Cutfoot Sioux Walleyes

6 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

I would focus on the humps just off the deer lake landing, just before the gap. It's usually a good midseason bite out there. Also the spots you mentioned are good. Don't be afraid to wander out to winnie, Bena Bar can be a great producer this time of year w/ a leech or crawler in the early morning, daybreak, or late evening. Also, not many people know about it, but the south side of the lake down by muskie bay and moses bar can have a great night bite. Troll rap's in 6-10 fow. It seems to be either really hot or dead, so if you don't get anything after an hour or two, you might as well sleep.

I usually just use fatheads and do real well with them. Walleyes seem to love them, and they are cheaper and survive longer.

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
