Heading up for our annual HouseBoat trip in 2 weeks, fishing tips?

5 posts in this topic

Every year I say "this year I'm going to do some fishing" but it never really happens. Card games, late nights at bonfire and the vikings game always seem to get in the way. wink.gif

Anyways, I'd like to head out a bit this year. We normally stay on the Northern part of the lake near Moccasin Point.

Any tips on depth, bait and time of day to fish for walleyes?

Thanks in advance.

Kylersk,

The walleyes are biting well!

lindy rigs baited with crawlers or minnows are the best presentations right now for me.

10 feet to 26 feet of water.

Cranks and spinners are also getting fish for those that have been using them.

I have been getting fish in almost all of the spots that I have tried this week. Depth seems to be the key.

Time of day does not seem to matter much.

Good Fishing!

Cliff

Thanks Cliff,

We didnt get out fishing as much as I had planned, but did manage to go out for a couple hours on Saturday. Packed 4 guys in a smaller lund, without trolling motor, and drifted back and forth off a reef. We managed to pick up a few 'eye' eaters, a nice pearch and a nice smallie. I however was skunked.

Saw ALOT of guys fishing for muskies. I believe there were 3 boats that fished the top of the reef during the time there.

Was there some sort of tournament this past weekend?

Yes there was a tournamant this weekend.

Sorry you did not get into a good bite. I have not done well on the reefs lately. Mostly shoreline related bite now, except for the crank bait bite which is going well for those that are doing it.

No reason to be sorry, we thought we did fairly well! Especially with how we were equipped, 4 guys packed in a small boat and no trolling motor. smile.gif

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
