Walleyes

5 posts in this topic

Do you think it is best to go to Red or Winnie for Eyes? Have never fished Winnie, so am unsure of anything out there. How is the night bite, or isn't there one?

If you have never fished walleye on Winnie and you want Walleyes, I would go to Red Lake. You could train a monkey, in 5 minutes to catch a walleye on Red Lake :=)

Some may say there is no nite bite on winnie, but we have done pretty well over the years. Mostly camera fish, but's that's not a bad thing!

Just got back from Red this past weekend. You must be mobile. We rented a sleeper and was confined to that one area. Plus with a -35 windchill fishing outside was not really an option. I really wish I would have went to winnie instead. For the extra 1.5 hour drive for 2 eyes is not worth it. You better hope you can get on the crappies to justify the trip. In our 2 days we caught 15 eyes and zero, zilch crappies. Mobility is the key!!!

      I change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.

      Joe The DNR guy has a point.  There is a distinction between taxing the general population, and charging a fee (call it a tax if you want to) that only hits the folks that use the service.       So trout stamp money is used to provide trout fishing opportunities.   The trout stamp or fishing license isn't a tax since you choose to pay it in order to engage in the activity that the money provides.       They have a certain amount of money to spend to provide or enhance trout fishing opportunities.   Planting lake trout in a lake that already gets stream trout might not be a good use of that money.

      How often do you change out braided lines on your ice reels? Finally changed my out, not sure how long it has been on the reel or if needed to change it.
