Thanks for all the nice words guy's. I have already spoken to Dan. The question was not about getting a guide in this area but rather about a possibility to expand both of our quide services.

Thanks again.

Wayne, any tips on what the walleyes are biting on up in the Alex area this time of the year? I'm from the Osakis area, but would like to try the chain. Fat heads work on Osakis, but I'm wondering what works best on other lakes.

Also colors of bait, dark or color. How is the water clarity compared to Osakis?

Thanks for your advise!

I can tell you from personal experience that the walleyes were biting on leeches. I did get some on crawlers as well. Had shiners but didn't even go to them as there was no need to.

Past two trips leeches and gulp 4" minnow (smelt color) did the best. Chain is clear compared to Osakis.

Thanks everyone.

I have gulp in my tackle box, but unsure the best technic in fishing the 4" minnow style. Do you use with plain hook jig, lindy rig or spinners? I have not had much luck with fake bait although some swear by it. I would like to learn how to effectively use it. Tips would be appreciated.

I effectively have used the Gulp minnows in the past. Typicallty I've used them with a jig to put the life into them. I've favored the real deal with a lindy or live bait rig. Have used the Gulp Crawlers on a live bait rig however. I would have to say that I have had better luck running a small float in front of this set up to get the crawler up some. Real nice when you get sick of perch/sunnies tearing your real crawlers in half every 2 seconds. Can be extremely effective ran behind a spinner rig as well.

For now, I'd start with leeches!

Thanks for the insight.

Have you used the Gulp Leeches?

Are they only effective on spinners, because of the speed?

Thanks for your thoughts

hey wayne i hate to ask , but I been wanting to get up there all spring, i usually fish darling in the spring for da crappies, but they made the spawning area (protected area bigger now) is it still any good cuz we used to have to go up into that little crick or at least close to the crick to catch them and last time we went all the signs were moved to protect like the whole bay, we got mad and left and havent been back since, I've never walleye fished the chain, so I figured you'd know best, Is there 1 lake better than the rest on the chain for walleye, or 1 that is more condusive to night missions on full moons?

I was on Geneva today. The crappies are on the east shore starting to spawn. I noticed some in the pencil reeds on Darling earlier this week, so I would guess all the lakes with the exception of Carlos will see the crappies in full spawn mode for the next couple of days. I like Darling for walleyes if I have to fish the chain for walleyes this time of year. There are better lakes for walleyes in the area than the chain.

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
