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

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
