Nisswa Guide Service- Whitefish Report!

4 posts in this topic

With the best walleye reports coming from the Whitefish Chain recently I figured that would be the best bet for this morning. I was right. Although the fish were a little tight lipped, I was still able to coax quite a few into biting. It took some hovering to get the job done. Windblown points held all the fish. Some spots held walleyes while many were just full of rockies. Most groups of fish were stacked up in 16-19 feet. Leeches seemed to outproduce redtails by a slim margin, but they did bite on both. I think with the slight coldfront the walleyes wanted an easy meal like a lively leech. Nightcawlers could have been a good choice today too. Also hooked up with a dandy smallmouth bass and a couple of clams. Overall a great morning on the water.

Jason,

I am kind of a newbie at this fishing stuff. What is a windblown point? Do you mean a point where the water is rough with a good walleye chop? Are these land points or points that are structure in the water (underwater points)? I am just trying to get the information so I can continue to learn how to catch these elusive walleyes?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

A windblown point refers to the wind pushing the waves into an under water point coming off the shore, rock pile, under water hump (any underwater structure). The side of the structure that the waves are crashing into will hold bait fish. If you have bait fish you have predators like walleyes. Example below.

Wind -> going this way
