Fished Glendo this weekend (night) fishing, Pulling shallow running Raps in the shallows 4-8 feet, caught your limit (Walleyes) in 2 1/2 hours. As my buddy says it beats competing with the water skiers and ski jets.
All depends on what time of day, Early morning I like fishing 12-18 ft, with raps or worm harness, Hour before dark and after dark we move into the shallows and pull shallow running raps. Let me know how you do.
Hey guys, it's been a good while since I've been on the boards. I'm planning to fish Glendo this weekend. I'll have access to a boat but I rarely fish from a boat so I'm not sure what to use or how to use it. I also haven't fished at night before but I think I can talk the boat owner into that. Do we have to troll? Any suggestions on bait/tackle to bring would be appreciated.
If you are going to fish some of the "community" holes, the best thing to do is get up VERY early and hit them before the crowds (before sunrise) that will really increase your odds out there. I leave the exploring for when some of my spots start seeing a lot of pressure. Might not work for everybody but it's a detail that I have noticed and usually pays off well.

I fished Glendo on the 28th and 29th but not very seriously. My brother (the boat owner) was more interested in towing every kid we had around behind the boat. I did get a little trolling time in when we went slowly up and down the canyon inlet. I also fished a bit near the marina and there were definitely fish there, but I couldn't get a clear enough view of them to identify what they were.
I waded out from Sandy Beach and cast out by the weeds (grass?) that was sticking up. Got a couple nibbles there but I suspect that what was biting was too small to chomp down on my treble hook. (Just a guess)
I did fish at night, but only from shore. No luck there.
I fished the same lure all weekend, mainly because I was too lazy to change and often because by brother was hauling arse across the water.
At the marina I asked about a guide and they looked at me like I had grown horns or something.
I sure as heck won't be there this weekend. All those eclipse nut jobs will be there taking up space.
