CutFoot Walleye Stripping

9 posts in this topic

I know it may be a bit early, but I was wondering if anyone in the area could post back when the nets are in and the fisheries folks are gathering eggs. My kids were quite young the last time we went up and took a look, and I think they would get a good kick out of seeing that operation, and possibly a hawg walleye or 2 (or 3, or 4, etc.) in the nets. Those of you that have been there at the right time as a youngster, and probably still, know what an experience that can be. Please post if you have any info/comments in the up-coming weeks. Thanks

Ditto, I was talking to the fishery guy at the Power Dam yesterday, and they just started stripping down by woman and bowsting, so he sid it should be any day now for Cut Foot!

Please let us know if anybody lives by there! grin.gif

The lights on the docks were on last night when we came by, so I'm assuming they still have fish in the nets. We thought about stopping, but drinks at the GDP sounded better! grin.gif

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I know back in the day, late 90's, people camped out along (approaches beside it)the forest road along Birch lake.  The road on the right, right before the dam on hwy 1 south of Ely.   I dont know all the legalities of thr forest there, they may or may not have been legal.

      The local state parks are also an option. Very modest yearly fee there also. Cliff

      Absolutely. I'd never get mad at a guy squirrel hunting while I'm deer hunting. Thats just public land hunting. Now if he shot at squirrels very close to me that's different. Maybe the guys I talked to had a bad experience but it isn't that frequent. That's what I hope anyway.

      Looks like the forest service campgrounds charge a modest fee.  But the are pretty nice.   Fall lake, fenske lake are a couple to consider
