With the weather forecast being for sunny skies and calm water I just had to make another trip down to Potholes Reservoir. I had a great day with Brian Nielson last Saturday and this time I added James Lebow and Tom Verschueren to the crew. Our main focus was going to be on walleye, but I also wanted to see if we could get some of the big crappie and bluegill that are being caught there this fall. Brian, James and I agreed, without too much debate, that we should start just east of the mouth of Crab Creek. There are rolling dunes under the water here that attract walleye. We set up our rods with a variety of spinners on Slow Death hooks behind bottom bouncers and started trolling. A willing walleye of about 14 inches came aboard not too long after we got started, and we go another one of about the same size a little later on. Brian and I only got one walleye for our efforts the last time we were on Potholes, so we stuck with the walleye fishing and didn’t really spend any time fishing for crappie and bluegill. We were pestered with those catfish and did get a couple of bluegill and perch and wound up with three walleye for the day.
