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.

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on

      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
