Attn: Whitefish Chain walleye experts

4 posts in this topic

I'm heading up to Crosslake for our annual family vacation this Thurs.-Tues. I've fished these lakes before, but I've had no success with the walleye. Can anyone give me some advice on areas to target. In fact, any advice would help. Ya know, all that "i ain't lookin for your secert spot" yadda yadda applies. But just some quick tips could help. Thanks

Troll the weededges on Lower Whitefish with Shad Raps or other cranks. Also try jigging the humps and sunken islands on Cross, but you often will get pike nailing you. I have got some there, but not many, though it is where everyone thinks they should be smile.gif Also the points on Crosslake down into about 20 FOW has gotten us some, even in midday.

Good luck,

I'm no expert, but I'll throw in my 2 cents. Don't waste your time jigging or rigging. I've found to catch Whitefish Wally's it's best to move quicker and target the aggressive fish. Use spinner rigs and cranks. Troll the weed edges as said above. Your best luck will come within a couple hours of sunrise/sunset.

Thank you both for the advise. Keep'em coming.You don't have to be a expert either, even if you tell me what didn't work, it would help. I guess I shoulda titled this thread differently.

      169 overpass (293rd or county 9) north of Zimmerman...take the off ramp and go east (right) to county 19 take a right going south through the S curve and hang a left at the end of S curve on 289th Ave take that about 2 miles to Blue Lake Dr take a right and then take your first left a couple blocks later to the landing.

      We're a little over a week away from the 6th annual LCRA Ice Fishing contest on Lake Gervais in Little Canada, MN! Lots of great prizes, over $10,000 in prizes and raffle. Grand prize for fishing is a Marcum flasher, a Clam X200 flip over thermal and an Eskimo auger! Come on out Saturday, February 4th, noon to 3pm. Line up early for a good spot, the tent will open by 9am with beverages (alcohol and non-alcohol), food and raffle tickets. The raffle is the LCRA's winter raffle. $5 tickets, grand prize is a trip to Vegas and $1,000 cash! You don't have to be present to win in the raffle, that will be drawn after the prizes for the fishing contest around 4pm that day.   The Little Canada Recreation Association is a non-profit group that raises money to offset registration fees for youth in the Little Canada, Roseville, Maplewood and Vadnais Heights areas.

      So as far as live bait rigging what works best? Shiners? Suckers? Fatheads? As far as this time of year goes.
