it. I didnt even know their were lampreys in carters lake. I have never seen one attached to a fish..........but this one had become dinner to a walleye.
All I can do is keep trying I reckon haha.
