so far crawlers have been our biggest producer this year. Troll in 8' to 20' of water, evening or am are best. It does'nt hurt to try cranks but this year live bait has worked best. fri. we boated 7 in 1.5 hrs. and I pulled in only 1 on sat. morn.

How is the nightfishing on leech? I'll have leeches and crawlers, but I'm curious to know the minnow of choice up there as well.

12345. I was on Woman a month ago and picked up 8 walleyes in 2 hours. I put 4 of them back so at least there are those 4.....Unless someone killed them. 3 14s" and a 26".

they take the eggs out of the woman eyes then hatch them into fry and have stocked all the other area lakes with eyes for years, replacing I believe ten percent to woman. Yes now they have been putting them into leech also. Still walleyes in woman, not what there used to be. Maybe just tougher to catch or they are getting fat off the millions of crayfish who knows. Would like to see them leave it alone for a while and see what happens. One of the few natural reproducing walleye lakes the dnr messes with. Maybe take the eggs out of mille lacs walleyes and see what people say shocked.gif

After recent discussion about wearing life jackets while tubing, it was encouraging to note that one couple on Leech Lake was safety minded. Even though they did not have any other clothing on, the person being pulled on the tube was at least wearing her life jacket.

i have friends that gone to woman alot this year and they have been slaughtering the walleye's out there....didn't sound like it was tough as one friend is new to fishing and he has been doing real well.....to each his own....and if the DNR is putting back 3% that would be 1% higher than if they let them spawn naturally if I do recall the stats for percentage that survive from natural producing (2%)..

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
