Due to an out-of-state trip that fell through, I have a week off in mid-August, still have the vacation time and the wife is on board with a fishing trip for a good portion of the week. Question is where to go? Where is some good fishing (mainly walleye) this time of year? How's Sag / Seagull this time of year? I haven't seen any updates lately. I can go anywhere just need to decide where. Haven't been to Sag in quite a few years, never been to Rainy.

So I have to pick a destination for the week of 8/15, I'm leaning toward the gunflint or VNP but I'm open to suggestion, any advise on where the actions hot?

Without a doubt I would hit Rainy Lake that time of year.

Thanks NL, heading to Kettle Falls Inn. Maybe take a whack on the big pond on the way back if the weather is cooperating.

Kind of last minute post, but anyone know any of the lakes in this area to chase eye's other than Seagull? Looks like some of the other bigger water like Gillis, Little Sag, Gabimichigami don't have walleye.

Leaving tonight...but thought I would ask anyways. It was a last minute trip.

If I understand the regs correctly you can't fish lakers in the summer in the BWCA?

That would be news to me.

Looks like your already gone but if not what is your entry point?

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps

      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.

      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.
