Warroad Area

6 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I was wondering what the walleye/perch bite was like in the Warroad area. We would be mainly after pike, but I know my dad would like a little walleye/perch action too. Anyone?

No one fishes this side of the lake?

Must be lonely out on the water!

I personally couldn't tell you any current reports...What I can tell you, anytime I've fished out of Warroad, I've NEVER been skunked...Of course I'm also counting the ever so favorable, Bottle Bass!!!

Thanks....I'm not looking for current reports...I'm just wanting to know in general...is there any kind of walleye/perch bite in the Warroad area to go along with the pike that come in late ice?

Hey doop, i'm pretty familiar fishing "around" the warraod area. Yeah it is mostly known for its northern bite late in the season, but you can also find some nice walleye and perch in the area. Last year my family and I were going to take our permanent out to 5 mile but we were caught up in a snow storm and ended up fishing the swift ditch area just a few miles out of warroad. We were fishing out 17-18 ft. and ended up doing pretty good. That next day my uncle caught a 10lb hog eye and had another one on that broke his line. But anyway there is good fishing that way but usually its best in 13-17 fow mid afternoon to sundown.

I just pulled back into the yard from warroad. We did fair on eyes out at 5 mile . We were there tues and wed probably caught 60 to 70 but were smaller. we did get some between 14" and 18" but had to work for them . we had our best luck in 18 to 21 feet of water. We were off the roads with the pickup quite a bit but it was tough going.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
