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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
