Cutfoot Walleyes

4 posts in this topic

Good day all. My vacation to Williams Narrows is less than 2 weeks away and I am looking for any tips relating to catching walleyes on Cutfoot. We spend a lot of time chasing pannies, but spend the evenings on Battle or Seeley Point bobbering for walleyes. What spots would be better? What techniques and structures would be best during the day? I have heard that Cutfoot has a lot of weed walleyes, where would a guy look for them and what presentation would be best? Thanks for any info. I need to do something to pass the time....is it the 30th of June yet???? Thanks

On CFS, this time of year I'd stick to the gravel bar between battle and Seeley...

However if you're looking for Weedeyes... especially if a rain has come through just before prime time...

Then my semi-secret hot spot is the weed edge along McAvity Island..> just watch out for cross traffic, and that point that sticks out from the land comes out shallow farther than you'd think.

****

But really if the weather isn't prohibitivie... I've head out to big winnie for the best chances.

You are talking about the point that runs South off the Main land and the big bullrush stands that run to the North of the island...near what they call "The Snag". Just wondering if I am thinking of the same area you are..

No I'm talking about if you're trolling from the Snag, south... On the McAvity Bay side of McAvity Island... Lots of Walleye relate to that weedline in the summer around prime time, because that weedline holds a lot of YoY perch...

If you troll that with a perch rap on a long line at prime time you'll see some action...

BUT as you troll further south, to let your rap make the full pass, you'll see this point jagging out from the main land... That point sticks out much farther and more shallow than it first appears...

I was able to follow it dead on with my Lake Master, and picked up some action on the sand/gravel drop off of that point.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources invites citizens to learn about proposed recreation opportunities in Centennial State Forest, a 3,394-acre state forest in Cass County donated to the DNR in 2013.  The meeting will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, June 26, in the Walker Community Center Rotary Room, 105 Tower Ave., Walker. Following a presentation at 6 p.m., there will be time for questions and answers, map review and comments. Minnesota state forests are classified into three groupings for off-highway vehicle (OHV) and motor vehicle use: In “managed” forests you may ride on all state forest roads, signed trails and non-designated routes that are not posted closed. In “limited” forests you may ride on all forest roads and trailed signed for specific motor vehicle use. “Closed” forests are open only to highway-licensed vehicles on forest roads. As part of the overall planning process, the DNR is proposing to classify Centennial State Forest as “limited.” The DNR is also proposing to designate approximately 11 miles of forest roads, to allow OHV and motor vehicle use on those roads. Comments received at the meeting will be used to develop a final recommendation that will be submitted to the DNR commissioner for approval. Written comments may be submitted by fax to 651-297-1157, by email to foresttrailplanning.dnr@state.mn.us, or by mail to Joe Unger, Parks and Trails Division, Minnesota DNR, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN  55155-4039. The DNR will accept written comments through Wednesday, July 26. For more information call: Tim Williamson, OHV acquisition and development specialist, Parks and Trails Division, 218-308-2369. Joel Lemberg, Backus Area forest supervisor, Forestry Division, 218-947-3232, ext. 223. For more information, visit the Centennial State Forest webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The Minnesota United, a new professional soccer team nicknamed the Loons, has teamed up with the Department of Natural Resources to offer licensed hunters and anglers an opportunity to purchase discounted tickets to a home match Sunday, May 7, against Sporting Kansas City.  “We hear the call of the loon while we’re out on the water and exploring on land, and now it also means Major League Soccer,” said Jenifer Wical, the DNR’s Fish and Wildlife marketing coordinator. “If you have a fishing or hunting license now you can get this deal on tickets to a Minnesota United game.” This offer is made possible through a partnership between the DNR and Minnesota United. The discount is available for all price points at TCF Bank Stadium with tickets starting at $20. For information on purchasing tickets, visit the DNR-United page. For questions or orders of 10 tickets or more, call 763-476-2237 or email tickets@mnufc.com. The DNR and soccer team has also partnered on a season ticket offer that supports loon populations throughout the state by way of the Minnesota Loon Monitoring Program. The first 11,842 season ticket holders – one for every lake in Minnesota – have a portion of their season ticket support the DNR’s loon program, and all inaugural season ticket holder accounts will receive a complimentary Minnesota State Parks Day Pass.

      Was out in DL area Saturday....still the same....prespawn staging 8-12 ft but did get some dandies late evening in front of an inlet pretty shallow 4-6ft and they were the most agressive Crappies I've caught this spring.  Mother Nature has dealt us another yo-yo spring up our way and that $uck$
