Winter walleye

4 posts in this topic

I was planning a winter walleye fishing trip, what lake around Park rapids is good for walleye? No detailed spots needed but I was just wondering what is a good lake I have the best chance at some walleye? How is Potato, Long, or bad Medicine in the winter? Thanks

Long is my favorite winter lake, when i lived at home in the winter we used to always put a house out there and did very well for eater sized fish, did pull a few nice ones but the majority were 14 to 18". we always fished Crystal point and had the house in about 23 feet of water. as a bonus the ciscos would come through almost ever morning and provide some great action when things slowed. Fish hook is another great lake for early winter eyes. lots of eaters and a great shot at a BIG fish if you can stand crowds. Hope this helps, Jonah

Long in the summer can get pretty crowed on the weekends with lots or jet ski's and pleasure boaters but if you can get there on a weekday you usually be able to fish wherever you want.

      X2 for the big minnow net.  I got mine at Wally world or FF for $5.  Bend the wire frame to fit.

      You posted this on Friday so I don't know if by "next Saturday" you meant the 14th or this coming Saturday the 21st.    Osakis might be worth a look. Perhaps the Alex chain (Victoria, Geneva, LeHomme Dieu, Carlos, Darling.

      I agree. Completely careless! My uncle could have died...  It broke though he said the ice was to the hood of the truck. He crawled out the window... The window was level to the ice.... He stood up turned around and he said "All I could see was the cab. I watched it for about ten seconds and then it sank." He is extremely lucky to be alive. He still likes ice fishing but he walks on now.

      Fished 2 1/2 weeks solid for NP, and panfish.  Found lots of bites on larger suckers, but almost all were dropped.  Gold and silver shiners were preferred by all sizes.  Usually get the bigger ones on 4-8 suckers.

      I can't tell if it has a second dorsal fin or not based on those pictures, it could be laid down onto the back. But from the looks of it to me, I think its a Brook Silverside. We sample these in central MN streams and the Mississippi River. If you were in Wright County, definitely within its known range. Just a thought based on the picture
