Jighead, I don't think anyone can predict late July, fishing is generally tough then. If you're staying at Idlewild, Tim Synder is a pretty good resort guide, I would think he could lead you in the right direction. Ask your questions about where to fish or whats happening a week or so before you head here, there should be help- available. good luck guts

Some of the deep water reefs have been good at that time but yes, the fishing is tough in late July. Try planning a trip for June. Best luck we have had are from Memorial weekend to the first weekend in July. Walleyes will come shallower then esp. in the AM or late PM

You do have the option to take the Kettle Falls Truck Protage and fish Rainy. Lots of Kabby guides head over ther in the mid to late summer.

you could go through pine tree cove up there.... went up that way last summer in july, it would have been a great trip if 3 different fronts hadn't blown through. there is a guide named wade who is really good out on kab, who picked us up from pine tree cove resort. the fishing was excellent, great cabins too. its also where levern fishes out of. he is 91 now and he is famously known up there....

We were up at Pine Tree Cove last July too, right when the hot weather hit. Fishing was very slow. Gonna give it another try, possibly in August. Good luck!

      And just like that, it's open water time.... Got a few small ones today... felt good to have the long rod out again

      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
