WALLEYES ON LOBSTER

4 posts in this topic

ANYONE HAD ANY LUCK FISHING FOR WALLEYES ON LOBSTER. I'VE HAD GOOD SUCESS ON OPENER BUT NEVER PERSUED WALLEYES AFTER THAT. I'VE HEARD ON THIS LAKE THAT ALOT OF WALLEYES ARE WEED DORMANT. IT DOESN'T HAVE ANY "GREAT" STRUCTURE FOR WALLEYE AND HAS MANY PREDATORS ROAMING AROUND. BUT I KNOW THEY'RE THERE. aT THIS TIME OF YEAR I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO TARGET THEM BECAUSE THEY ALWAYS SEEM TO BE ON THE MOVE OR IN A SPECIFIC AREA OF THE LAKE. ANY HELP WILL DO THANKS

My inlaws have a cabin on the lake and I too have struggled to find fish later in the season. Last year we caught many of them off of their dock (1-3 per night) from May until mid July. After that they seemed to disappear. Often times we can pick up a stray walleye when out jigging weedlines, but this never developes into any kind of pattern. This year has been more of a struggle so we have been visiting other lakes.

Because I live on Lobster I know this to be a fact. There are no fish in Lobster, they all left. You need to try another lake smirk.gif Ok all kidding aside, the water temps are still in the high 50's (59 as of yesterday) give it a couple of more weeks then look for some very guick breaks, if you are framiliar with Lobster you know where they are or a sunken island ( not the one by 114) combine that with some redtails from Christophersons (8 dollars per dozen) not to bad compared to last year when they were hard to get and once you put the two together you should have a couple of weeks of good, not great walleye fishing on Lobster. Lobster has a average lift count for walleyes and there are lakes in the area that produce far more walleyes than Lobster.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article
