Burntside Lake

9 posts in this topic

Tried posting this in the Ely forum with no luck.  Thought I'd try my local group.  

 

Heading to Burntside with the family for the 2nd week of June.  I will have the boat with.  Anyone have any tips on Walleye that time of year.  I have never fished that area before. 

 

Not looking for places to fish just general lake info and patterns for late spring walleye.  Thank You!!

I would agree the great outdoors is a good starting point.  I've only fished it for lake trout in the winter.  Although I hear it's got a good eye population.  Sure is a pretty place to fish...

Fishing Burntside can be a love/hate relationship, so don't get too discouraged if you don't get on something right away.  Also, it's typically not a numbers game, but when you get something you're usually pretty darn happy with the size.

 

Keep your baits away from the boat is my best advice.  Fish can be at almost any depth, out there especially.  I don't normally fish walleye out there but from what I've heard, subtle presentations are best.

If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
