Lookin for walleye

3 posts in this topic

Coming up to Chippewa Lodge on Leech's Southeast side Aug 11-18th. Wondering how the bite is ... what's working, colors, what time of day. Maybe even other area lakes, seen some stuff about Woman on here. Is the night bite still on there. Any info would be appreciated, don't worry I won't catch 'em all. I've got an older Crestliner (grey) with a 90 hp Yamaha, if U see me don't be afraid to say Hi. Thanks

Spent the last week in the area, found a few walleyes and norderns in the evening along the east shore trolling plugs. Also got some on the east side of Bear Island during the day on plugs when it was windy. There is a shallow flat that is located right in front of Chippewa that is good for eyes at nite too. I like to use plugs cause the crayfish get all over bait this time of year.

Thanks for the help Bad Moon, I forgot to add, I'd read about gill nets up there. I've never been on a lake with gill nets, are they well marked, where abouts are they on the lake, or are they nothing to worry about.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
