2006 walleye season

7 posts in this topic

I have never had the pleasure of fishing URL, however I follow your forum pretty close. Maybe I'm afraid to stop for fear I might have to partake in this clamping ritual I keep reading about. One of these days however on the way to or from LOW I've got to give those slabs a try.

Now for my question; with the upcoming walleye season in 2006 are any of the resorts expanding their accomadations to take care of the crowds that will most likely take part in this new walleye venture? I'm basically wondering about the open water season regarding boat slips, dockage etc. Continued good luck to all of you slab slayers. Bill

Thanks Neiko. I would think this new walleye season would provide not only some great fishng, but some tremendous economic oppurtunities as well. I've seen Westwind on our trip to LOW, looks like a nice place. good luck with the slabs. bill

I was just up to URL and fished out of Agassiz on the 10th and 11th and they told us that they hoped to have their lodge and resort available by the 2006 Walleye season see www.aglodge.com

Thanks Shooter: It looks as if things are progressing there as we head past on the way to LOW. Have you or anyone else heard any news regarding when the DNR may start to discuss or bring to light the regulations for '06? Good luck, and hang on. Bill

      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 .

      We've got the old Lakemaster chip in our Lowrance 10" unit (circa 2008-ish, I think).  The Lowrance is the generation before the HDS, but I forget the exact model.  Since getting that Lakemaster chip, Lakemaster was bought by Humminbird and their chips are now only compatible with Humminbird  units.  You might be able to find a used chip somewhere, but be sure it's from before the Humminbird acquisition.   Navionics is the only other option for Lowrance that I know of. Regardless, there have been several 1-foot soundings done in the recent past, so be sure that whatever you get has that level of detail and you should be satisfied.   There are several old threads on GPS chips for LOTW...use the search box at the upper right of your browser and type in "LOTW chip" (without the quotes).
