Fishing Walleye

4 posts in this topic

I'm going fishing on Mille Lacs with a launch in a couple weeks. I have never caught a Walleye and was wondering what lures, or bait would be good to use for a newcomer. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

Mora,

If you are going out on a launch they will have rods all rigged up for you. Most of the launches these days slip bobber.

Save the money that you would spend on tackle and just enjoy the trip.

Exactly what Paul said. The only thing you need to bring on a launch is food and beverages. They supply everything you need including bait and poles.

If you go on a good day, your lauch could see 100+ fish and many PB. I got my best a 27.5 and will be hard to beat. Have a safe and fun trip.

Yep, Paul is spot on!!!

When fishing in that large a group, its just easiest and most effective to slip bobber!

Best of luck on your trip! Bring a camera!!! I was out today, not on a launch, but 3 of us boated 30 fish and the majority in the slot!.. lotsa fun!

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
