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.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
