Never used either since moving to Nebraska in Fall 2014 but since most of my warm season success last year with walleye, wipers, and catfish have been at night was wondering if glow in the dark attracts or inhibits nite bites ?

Certainly, a charged glow jig would make it easier not to slam the swivel into the tip top in pitch dark conditions.

These are black bear hair with a little opposum and flash for contrast. Wire guard jigs are 1/8, propeller baits are 1/4 oz., I painted the blades on them.

2019 was a really good year for me crappie fishing, lot's of 11-13's with some 14+ inchers, didn't break the 15 inch mark this year. Here are some of the baits used.  I haven't fished the propeller baits in a few years but gave some to a buddy and he slayed some slabs fishing them under a float, something I hadn't tried before so I tried it and it worked. The duck jigs still are #1 with me but caught quite a few on blade baits as well. The chartreuse/orange blade baits were the best by far.

  Fall walleye fishing
Posted by: AtticaFish - 12-04-2019, 01:03 PM - Forum: Jig Fishing - Replies (3)

Wow, did I ever stumble on to a honey hole!

Last couple years I was getting a few walleye here and there at an upground reservoir 20 minutes from my house. Fishing pressure really ticked up in the last 2 years though and pretty much all the fish over 15" or so have disappeared.

On a whim, I tried a different upground reservoir (still only 20 minutes from home, but opposite direction) that I haven't fished for years. Skunked with walleye on first 2 trips but was catching some really nice bass. Came back and switched up my tatics a little and started catching some walleye. After several trips now, I think i have refined my search area and technique! My freezer is full and will just be fun fishing up until ice season I think.

Last night I caught easily 25 walleye fishing from 6:30 to 8:30. All but maybe 2 fish I would have kept any other time. I kept 3 fish to top off the freezer.

Catching some fish on the popular stick bait cranks.... Husky Jerks and X-Raps. But the vast majority of fish are coming on the Keitech 3.8 and 4.8 fat swing impact swim baits. It has been some amazing fishing. I've had 3 separate nights now catching over 20 fish in a night. Took home my limit (6) on 2 nights and a couple others here and there. Some BIG fish too. 28" fish last week and a 27" fish last night.

Technique has been pretty simple. Rigging the big swims on light 1/16 or 1/8 heads with heavy oversized hooks. Casting parallel to shore and counting down a couple seconds then start slow reeling. After 5 or 6 slow cranks, stop reeling but keep the line tight and they will thump it on the drop. Man oh man has this been some fun fishing!!!

This is why those big 5" baits have been working. This was the stomach contents of the 28" fish. Had some other smaller bluegill in ot as well. Pretty digested but I am guessing it was a perch.

Had a friend over for bucktailing cod in front of the shop yesterday morning.

Trout used to show every evening lately so I made a few casts in the shallows around dusk. Got some small and pre-spawn ones together with this well fed 53cm keeper. You can spot my lure maker nemesis, the savage gear run-through sand eel. Its the most effective seatrout lure I have come across. I use it as a reference to see if fish is around or simply when I am frustrated and want to make some meat. You don`t have to be a seatrout angler to understand, but it helps.

Since things were going well, I thought I go after zander in the dark. It started out well with a small fish released, one lost and one 56cm landed within half an hour.

Two or three hours later without another bite, I came across this. Wasn`t expecting that. First northern for me in the canal and also the first to stretch a meter.

Yes, Im bored.  Today I was looking at fishing tackle for sale on the used market thru a local buy, sell trade market.  Once in a while I find a bargain,  Anyhow, Guy has for sale a blue tooth reel  and a blue tooth rod. Sure enough I went looking and the technology is out there.  Yes I take a phone fishing but its not for any reason other than a call for help or a call to find where someone is fishing.  Now they have a reel with a built in bite alarm and a rod with the same technolgy,  Not that I want to need a phone to go fishing but I am curious if anyone has tried these contraptions.
