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.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
