Did fair on Ida over the weekend on Walleyes. Size was on the small size but did manage to snag a 20" and a 23". Haven't done any spearing myself but I tie into some very nice northerns fishing for walleyes every summer.

I have set up for northerns during the day. They can be found all over the place, just look for a good weeds around 12' of water. I usually would spend the majority of my time northerns on the weed flat out from the bullrushes in front of the old Camp Omaha.

where to start. The best bite for us was between 6am and 630am. and 5pm till about midnight. we fished about 20 feet of water. Caught some really nice fish. half dozen over 20, dozen over 12 inches. and a handful under 12 inches. all released back. too much fun for a couple of days fishing.

Hey jiggin, where about were you at. I am usually out south of the south access, nothing but little ones ( under 12" ) getting pretty discouraging.

I was near the northwest side before the bay. Saw some nice ones on camera by the public launch on the east side about 100 yards from shore on the drop off.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
