Where are the walleyes

2 posts in this topic

I've spent most of the summer fishing bass, now my brother is coming up from Iowa and wants to fish some walleye. We're going to head out the 14th thru 16th. It will give me a chance to use some of the knowledge picked up at T.O.'s walleye clinic. Was planning to head to Tetonka, which I've fished a few times, and Washington, which I've never fished. Maybe Madison too. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. It's been a few years since we fished fall walleyes together, hope to show him a good time.

Thanks for your help.

During the day, look for the 'eyes to be responding to the Lindy Rig and Floater set-up tipped with a crawler or minnow that I demonstrated at my seminar in anywhere from 2 - 20' of water. It will take some looking. During low light, casting crank baits in shallow or pitching jigs and leeches will get you some action.

Good Luck!

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
