Trip advice

4 posts in this topic

Thinking about a trip to V next summer and have not been there since the mid 1990's. Plan on fishing mostly for walleyes, but would also be spending some time chucking muskie baits depending on how the walleye fishing is going. My question for some of you guys who have fished the lake for a number of years, if you could only fish one week in June, July or August for walleye and muskies, what time period would it be. I know this is a tough question because things change from year to year, and we are talking about two different species of fish, but i am looking for your general impressions.

Thanks

I have fished the lake in august for about 7 years now and have to say the walleye bite always seems good. Don't fish muskie. We catch most of our fish in 15' and shallower.

I've always had my best luck in early June. Fish seemed the most "predictable". With that said, I can count on two hands how many times I've been up their in early June. crazy.gif

If you are chasing both muskie and walleyes I would have to say late July or August.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
