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.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
