West End Help for Sat May 19th

8 posts in this topic

This will be mt 3rd year fishing out of Riches Bay. In the

past I could not find the walleyes. What depths have you

found the walleyes at? I will be using jig n minnow, lindy

rigs. Any starting points on the West End would be greatly

appreciated by this rookie, Thanks.

Go deep young man, go deep.

All my fish are coming in 34 ft or greater. Jig bite is good. Bobbers in the evening ---- shallow---- we are getting them off the end of the dock.

From Ritchies bay, you are not far from good fishing.

I will be on the "west" side this weekend. Maybe we'll see you out there. We will have two crestliners one blue and one green fishing together most of the weekend.

Hey Ron,

You know I will put you on them. Same spot last night had guests fill their three man limit there. Another cabin did real well on another spot getting a 26"er as well. The spot by the "dead tree" is starting to go also. Had guys get a few there this morning. Looks to be a good week. See you on Saturday. Be careful driving.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
