Walker\Longville Area

9 posts in this topic

I was just wondering if anybody on this awesome spearing site has any good spearing Ideas for the walker\longville area.I have access to a cabin up there and was looking for spearing spot. One lake on the map that looked good was ox yoke lake. But I'm not familiar with the area so any help would be grateful. Thanks

I was also thinking the same question. But its more for my now retired father who has a lake home on Leech. Can you spear on Leech or not. Any input would be great. No worries about us setting up on your spots or anything because IF we do go spearing it may only be one or two times this year in a portable.

thanks,

mr

Meat-Run you can spear leech lake. There are quite a few spots we have speared nice pike in. Just hit one of the bays and you should be alright!!

If you want some good action Ox Yoke and Webb can be pretty good. There are some monsters in Mule and Blackwater. The old baitshop by Mule used to have pictures of some giants that were taken on that lake. A couple muskies were taken too (angling). Not much for numbers but definitely some nice sizes.

You can't go wrong with many lakes up that way. They either have numbers or size on pike. It's just a really great place as far as the resource goes...clear and productive waters. Like no other in the state. You can find good walleye, bass, pike, or panfish lakes anywhere in that area.

Mule and Blackwater get the occasional muskie. It's believed to be transplants, cause they weren't stocked there. Blackwater has some Ciscos in it and both lakes have very abundant game fish populations, so I'm sure they could do well. There are lots of lakes around Longville that have historically had musky.

Spearing is open on both lakes. There is excellent clarity and some really good vegetation. If you're out for size and do decide to try Mule or Blackwater, on Mule I'd try the north end narrows or one of the steep transitions on the east or west shorelines. On Blackwater, there are some good reed patches to set up next to a 67 foot drop off. It is a STEEP dropoff. I would try there if I was a betting man.

Has anyone tried Pine lake? It is located about 2 miles south of Leech near Whipolt on Hwy 200. I've fish that lake every summer. It's very clear, good weeds and lots of pike. Wondering if anyone has tried it?

Tried spearing in Walker Bay this past weekend but the water was quite cloudy, although I still managed two fish. Did I just hit a bad spot or does walker bay get like that? Anyone have any suggestions on other areas of leech to try spearing?

Thanks

Joe

      Hmmm...getting a prosthetic foot and attaching hooks now

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.
