I've gone to Lizzie several times this summer. Pulling shad raps in 20-22 feet of water. Not getting great numbers of walleyes but nice size fish (18-20"). You'd pick up enough northerns to keep from getting bored and some of them have hit the 6-6.5lb mark. You might pick some up with spinners and live bait. Just go fast enough to out-pace the panfish.

Shae --

Hot tip just in -- White Earth has been very good in the morning. Got that from a buddy that has been doing well on Sunday a.m.

I also hear you can catch a few on Big C in tha a.m. -- but only if there is a little chop.

Good luck let me know how you did.

i will be honest about Bad Medicine. I have been on it for many years. When it heats up there is no better walleye lake around. Just have to be patient and work at it. I t has some monsters in it also. Deep and clear. Not sure where they are working the 12 ft water, but everyone is usually fishing trout so the good eye spots are usually pretty vacant. Nooner

Decided to go with Dahitman's advice and try White Earth today. My buddy, Scot, came up from Glencoe and I told him about the report of a morning bite on White Earth. Well, by the time I got him out of bed this morning and he told me we needed to find trolling motor batteries and breakfast we got on the lake a little after 11:30. So much for that morning bite! We did get sixteen walleyes on crawlers in 20-28 feet of water. Only five of them were keepers. He had to get back to Glencoe tonight so, we left before the best evening bite got going. Not fast and furious by any means but steady bite through the afternoon and evening. Thanks for the report Dahitman.

Has anyone been having luck pulling cranks lately? I fished Big C yesterday and got 2 almost immediately. One was a "Hitman Walleye" tongue.gif and the other was a nice 17"er. After that the pleasure boaters were out and moved in on us crazy.gif

We were running the weedlines in 12-18fow. I did notice some marks deeper (22-28 fow) but we couldn't get our baits that deep.

I tried Big C. yesterday too. None on cranks. Nine on bottom bouncers and crawlers. Three eaters and six dinks. Only one of Dahitman's 10 inchers so I don't think I was on any of his secret spots. Hey, I've, did you have anyone else in the boat with you?

Yes, I had one other passenger. I was driving the boat. We were out from around 11 to 3pm. Saw quite a few fishing and pleasure boats out there too!

If you were gone by 3:00, we didn't cross paths. I got there about 3:00 but the boat I was thinking about was a little later in the day.

      Welcome what are you training her for waterfowl upland or both? What is her name?

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
