Hows the bite?

7 posts in this topic

I have heard the bite is a bit slower up there this year due to the walleye population coming back. Is this true. I ma staying near Winnie for a few days and have been thinking about making a run to URL. This rumor has been spread by a guy I know down here. Any truth?

Two of us were there from monday afternoon until wednesday morning. Stayed on the ice the whole time other than a quick trip into the westwind tuesday night. We caught 11 crappies, smallest one 11 inches, biggest 13.5, easily our limit of walleyes, one 37 inch northern and a few pesky perch that were just a tad too small. Hope this helps.

Gun, is it true that you are not able to harvest walleye from URL. Understand that there is a moritorium on walleye. Can you tell I am from Wisconsin. Don't have the rules for MN yet. Qusetion is can you take walleye from URL? Sorry to be so inquisitive but if I am going to spend the day I would like to make the most of it.
Thanks

All walleyes caught on Red must be immediately released. No exceptions. They are still fun to catch.

I knew I should have put in the disclaimer that I am sure we caught our limit of walleyes but we kept NONE! It was very hard letting all those beautiful fish go back down the holes. The coloring on those fish was very pretty. I am excited to be able to one day take a few of them home and cook them up.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds

          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!
