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!!!

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
