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.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
