Early June trip

2 posts in this topic

I am coming up to LOW the 1st week of June and staying at Ballards resort. Being it will be our 1st trip there,what kind of tackle will we need to bring? How far will we need to venture to get on Walleyes? We usually do the same trip to Lac Seul, but we want to stay in Minnesota and give this a try. Any help or suggestions would be great! We are bringing our own boats and we do have a couple older guys with us so we dont want to have to run a long ways to get some fish for them. Any Crappies in that area that time of year? Thanks again!

The Gap or along the edge of the channel in the Four Mile Bay would be a good bet on that side of the lake around then. Just anchor and jig, jig, jig. You might also want to try REAL shallow along the edge of any weeds you can see anywhere along the shore from 4 Mile Bay out past Morris Point and westward. If you try this, you can try a ton of presentations like: slow trolling or drifting Lindy Rigs, trolling shallow running cranks, or anchoring and pitching a small jig/minnow, or slip bobber. Weather permitting, it shouldn't be too hard to find fish without having to travel far at all. Good luck.

      Blue Ribbon in Oakdale. Kathy's Bait off Rice and Maryland. If you go up north and drive through the cities, Vados off Central and highway 10 is the best.

      I usually go up north, or stop by my Holiday to grab waxies or some small crappie minnows. But where in the metro can a guy get some small/medium suckers or shiners? I am closer to the south metro and work in Woodbury. I don't think Cabelas or Gander carry them anymore.

      I would also suggest small sucker, I also had good luck with just a crappie minnow on the hook. Depends on the lake really.

      White jig heads with a white tube, if that's not working use a buzz bomb with a sucker head or tail on the treble
