Minnesota Walleye Trail- Whitefish Chain

2 posts in this topic

Welcome back to the Brainerd/Nisswa area MWT anglers. We are very excited to be working with Polebender and the Minnesota Walleye Trail. This tour is a class act. Really it is the finest run walleye circuit in the state. Every time the MWT comes to town they bring some of Minnesota's best walleye anglers. In the past they have fished Pelican and Gull, now they will try the skills on the Whitefish chain on July 8. The weigh in site is Driftwood resort on Upper Whitefish.

Whitefish should be an awesome event. The lake is loaded with walleye structure and fish can caught in a variety of presentations. The summer bite just started on the chain about two weeks ago. It should continue right on through the tourney weekend. Some top presentations are rigs, spinners, crankbaits, or slip floats. We'll see what the top tourney anglers put together. With all the nice fish in the system we should see some impressive baskets.

Good Luck to all the competitors and be sure to stop in and say hi. We'll have everything you'll need to conquer the chain. If you still want to get signed up there are still a couple of openings.

      We are looking to take the boat out for maybe the last time as a family.  Any advice on where to try this time of year?  We were thinking of Pearl.  We went to Grand a few weeks ago and it was really green, not sure if that cleared up now or what.   Any help would be great!  We don't care what we are catching, however Crappies would be great!

      Heading out again shortly.  Quick report from yesterday.  It was inconsistent for us. That's probably because it's my first attempt on Vermilion ever after labor day.  4 of us spent our day vertical jigging with a little lead core mixed in.   We kept 11 and had a couple 23-26" fish.  We never really found a big pod. Almost everything was caught jigging. Trolling was tough although i know it's been a good trolling bite yet.  Depending on the spot we fished 24'out to 40'. I'll have another report tonight.

      Hudson area report.  Fished yesterday morning with a buddy from 8:30 till 2:30 and found some active fish.  Water temp was around 54 degrees.  Speed right around 2.2 mph.  Same program of snap weights and scatter raps.  Caught around a dozen eyes/saugers, 1 surprise 18 smallie, and 1 white bass.  Keeper eyes/saugers went 15, 16 17, 19 and one around 20.  Best water seemed to be between 24 and 27 feet of water.  Good luck out there.  
      This site has really tanked, and I haven't been on here for about a year, but I felt compelled to fill some of my old duck blind buddies in on the latest happenings in NW Minnesota. From what I can see we've really hit that Late October lull time.  The vast majority of our local birds pulled out with that big full moon, and the cool clear nights last week.  I've been back and forth across the countryside quite a bit, and I'm seeing very few migratory waterfowl in the area. With temps being what they are, and now that everything has dried out quite a bit up here, the majority of our farm fields have been cultivated and turned up black.  Pretty balmy now for this time of year.  I wouldn't expect any kind of big migration over the next week or so, but I'd imagine a few will start trickling down out of Canada here and there. I hear things are going pretty well out in the Dakotas.  Prolly smart to head over there if you really wanna get into birds.  Just not much to speak of at all right now in Northwest Minnesota.
