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.

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
