It might be a while before you can fish Walker Bay with all of this snow. It had only been ice covered for a couple of days before it hit. I have heard of a couple people trying different parts of the main lake with up to six inches. However this was before the snow, someone I know was going to give a couple places a try this morning, so I will report back if I hear anything positive.

There has been some traffic on the west side out towards Sand Point. As far as the rest of the lake it is hard to tell, but I have no seen anyone out there yet. Im guessing there will be more signs of life this weekend.

What kind of structure do the walleyes relate to in walker bay. I've caught some on the humps but I haven't tried anywhere else. Do they relate to shoreline structure as well?

Thanks

Joe

i was out there yesterday, fishing was slow. only managed a few jumbos. still a few slush pockets. my dads brand new house got destroyed coming in, it is on skis and the front corner got hooked and broke the back off the bottom which caused the canvas to rip all the way up the side. so that was not so fun. we fished out by sand point.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
