Any walleye reports??

Recommended Posts

Is anyone having any luck with the walleyes in the area? I'm not looking for anyone to share the lakes they are fishing and honestly hope you don't, but what's working for you now? I have only been out once recently (about a week ago) and it was fairly slow. A friend and I fished from 8-midnight and had five that we kept. We were pulling shallow running suspending crankbaits over newly developing weeds between 10 and 12 feet on a break. Water temps were right around 60 degrees at the time. I'd guess with the warm up this week, the bite will be pretty good! I have a little time this week to fish so hopefully I'll be able to add to this at some point!

Finding fish in the weeds, shallow water, 10 feet and less. Powerbait worms and lizards and Gulp 5 inch leeches, behind spinner rigs have been working for me. Flip rigging has been the best tactic.

Tring to pull or cast livebait up that shallow has been a waist of time rebaiting, because of the pesky pan fish hanging out in the same depths.

My dad and I have found the walleyes right off the weed edge trolling lindy rigs with leeches. Caught most of the fish between 16-20 feet of water. We went out 3 nights in a row and got 6 walleyes and a few northerns. Biggest was a fat 23" that was full of eggs still, she was leaking them onto my hand when I was taking the hook out. She made it back into the water to lay those eggs.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      It’s still a blast to fish

      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
