Walleyes in the area

7 posts in this topic

Well, I'm pretty fished out on the panfish, crappies, perch and small large mouth bass. I've been fishing Bebee alot and catching a ton of fish everytime out. Today we caught 6 perch, 9 sunnies, and 11 crappies for the 3 of us. I tried Charlotte recently for some eyes with no luck. I was just outside the north bay on the drop off. I tried 13,14,17 FOW with jigging spoons, pimples, and deadlines with fat heads. I was right on the weed line.

I want to start going after some eyes now. What lakes are working for walleyes right now? What kind of structures are good? What are good techniques and baits?

firetigers, do you have a 4wheeler? if so then the far north side of pulaski is a good start.

Jigginjim, No wheeler. Just a 100 lb clam I tug around. I saw on the pulaski reports that guys are driving out now and there are roads. I have a mid-sized 4 door sedan. Can I drive to that part of the lake from the landing? I read about the springs on the west side by the park to stay away from. How far of a walk would it be? thx

1/2 mile or so, I don't have a wheeler either and I took one look and decided i'm too lazy to walk that far...

the roads cut right through the middle of pulaski so you won't be near any of the springs. and you should be fine with a mid-size truck, there are much bigger ones out there everyday.

Ya I've tried a few times around the island. All I've ever caught is a couple small 6"-8" waldos.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
