Lakes-Walleyes

3 posts in this topic

Ok, my son is looking to take his GF out on opener, but doesn't want a big crowd, on that lake, so probally one without walleyes in the area. He is using my mr.pike with 50hp on it smile.gif I get my musky edition with 115hp. It will also be his first time going on his own, when backing it up, so any lakes in the area that you know that have at least a half ways decent ramp and a god area to back into, it would be greatly appreciated. I already told him good luck trying to find a lake like that, but he still wants to go, so any ideas would be greatly appreciated, preferably, the lakes being within 40 minutes from Avon. If they have walleyes, please only post lakes that might not be as super busy as some of the others.

Thank You!

I wouldn't worry too much about him taking forever backing in the boat, etc...people who have no business landing a boat are out in full force every opener so I'm sure the line will be slow no matter what lake you send him to.

      Thanks. I was only able to give it a whirl once shortly after the post, tried swim baits and tails with no luck. Yep, hear ya about the tackle sacrifice so the generic heads and rubber are the ticket. Depth, current speed, and the angle of the line are considerations when choosing jig weight but I'll use the lightest head possible. Various styles of swim baits and cranks have done well for me on the Sippi & MN in the past but haven't been smacked on the Red yet. Scheels in Moorhead is dumping the fishing stuff and had a little clearance bin where I scored a few cranks for cheap. Only lost one crank to the Red, but had a few close calls & the Rap was like $3. One thing I've learned about casting cranks in rivers is that I loose less if they're floaters and the front treble hook is customized or removed. It helps to use a braid also, when the vibration changes I stop reeling so the lure can back or float up out of the snag. Usually river fish crush a crank bait and I know it's a fish, they ain't got the luxury of suckin & spittin.
