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.

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
