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.

      The ice is fine. I have a lot of standing water because my house is dark color. Come up and enjoy this weather. Ice is 24-30".a little snow left out on ice.

      Nick, you did a great job finding good fish for everyone.  Wished I woulda brought at least one rod and my flasher for the short time I was there.  But it was good to meet y'all face to face.   I got a hankering for some pannies now.  Might have to look for some tomorrow.

        I had the same experience today. Tons of little gills and very few big ones pike were not going on anything on tip ups today though. Wasn't fishing your area but figured I'd chime in. I had anywhere from 17-29 inches of ice with some water on top ice is great yet.

      Still plenty of good ice on Bartlett Lake today. 16" where I was at. No standing water on the ice yet. The shorelines were in good shape, too. Too bad it will probably all be trash by Tuesday.   The bluegill were biting well this morning, but for every decent sunny I had to throw back about eight potato chips.   The Northern were slamming tip-ups baited with shiners. Too bad for me I brought suckers. I caught a couple Northern, and a 16" largemouth as well. I would have liked to get out to the airport lake tomorrow morning (after a trip across the river to get some shiners  ), but I have other things to do. The backwaters around Winona will just have to wait until next December.
