Night fishing

4 posts in this topic

I am going to Winnie the first weekend in October, and have been doing so for many years. We have never done well fishing at night time and have always been told Winnie just isn't a night time lake. I was wondering if anyone here would have any suggestions for catching nightime walleyes or if it is just a lost cause.

I have tried at night more then once thinking the same thing and i have had no luck. I have had luck at dusk and just a little bit after but not through out the night. I have tried all seasons for this also with no success. I have not clue why they don't i figure if they can find the lure in the muddy mississippi they should have no problem locating it in winnie. but that is not the case.

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
