HC Eye Hunter,

I assume that you're signed up. We do not start giving out that number until we reach 50 touring teams.

Hopefully any of this years teams will post here and let everyone know that they are on the "Trail".

How do you like this years schedule? What stop are you most looking forward to?

Tom....We are on for the year. I do like the schedule and am looking forward to another enjoyable tournament season. Actually all the stops are very appealing and should make for a great season!!

If any of you guys have ever wanted to fish a great walleye circuit I would highly recemend the MWT. You will meet some great guys and have the opportunity to learn and sharpen your walleye techniques.

We have 55 Touring Teams signed up plus some single event teams on hand. We are sold out at 75 teams so if you are thinking of fishing the MWT this year you will want to send in your entry shortly.

I will definitely agree with HC that this is a great series to enter. Any teams that have entered for single events, thinking the series might not fill up, might want to reconsider your plans because I can all but guarantee that it will fill up again this year. My father and I fished the series last year and had a blast. We have fished other tournaments in the past on none are in the same league as the MWT. Very professionally run yet enjoyable for the casual angler. The casual angler will be amazed at how much knowledge they have gained by the end of the year by fishing this series. It still amazes me that nobody can catch a walleye while pre-fishing yet are able to miraculously locate and catch quality fish on tournament Sunday.

Use2Be...I agree with you in that it's very interesting that none of us can catch fish during prefishing, but come Sunday we all become much better fishermen....I think the key is that we are able to listen to all the techniques that aren't working at the rules meeting and then we go back to where we are staying, throw out all of our copies of Walleye-Insider, burn all of our fishing DVD's, discard all of our saved waypoints, head down to the local bar, buy the locals a few cocktails, have them share some information about what it truly takes to catch fish on "their" lake and then get back on the water Sunday morning and just pound them!!! laugh.gif

How many teams are signed up so far? Usually there is a list of teams posted on the website already. I always look forward to looking at the list on the website and seeing who is signing up.

Should be another good season on the trail.

We have 58 Touring Teams signed up at this point. It's not to late to sign up for doing the entire Trail. We are also accepting single event entries at this time. The Touring Team list should get posted on our website sometime this week.

We are still in need of some teams for each event so if you want to sample the Minnesota Walleye Trail and what it is all about check out our website or better yet sign up for one of our tournaments in your area.

      Good morning all,   I will be heading up to camp with a couple family members at Devils Track Campground this weekend. I've caught plenty of smallies from shore there, but I was interested in the walleye population. This time, I will have my boat with me. Not looking for any honey holes, just some recommendations on what they may be biting on, or what depth they may be hanging in. I see some groups of islands near the south side of the lake... anybody know anything about fishing around those?    Any information is much appreciated. thanks in advance and have a great week!!

      Been pretty stable in the low 70s.  73, 74, depending on time of day..   With the cool nights, was 55 last night, and moderate days in the 70s, it seems likely to stay there.   Pleasant for water sports.

      I've heard some discouraging information lately as I chat with folks at the bow range. I was looking forward to the unlimited antletless harvest in 601 so I spent some time scouting the rather small WMAs we have and found some good sign. Word is that although the pressure isn't too bad for deer during archery season, the squirrel hunters will be thick. Not only will they crack at one in the tree you're in with a .22 but they just walk all over the place with no regard to your being there and ruin the woods as far as any possibility of deer traffic. Is it really that bad?    The problem is that our WMAs are so tiny that a few squirrel hunters can trash the whole morning hunt easily.    I love small game hunting too but anytime I'd see a hunter in a tree I would travel very far around him out of respect for other hunters. I realized last waterfowl season the majority of metro hunters don't have that respect though.

      Thanks, it was a great morning. Now that I'm addicted to the fly, what do I do with all that expensive spin gear??

      Any updates on water temps?

      No idea the brand, it's an 8 inch, it's in good shape needs a sharpening I would imagine.  Haven't used it for a couple years

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?

      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.
