I had a Lund Pro V that I had to replace the flooring and upper deck and decided to use vinyl instead of carpet. I purchased the vinyl from Cabelas and I was very happy with it. It comes in 6′ widths but I did each panel on the floor individually so as to access the fuel tank if needed. The floor was three pieces and the deck was one piece as the access doors for storage were surface mounted so it made it easy. The floor can be slippery if you wear the wrong kind of shoes and the floor is wet. I liked the vinyl as you could wash out the boat and keep things clean. Carpet looks great when new but if you get blood, fish slim, wiper poop, or just plain dirt, it starts looking bad quickly. I spoke with a guy who replaced the floor in his boat and used a bed liner type paint on his floor and it looked very nice also.SteveZParticipantOctober 18, 2013 at 11:11 amPost count: 55
I went out Friday evening for a few hours and caught one 21.5″ as well as a number of sub 15’s. Nice to catch a keeper and she was great to eat!SteveZParticipantOctober 18, 2013 at 11:08 amPost count: 55
I will be heading up on the 7th of November for a couple of days of fishing. I would guess the walleyes are starting to move but won’t get going big time until the water temp drops into the 40’s. I’ll be in the big green Alumacraft tiller boat, so say hi if you see me.SteveZParticipantOctober 9, 2013 at 12:31 pmPost count: 55SteveZParticipantOctober 8, 2013 at 5:43 pmPost count: 55SteveZParticipantOctober 2, 2013 at 2:55 pmPost count: 55SteveZParticipantOctober 1, 2013 at 7:22 amPost count: 55SteveZParticipantSeptember 24, 2013 at 9:20 pmPost count: 55
I have used Flicker Shad the last couple of years and they are pretty good right out of the package. I purchased a bunch recently from Fleet Farm ($2.89) and had a couple that just wouldn’t run right. I took them back and they exchanged with no problems. I used to use the jointed shad raps and find that the Flicker Shad seem to run better at higher speeds and cost a whole lot less.SteveZParticipantSeptember 23, 2013 at 12:20 pmPost count: 55

Bigger wipers like to stage in deeper water just out from where the whites are. If you can locate a school of whites busting shad, try trolling bigger crankbaits a ways out around them, I’ve caught a bunch of nice wipers and some walleyes doing that at Saylorville. Aside from that, fish the same places you would for any other predator fish, windblown points can be real good on the reservoirs.
Couldn’t agree with you more Stitch. Those bigger wipers do stage in deeper water and seem to relate to steeper drop offs. Slab spoons are the way to go when they are out deeper.SteveZParticipantSeptember 17, 2013 at 11:52 amPost count: 55SteveZParticipantSeptember 13, 2013 at 1:25 pmPost count: 55SteveZParticipantSeptember 12, 2013 at 8:08 pmPost count: 55SteveZParticipantSeptember 12, 2013 at 7:37 pmPost count: 55SteveZParticipantSeptember 10, 2013 at 9:05 pmPost count: 55
Depending on the water temp you may be better off heading to the north end of the lake. As the water cools the walleyes will make there fall trek to the dam. The can line at the north end can be good. Steep rocky shorelines are good also early and late. Have fun.
