Eagle Lake amateur

2 posts in this topic

I'm set to spend a few days with MANY in-laws at Eagle Lake. I've never been there and would appreciate any general tips/suggestions on what to try catching. I prefer walleye, but this time of year - and with family - it's way more about catching/action. Some in-laws say they focus on northern but didn't mention tactics/etc. I've also been told it might worth boating to Potato. (I guess they're connected....but given water levels, is that wise with a 17-foot glass boat?) So what would folks recommend? I did search past forums and found little on Eagle. Also sounds like Northern Bait would be a smart stop. Tips/helps/thoughts/even prayers...appreciated. It'd be great to outfish the in-laws! Thanks in advance!! cool.gif

eyes and big gills are prevalent, leeches and crawlers in 15 feet will get you fish. stop by Northern Bait when you get into town and we will fix you up. Jonah

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
