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 crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
