2019 Ranger is here and ready to go!
by Capt Juls on 11/13/18
Spent the day putzing in the new Ranger. She showed up last week, and I found some nice heated storage for her, for the winter. However, she's not hibernating, and if the weather permits I'll be taking some late season trips before the ramps ice up.
Looks like we'll get some warmer weather mid to late week, next week...and, hopefully NO WIND!! So, I'm looking forward to breaking her in, and catching some fish in the process.
The walleye are feeding well, and fattening up now, so from now until spring...they will just keep getting bigger. :)
I saw a report from the ODNR stating that the 2018 walleye hatch was a "Record breaking hatch"....beating out the phenomenal hatch from 2003. The 2003 hatch found 183 young of the year walleye in a hectare, and this year they were recording upwards of 255 per hectare....so you can see, if that's the case....this hatch was outrageously good!
They also mentioned that there was a really good perch hatch too. I know from fishing this past season that there was also a very good hatch with the sheephead, white bass, and Emeralds too. So, it looks like the next decade or more will be fantastic fishing!
I'll be doing very select days the rest of this season, but if you want to try and hit one of those days....let me know. :)
I am taking reservations for the 2019 season now, so if you want in on some of this action, and would like to fish with me....give me a shout. My contact info is at the top of every page. ;)
Have a safe winter everyone!
