With patience, Pokegama can be darn good. If you have specific questions, you can e-mail me at info@tightlinesguiding.com.

Pokegama and wabana are both decent lakes for walleye tthey are alittle more difficult to fish because of the water clarity, they are both clear lakes. the nice thing about both these lakes is the diversity of fish you catch on these two bodies of water walleye,bass, northern and perch.

some other smaller lakes around our area are Sand, bowstring, jessie and cutfoot are all good lakes to fish for walleye. you can check out our web page on wwwmnfishingpros.com and go to lakes and resorts to get whatever you need. you can also e-mail me for any other additional info you need

My wife, daughter's, and I love going out for a day on the Wabana/Bluewater/Trout lake chain. Granted with the low water, it maybe diffcult/impossible to access Bluewater or Trout from Wabana. If you get on Trout, about half way up the lake on the west side you will see the Joyce Estate buildings. It's a very neat spot to stop and stretch and look around. Tons of panfish in Wabana and the Trout lakes as well as both species of bass. What we usually do is picnic/swim during the day and in the evening set up on a sunken island or under water point on Wabana and slip bobber fish with leeches. You never know what you'll get....walleyes, sm lm bass, bluegills, even the occassional northern. There are lake trout and splake in the Trout lakes and laker's in Bluewater, but it's hard to catch them. I've never strictly targeted 'eyes on Wabana but know other guys who do pretty good in June out there.

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat

      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
