Walleye Opener

3 posts in this topic

Many a thread has been posted in years past regarding the St. Louis & camping etc...

THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM!

I personally LOVE the Reservoir lakes near Duluth & fish them throughout the summer. Usually I would fish in the Ely Area on opener, however not this year...

What tactics are invaluable for the Reservoir lakes as the post spawn walleye fishing begins.

i.e.. How would you go after them in the Cloquet Chain??

Happy Walleye Opener where ever you are! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif & MAny Good Returns! grin.gif

Jig n minnow and troling crawler rigs. Once you find a fishy spot its a lot of fun to slip bobber a hook n minnow or leech if waters warm enough.

If you try trolling cranks/sticks make sure you stick to something with a tight wobble like a floating rap or bomber. Once the waters warm then you can get to a more "agressive" crank that has a bigger wobble like a jointed shad rap.

Oh and theres always the lindy rig.

I totally agree. early spring - jig n' minnow. mid summer -slip bobber and leech. Late summer troll crawler harness. It's what i do year after year!

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
