I have been hitting these lakes a lot and I have not been able to locate a walleye bigger than 12 inckes. I have had pretty good luck on these lakes in past years but not this year. Fish don't seem to be in usual spots. Is anybody having better success and what depth and time?

Thanks

I caught some nice ones on white bear last night including a 26 incher.....17 FOW about 7pm out from bellaire beach. Just get away from the huge crowd out there and deeper than 15 FOW and you should get some fish

I've found that after dark is the key for catching decent fish(at least for me it is) I've had my luck doing the following....

1. Be in depths of 15-25 FOW after dark

2. Glow blue,red or green jig of some sort with a fathead about 1-2 feet off the bottom.

3. If they don't like that use a small-medium size buckshot tipped with a minnow head.

I've caught some decent walleyes walking out from matoska boat launch and bellaire. I've fished in front of the VFW a few times and got some nice crappies but not one walleye.

Also if possible stay away from the (small towns) out there.

I hope this helps a little!

north red river's gave some really good advice for white bear. MrSchrute, I would not hesitate to go out on the bear after work if that's the only time you can fish. I heard from one of my buddies he's only getting fish out there between 9 and 11pm....weird but that's the report. Maybe traffic/noise quiets down out there by that time and the fish turn on. Good luck guys!

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.

      Any clue how it started? Really a bummer. Just remembering some of the fun times there.

      Gents, Anyone been to OT lately that could comment on ease of ice travel. Snow depth, drifts and ice.  Would traveling nearly anywhere be acceptable with exception to rivers/creeks?

      Went by yesterday. Just a pile of steel sheeting and ashes. Sad.
