Wading to Bluegrass is not possible.
We are starting to see a few more walleye being taken.Â No limits brought up to the shop yesterday but soon enough. The sunny days warm the river a degree then the cold nights drop it a degree.Â So we are kinda hovering right at that 40- 41 degree mark.
5/8- 3/4 oz weight
36-40 inch leader
Colors with green variations still working best-but its early in the run.Â that neon green firetail has been pretty good.
We often get askedÂ Â whether scent is important in fishing .Â We all know that fish have sensory organs in their bodies. Sharks can â€œsmellâ€ blood from miles away, and a catfish will quickly respond to stink bait presented on the bottom. Certainly there is some ability for a walleye to respond to scent in the water. There is also plenty of evidence out there that scent works.Â Berkeley has a whole research departmentÂ dedicated to scent development. Even better everyoneâ€™s got the buddy that swears by some concoction because of the one day when he whacked them using it and everyone else didnâ€™t.Â Â SoÂ is it likely that using scent will turn a zero fish day into the best day ever? No, but can it possibly get you a couple extra bites, make the walleye hold the bait a split second longer (giving you time to set the hook), or give you the confidence you need to fish more effectively? I absolutely think so.Â But don’t expect aroma alone to entice strikes, lure shape and movement still play major roles in hooking on .
All in all, I think its worth it to put a few drops of some juicy minnow scent in your bag of tails and let em soak -cant hurt.
Have fun, be safe and good luck fishing.
