Bald Eagle Walleyes

6 posts in this topic

Any reports of late? I am hoping to get out there this weekend looking for walleyes. I fished it pretty hard over the winter for crappies and haven't yet tried for walleyes.

Any info on where they at? not specific spots but general info like structures and FOW?

I'd recommend fishing the weedline with cranks or some of the humps in the lake. Lots of people fish the deep drops by the islands with live bait too.

I've had a terrible time finding them this year. That said, my father in-law lives on the lake and in the middle of the day on the 4th he was trying to find sunnies with my niece and she hooked about a 20-24 incher that busted off by the boat in about 4 FOW. Not saying that small crappie minnows are the way to go, but I have caught some in the past pulling baords over the inside of the weedline with spinners. The shallow weeds are about the only place I haven't looked for the this year.

good luck

Report from a comrade: he went out last weekend before dawn & fished for hours & got the collar. I still think Bald Eagle walleye are as common as Bigfoot sightings. tongue.gif

Had a banner day there a year ago - 6 fish with 3 at 22" and 3 @ 27". Since then we've done so-so at best. I think the way that lake is set up I'm going to try pull spinners behind boards over the weeds. If that doesn't work I'm going to hang up the walleye stuff and only chase muskies out there the rest of this year.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.

      I've seen a lot of people dragging raps for "crappies" before the opener

      Go down to MG and they will steer you in the right direction.  I know that  different release is used for braid.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.
