Echo Trail Lakes??

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice on what lakes to checkout for walleyes, trout, and big pike that are located on the echo trail. I am planning on doing a trip this fall and just hitting as many lakes as I can that have portages into them from the trail. I would like to explore some lakes that hold bigger walleyes, big pike, and some trout. Thanks for any help!

When will you be taking your trip??

If you call my shop, (218-365-4744) before 10 am daily, I can give you some names of lakes.

Too much to post on the forum.

I will most likely be taking my trip sometime in late september or early october. Past mid october, I will be living in my treestand chasing the swamp bucks! I will give a call sometime in the morning to your shop. Thanks. Any other suggestions from others who have had good luck on some of those walk-in lakes off of the trail??

Trout is not necessary, but I would like to be on a body of water known for producing some bigger walleyes and pike. I would like to try for some lakers if possible though. I will be trying Burtside sometime this fall, but little out of the way lakes with bonus trout fisheries are always fun to try.

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
