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.

      What are your guys thought on what this warm weather is going to do to the lakes. I hope it gets warm enough to settle the snow and allow the slush that is out there to freeze.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?

      I dont have any experience with this, but as i was reading response about dog needing the surgery on its other knee after. I wont if it is like a athlete, where they come back from an ACL and tear the other because favoring it so much? Just thinking out loud basically
