Walleyes bitting on Lake Lizzie

12 posts in this topic

Have the walleyes found lake Lizzie yet this year or are they still trying to find it? Anyone had any luck? I havent been out to my fish house in a month and wondering if I am even going to again.

I have not heard much on Lizzie this year. That could be good or bad -- hard to say.

The crappies should be going soon on Lizzie.

BTW -- how did that bass boat work for you chasing walleyes this year?

I fished Lizzie Thurs and picked up one 23 incher two crappies and threw back several snot rockets. I was trying to stay away from old habits,sitting in the village and worked around the islands.I bought a sled to be more mobile and Thurs was a great day to punch holes.

Mike --

I noticed where you worked (e-mail) and remember talking to you about a boat last year and you said you love your bass boat.

Vehicles are driving all over Lizzie now. I was out there last Thurs on the sled & found 24-28 inches of ice everywhere.The snow has setteled & is like concrete. Tough to find banking material. There may be some drifting after the big wind Sat. At this point in the season everything in the Pelican-DL area is open to vehicle traffic.The access is a mess as usual but you can get on through Boes Beach Rd & Delmar Lammers property.

Before you burn down that ice house make sure you get me the cordinates on it. Should make for a good crappie hot spot. Oh yeah aluminum doesn't burn very good does it. Better just sink that thing because we sure as heck couldn't catch any fish in it.

-Love those bass boats!

Yah the way 620's take the water over the front I guess you could consider it a bass boat. :)Make sure you have sealed plano boxes or you will have a lot of rusty jigs.

Don't worry Mike I do have all brand new Plano's with the seal. The only thing I haven't figured out is how to keep them from floating out of my boat when I spear a wave short of keeping them in there compartment's. I know you've filled up your Ranger just as bad as I've filled up mine. What do you do to keep those Plano's in the boat and not floating past the motor?

Oh yeah by the way how was fishing this morning?

Go Bass Boats!

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I know back in the day, late 90's, people camped out along (approaches beside it)the forest road along Birch lake.  The road on the right, right before the dam on hwy 1 south of Ely.   I dont know all the legalities of thr forest there, they may or may not have been legal.

      The local state parks are also an option. Very modest yearly fee there also. Cliff

      Absolutely. I'd never get mad at a guy squirrel hunting while I'm deer hunting. Thats just public land hunting. Now if he shot at squirrels very close to me that's different. Maybe the guys I talked to had a bad experience but it isn't that frequent. That's what I hope anyway.

      Looks like the forest service campgrounds charge a modest fee.  But the are pretty nice.   Fall lake, fenske lake are a couple to consider

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      We have had a great week of fishing with a few showers and strong winds.

      Up in Canada, jigging on reefs and underwater humps are producing the best in 22-28 ft. with gold, pink and orange jigs. Pulling spinners is also an option on reefs in 22-24 ft of water.

      In Minnesota, walleyes and perch have been caught pulling spinners in 18-28 ft. West of Four Blocks, East of Crow Duck and East of Garden Islands, with black and gold being the most effective.

      On both sides, muskies have been aggressive when throwing buck tails and top waters on rock reefs.  The algae bloom has slowly begun to pick up, however, fish are still visible.

      We hope to see you soon!
