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 often run into rusty crayfish when I'm in the boundary waters.  I tried to dig up some solid info on them but are they safe to eat? same as southern crayfish i wonder?  Suck the heads and everything?  It'd be a nice side for a pan full of fish in the BWCA.

      Maybe that's my problem, I'm not trying shallow enough.  Good report and hopefully I'll get a good report after my four day fishing outing this weekend.  Hoping accesses stay safe enough.  Wednesday night around 22-23:00 is supposed to start freezing and other then a few hours on Thursday and a few hours during the day on Monday we will be below freezing the next 10 days.  I just hope as its freezing people are not out there rutting up the ice and it can freeze smooth for safer travels.    BB did you do better with minnows/spoons/jigs/wax worms?
