White Earth Lake - Fall Walleyes

5 posts in this topic

I used to fish eyes on White Earth when I was a kid (30 +years ago)and it was a fun lake during the summer. I want to try White Earth Lake for fall walleyes this year and see if the lake looks the same after all these years.

Does anyone know if White Earth lake is any good in the fall or am I just wasting my time? Ant tips would be greatly appreciated.

Fish with light line (4-6) and 1/8-1/4 oz lindy rig sinker. Use a crawler and fill it full of air and go as slow as you can. Get on the water an hour before sunrise and start trolling shallow on the breaks and work deeper as the sun comes up. They stick to those breaks like fat kids at the candy store. Key is air in the crawler to get them to float and stay as light and move slowly.

Rumor has it that WE is heating up a bit. Bait shop in Waubun reported some good reports being mentioned. I didn't have much luck last week - caught one 12 inch eye - couple bass and couple perch - none keeper size though. I was only out for about 4 hours and didn't get out until after 8am - so I'll blame that for my ineffectiveness. smile.gif

Thanks guys for the response. I'll be heading up around Mid-Sept and try Nite Crawlers. 30-years ago we always used minnows but I am willing to give Crawlers a try.

Thanks...I'll let you know how my trip goes when I get back.

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.

      Even in the metro the little bit of snow pack is insulating the ice pretty well so far. I've been out 3 days in a row and haven't noticed any significant melting. The forecasted rain for the next few days will probably change things a little.
