Fish the current areas. Above the falls, below the d a m , river etc. Depending on water temps you may be able to find them up tight on the weeds and wood.

If you have a canoe take the 1st portage and fish below the falls. We have done very well there early and late in the day. Jig n minnow there and other current areas but crawlers always work. Walleyes love crawlers no matter where I have been.

Slip bobbers with a leech or minnow can also produce once you find a point break or rock pile.

I havent been there for about 5 years though so this may be old news but should still hold up.

Good luck.

You will need a permit if traveling to the Northeast end of the lake, maybe HP restrictions there also. Check at the Wolf Center before heading up. We have done well just trolling in front of the campground in the evening with a crawler harness. If you get the proper permit, head East from the campground boat launch and look for some stumps and try a slip bobber and crawler. Talk to the campground host there, he'll give you some good info also.

Northlander,

You sure did need a permit to fish the BWCA side of Fall lake if you weren't a cabin owner on the lake 5-7 years ago.

You're lucky you aren't rotting in some prison making picnic tables and latrines for the Forest Service! grin.gifgrin.gif

You will need a BWCAW permit to travel North past the canoe landing. Day Trip Paddlers can self register at the Entry Point Information Post ( That must be what NL did when he took a canoe to the Splash Lk. rapids ).

-Not sure regarding the 25hp. motor permits/ availability...

Later -CLoma

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
