Maple Lake (NOT by Reno Lake)?

4 posts in this topic

Heading up to a friends cabin in a couple of weeks and was wondering if Maple Lake (NOT the one by Reno) is any good for walleye? Any pointers on where to find them?

Thanks!

Which Maple lake are you referring to? There's probably a dozen or more in Minnesota.

Sorry, could have been more specific I guess. I'm referring to Maple Lake that's 5 miles east of Osakis and just North of Highway 27 in Todd County.

Thanks

it's a nice lake, but different to fish. it has all the fish you can want to catch, if you want only walleyes, good luck. It does have them though, so nothing is impossible. it's a shallow lake so work the weed lines and such. or maybe try some jigs or crank baits.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
