Walleye Bite is Steady!

3 posts in this topic

We just got off the water. It was a great day on the lake. Overcast with a light wind. It was almost a perfect walleye day. Gull has been very steady. Most of the fish are on the small side but they sure are gobbling up the redtail chubs. This morning the fish were pretty stacked up along the weedlines 12-16 feet. Tips of points and sunken humps produced the best action. Also caught a few bass mixed in. The whitefish chain has also been very good. The quality of the fish are a little better up there. On Whitefish most of the fish are hanging along the edges in 22-28 feet and redtails are the ticket there as well. This nice bite should continue so get out and try it. Our walleye guides have a few openings so please call if you would like to get in on the action. Good luck and be sure to stop in for the latest.

Thanks for the report Jason.

I'll be in your area Friday, September 8 - Monday, September 11 chasing down the 'eyes. Will your redtail availability still be good at that time?

We've had a great supply all season so far. Our supplier is pretty good but you never know with redtails. The best idea would be to call us the day before. We should be in good shape but if we are running low I'll do my best to point you in the right direction.

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?
