Would appreciate any tips for walleye and crappie from shore come the next open water season. Thanks

Hey bellyup,

For walleyes people fish from the pier up at the state park, as well as the pier down by Paul and Babe on the South end of the lake. People do manage a few from these locations, and they are probably your best bet in the area...

For crappies, there are a ton of little lakes that you can catch crappies from shore at, especially in the Spring. Just look around for a small lake that holds pannies, and see where you can walk on the shoreline.

Hope that helps!

You could also fish the river between lake Irving and Bemidji and catch some spring walleye! grin.gif

If we don't get more snow or don't have a rainy spring we will probably be fishing from shore with you - or maybe a duck boat if we are lucky. frown.gif The spots previously mentioned are also what I would consider your best bets.

Thanks Matt Breuer, Woodman, and Otter,

I appreciate the tips and plan to give it a try this spring. Would be gratefull to here of a couple more spots because I plan to do a lot of fishing this summer and would certainly have time to give them a try also.

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
