Walleye- 1st week of June

2 posts in this topic

Hey guys- I was wondering if anyone can provide some specific tips for cathching walleye on a regular basis on the Canada side 1st week of June. Last year we caught all the pike and bass anyone could ask for, but only a limited number of walleye. Mostly fished ash bay and alexandria bay. Caught some walleye in northwest bay. Any tips? Last year we took a day trip to the Pipestone/Clearwater chain and limited out easily of Jackfish fishing a jig and minnow. Would love to get into some good action on Rainy.... any help is appreciated. Locations, tips, techniques, etc. We will be staying at Camp Narrows.

Thanks

First of all welcome to FM, Pikehunter. Good to have you aboard.

Some of the best creel survey reports last year, in terms of numbers, were the first week of June on Rainy. Those reports however were from the north and northeast sides and the Minnesota side. Those who had the most success were casting light jigs in shallow water.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      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?
