Where should I fish

Recommended Posts

CWKyle

Next weekend will be very close to the full moon and I'll be at the lake for the weekend without kids. Where should I go to find some walleyes? I will be staying on 6th Crow Wing, but was considering Long or Big Sand. I thought about long line trolling or lead core trolling with crank baits at night? Any advice?

I haven't the other two lakes you mentioned but do fish the 6th quite often. walleye fishing can be quite good there this time of year. My suggestion would be to find the very edge of the weed line(about 15.5-16.5fow)in the early morning or evening and drift or slow troll leechs or crawlers until you find some large bluegills stop and anchor and bobber fish until dark. the walleyes will be mixed in with the sunfish. we average 5-6 a night(walleyes). Please use restraint keeping the sunfish if you do, they can be very special in size also.

good luck

Thanks ANYFISH,

Any particular structure or areas of the lake that you would recommend? I've fished the point near the entrance to the eastern bay and the one just north of the public access before. Any others I should be looking for?

If you are going to be playing the full moon card= night trolling you should head to Long. Long has a great population of good sized eyes and they seem to be very catchable trolling after dark. I am sure the full moon will only enhance this presentation. Check in with Muskybug on the latest I know he has been out doin some trolling on Long. You can catch him at Northern Bait in Park Rapids.

tight lines

Those are two good starting points. but the entire weedline can be good. On the west by the access look for areas where the drop goes from steep to more gradual they seem to hold tighter there or maybe just easier for me to bobber fish! I have not had much luck along the north shore. I have never put much time in on the hump in the middle of the lake but have seen people fishing it ( a little hard to find) but that might be another option.

Hope this helps, don't catch 'em all!

      Used mine for the first time this weekend and I don't think I've ever used a better cutting auger.  Even my wife wanted to take a turn after seeing me use it and she's never used an auger of any type before.  We had maybe 18" of ice (just a guess, didn't measure it ) and I cleared the shavings a couple times with just a quick pull up at it worked slick.

      1.22.18 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota walleye fishing has been consistent between 18-21 feet. The most effective method is on the dead stick set slightly above the jigging rod. 25-28 feet is also filling buckets with a good walleye and sauger mix, even the occasional jumbo perch. Slender and Tundra spoons have been bringing fish to the house. We have also seen numerous northern pike this week with the largest being over 42.” Canadian walleye fishing remain excellent, especially along points and reefs. Crappie action has been hit or miss. The bite has been better in the morning with anglers limiting out in the first few hours. Fishing deeper than 28 feet is important to get good action. Until next week, Sunset Lodge

      Moved house on Friday night in the dark.  Got holes drilled and let aired out.  Came back out after supper to fish for crappies.  Only small ones but had some action.  Got up early on Saturday and tried chasing tuilibee's and struck out.  Graphed a few but not a bite.  Switched back to the house around 8:30/9.  Buddies were near the house and had one crappie in the bucket.  Five of us fished till 11:30 without a crappie being bigger than 9".  Went back out after lunch fished till supper and nothing.  Came out again after supper got a 14" and 12.5" in 5 minutes and not a fish after that.  Sunday fished from 7 am till 11 nothing bigger than a 8" crappie.  Fished 3 hours Friday, 12 hours Saturday, 4.5 hours Sunday with only 2 crappies over 10".  Pretty sad but heard a ton of poor reports all over the area.

      Fished long point sat/sun morning... It was bad.  Had some friends fishing out of Borderview it was slow over there as well.  Tried all the colors.  Not very aggressive on the ones we did catch.  Had heard fishing was good of course on the days before sat.

      I drive by there 20-30 times per year on my way up north and always wondered what they all said.  Thanks for posting them.  With the warning sign "Danger No Trespass Injury Very Likely" and the barbwire fence around the signs, I would not enter his property if I worked for the US post office or UPS.

      We fished Wednesday afternoon.through Friday out of Zippel. It was not as cloudy as the weatherman predicted. Our best day ended up being Thursday. The two of us in our shack limited out by noon, most were sauger. Hot lure was a 1/8oz glow red shiner Tingler spoon and a plain red hook under a bobber. We were in 26ft
