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.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      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.
