Good Area Crankbait Lakes

6 posts in this topic

Judging from another post, there are some guys that get into pulling cranks once things warm up and the fish get more scattered. I'm not looking for spots on lakes or even your small honey hole lakes, but I was wondering what some of the area lakes are that are good for pulling cranks. Also, just a general idea on depth on some of these lakes and maybe the time of day?

I want to spend alot more time learning trolling this year so just looking for a few ideas to get me rolling. I tried Big C late last summer and caught a couple right away but that was it. crazy.gif

Some good trolling lakes would be Ottertail, Big C, Big Mcdonald, Rose and Long (vergas). Other than OT and Big C these walleyes might be anywhere from surface to 35 ft down. Electronics pay a big key in discovering depth. They might be suspended in 40 ft, might be 90 ft. Most of the time i wait until closer to sun down before i start searching for they walleyes. It takes some time to get this down, and i dont have it down.

OT and Big C are two of the best that I know of.

OT might be the best of all.

So is anyone going to be crankin during the full moon this coming weekend? I am itching to get out and have a few lakes in mind--- Big C and possibly Rose?

If anyone is looking to get out Friday night I will have a spot in my boat. I wouldn't mind hooking up with someone who has a little knowledge on either of these lakes. Drop me a line if interested motorhead327@hotmail.com

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
