Weekend Fishing Report

7 posts in this topic

Well I went up to Red on Saturday. Found a spot about 7 miles on Hillman's road. Fished in 13 Feet of water. Although fishing was a bit slow, managed to catch 7 slabber crappies and a couple of small walleyes. Was a bit windy, but was a good trip all together for a day trip. Didn't get home till 2am!

Went to Winnie on Monday. Went in at High Banks Resort for 4 miles and fished in 22 feet of water. I must say the lady at the resort was very helpful! She put us right on the fish. Caught a bucket full of nice size perch and 3 keeper walleyes. Had the camera and boy the schools just kept coming in! I will have to say that the fishing was a lot more exciting! Right at sunset, the fish turned on and I couldn't keep my hook baited fast enough. I plan on going back soon!!!!!! It is closer than red, and you can keep 6 walleyes. Well I will have to wait now till Friday to do anymore fishing, but you can bet I will be going again!!!

Good report and good to hear you had some action. It's always good to come home with dinner when you make a road trip. Good luck fishing this winter!

I live in Hibbing. The trip to Winnie is only about an hour for me. It was my first time there and I was surprised on how close it was. I will definately be making another trip up there real soon. Would like to go next week when the weather will be nice, but I would go anytime because I am a fishing addict!

HOW FAST DO YOU DRIVE? I'm from Hibbing and have done the Hibbing to GR trek often lately, and that is about 45 minutes. I'd say Winnie is about another 45 minutes to 1 hour away. It's a great lake to fish, though, that's for sure.

I drive fast! Need to get to the fish. I also checked miles and it is about 66 miles. I checked mapquest and it is 46 miles to Deer River and from there it is about 20 miles. I don't know how fast you drive, but its about an hour for me, maybe an hour and 5 or 10 minutes. LOL!!!

There is no way Winnie is 45 minutes to an hour away from Rapids unless you are driving a riding lawn mower!!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif I can drive from Grand Rapids to Bemidji in an hour!

It is only 34 miles from Hibbing to Grand Rapids. When they get the bypass done around Coleraine and Bovey that will be really nice!

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
