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.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
