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.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.

      I've seen a lot of people dragging raps for "crappies" before the opener

      Go down to MG and they will steer you in the right direction.  I know that  different release is used for braid.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.
