Any descent walleye spawns going on??

5 posts in this topic

Hey all, I was just wondering if there are any world class walleye spawns going on in the BWCA or Internationall Falls areas?? I just got back from Depere, WI on the fox river and I want to hit one more walleye spawn where there is a good chance on landing into a trophy. I want to try something different other than the fox river or the menominee river like I do every year. Those two rivers are getting old and it is a long drive across the entire state. Thanks for any help with my walleye sickness!

Most walleye fishing up in NE Minn is closed now until the May opener. Around Baudette, the Rainy River season stays open longer, however, and the RR starts putting out big pigs as soon as the ice goes off, right about now. You should check the Rainy River board here on FM for current info.

Rainy River is really about the only show right now. Make sure you read the Rainy River forum so you dont drive all that way to find mudd and no bite.

It might be worth your time to check out the Missippi right now by Red Wing. I've never fished it but the big girls usually spawn below the dams, wing dams about now. Sorry it's not Northern MN, but it's fairly close to where you're at.

I wish I could make it up to the Rainy for the first time, but I hear it closes on the 14th. Not gonna work for me this year. Nolte, I hear ya on the missi, I have been down there before and it is a descent bite, I was just looking for new spots to try before the spawn is over. I think I am stuck with the missi for the rest of the year! I just hate that murky water though.

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      I would think so.  You still need a passport too.  Seems like the only change is loosening up on the mandatory check in.  You only have to if they ask you too.   I never took an RABC to exempt me from the check in requirement before this change.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has released a draft operational plan for management of the Sand Dunes State Forest, located in central Sherburne County, about 3 miles west of Zimmerman. The draft operational plan will undergo a 45-day public review from June 21 to August 4. Members of the public are invited to read the draft plan on the DNR’s website and provide comments through an online form; both are located at www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes. The DNR will hold a public meeting to discuss the plan on July 10, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Big Lake High School cafeteria; 501 Minnesota Ave., in Big Lake. Members of the public will be invited to interact with DNR staff and learn more about the draft plan. The meeting will begin with an open house, followed by a brief DNR presentation about the plan and, conclude with an open microphone session. Last summer, the DNR organized a group of local residents, government leaders and other interested people to provide perspective and advice on management issues in the Sand Dunes State Forest. The group held six open meetings, and there were often additional people in the audience who joined in the discussion. These citizen-centered discussions helped shape the new draft plan released this week. Sand Dunes State Forest, established by the Minnesota Legislature in 1945, includes about 6,000 acres of land owned and managed by the state. It features pine plantations, rare sand dunes, wetlands, woodlands, oak savanna and prairie and is home to more than two dozen rare plants and animals. The forest is a popular recreation destination for hikers, horseback riders, hunters, campers and others. For ongoing news regarding Sand Dunes State Forest and future meetings of the advisory group, sign up for email updates . Enter an email address and then select Sand Dunes State Forest from the drop down list.  Visit www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes for notes and resources related to the meetings.
