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.

      Thank you for the zip code, for the last 3 years I lose the tailgator reception at night around 8 I never know what zip code to try I sure hope it works.  All day everything is fine, evening comes I lose signal.

      I used the thumbnail method with all but the heavier split rigs.  If you're doing a bunch it gets sore.  I then use a small eye glass screw driver.  Once I get it started to remove the old one I slip the new one in behind it.  One falls off and the other on.   Careful, those small trebles are hard to hang onto and sticky sharp.

      really neat to see the lake from the aerial view!  Cool to see all the roads and the paths out there.  Kinda fun to look at the road systems and name what resort they are from...

      Was just out on ice and a big difference from yesterday.  Most water has found a hole or two or ten to drain back down.  Minimal water on the lake once get away from the accesses at least on the north end of the lake.  Houses should be fine unless in a low spot with no holes anywhere near.

      Did not like how they ended the reg and OT, they got a shot to go in Reg but in neither situation did it look like we had a plan other than "somebody make a play"... But overall I really like this group.
