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.

      Was up on Big Bow last week. Pulled three trucks out that were stuck. Not easy getting around off the roads. We went out of Geigers and he has a nice road where you can get off and fish. Fishing was not good though we didn't try going cross country to our normal spots. Good luck!!

      nills 8 inch is 8 I think.  would be great for pike. less torque required. 
    • eyeguy 54
      wow! talk about service. called marine general in duluth yesterday and its on my step this morning!  drill trigger is at chest level so should be dandy.

      OK, I may not be the most nimble guy in the outdoor world but for the life of me i can't apply those little yellow plastic bobber stops I bought at the Sports Show this past weekend. I ruined a dozen of them just practicing. Anybody else have the same problem? I know you have to be gently and not crush the little buggers. What am I doing wrong?
    • mrpike1973
      As you know I have the 6 inch K Drill after loosing 3 of the biggest pike iv'e seen this weekend not being able to get them up the hole. I need a bigger auger for pike. I have a 7 inch mora hand auger and ordered a plate. Will this work OK or should I get the 8 inch K-drill the width is 7 1/2 inches. I'm willing to spend the $230 for the 8 inch if recommended. My wrists just can't take the 8 inch K drill or Mora drill only was able to use someone else's for a short bit. Worried the Mora will ruin the drill long term. Thanks

      I've always just used electrical tape.  It stretches and forms to the reel foot and rod handle.  Usually stays secure and sheds water.  I don't switch reels often so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Agreed a buddy of mine uses the little green bands from bait shops for minnow bags very stiff but hold reels on very secure. Personally I don’t like rods that have to have reels taped on just because I like trying new reels with rods and I’m always switching things around.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake. 
    • Wanderer
      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps
