Walleye #1

Suggestion??

6 posts in this topic

I am heading up to URL the weekend of Feb. 9th. Any suggestions for resorts that we can head out onto the lake from, get some quality fishing info and reports, bait, directions, etc.??

Also how is the travel once you get off of the main roads of the lake?

I'd go out of Hillmans. Buddy always has the latest and greatest report and they will let you know what is/isnt working.

We were out of West Wind Resort last weekend and did about the same on Walleye numbers but there were only 3 of us so about 15 a piece over 2 1/2 days. We stayed in the highway cabin overnights and had a very nice, very clean house, but they provided no support. We asked for the holes to be cleaned out on Sunday as the edges were sharp after freezing over at night. The guy looked at them and said they were fine, but again we asked and he declined. We normally would have left them a $50.00 tip especially with how clean the house was but the attitude left them zero. Otherwise very impressed with West Winds. We already made our reservation there for next years. MLK weekend. Even though we were 8 1/2 miles straight out we still were only in 10 FOW. All walleyes were between 15 1/2 to 20 inches. No small ones and no large ones. We also caught no perch, no crappie and no northerns. They have a bait/tackle store on-site and one of the nicest heated fishing cleaning rooms I have found.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
