    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.

    I have 3 dozen Easton Aluminum bare shafts that are from the mid 80’s. Using 2″ vanes just to see how they shoot. The nocks are tapered so no lighted nock. May do some with feathers just for old time sake.

    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.

    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.

    Beautiful mount. With the gold color I would say not in Iowa.

    I believe those are aphids.

    I would hook up a set of muffs and turn the water on. If the blocks water jacket is not plugged completely, you will see where the water comes out of the block. Hook your discharge tube to that spot.

    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.

    Went out yesterday morning and caught about 100 in a couple of hours. Most were small but had a couple that went 16″.

    The white bass bite on Saylorville has been very good lately in the mornings.

    Depending on the year of your outboard your alternator should be 19Amp or about that. Depending on the wattage of your spotlight you may have some issues. Your spot light is probably 50 to 100 watts and shouldn’t cause a problem as long as the engine is running.

    The reports I have been hearing for daytime fishing has been getting better. A 30″ wiper was caught in the last week or so and a number of 24+. I made it out one evening and got on fish right away. The fish were busting all over and the 2″ shad were everywhere. Nothing big but we did catch a couple that went 15″. Sure was a beautiful night on the water.
