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.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
