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?

Thanks! wink.gif

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.

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
