13 posts in this topic

NOT LOOKING FOR ANY SPECIFIC LAKE INFORMATION, BUT WAS WONDERING WHAT DEPTH GUYS WERE FINDING WALLEYES ON THE NORTHERN INLAND LAKES. I.E. 12 FEET, 4 FEET, ON ROCKS, WEED EDGES, ETC. THANKS FOR THE HELP.

10' on reefs or close to breaks. Weed edges are good as long as the pike aren't there. I noticed areas that should hold eyes were left on account of pike in the area.

We found em on the edge of rocks in 8-12 feet on Shag in Ely. No slaughter going on but we were happy. 18 walleye from 14-24 inches in 2 days.

Yeah, 10-4!

Nice minnow mix you so carefully calculated putting together! How'd you come up with that again?!

Maybe Justin should try some!

We stopped back in later that day but your relief guy was in. We needed more minnows and 1/8 ounce jigs.

Thanks, we'll see ya again.

We caught them in 15' to 17' on Island, mostly with jigs & leeches.

hey Ted! Rumor has it you couldn't catch a walleye if it was in your bath tub.

My advice would be to use a King Kat with a gob of worms and fish off the dock!

been doing very well every day on island except for tuesday when the storms came through. every walleye caught was in 6 fow no structure. just flat sandy bottom with minimal weeds on bottom. tried every lure i have to throw at them and the only and i mean only way i can catch them is with a smaller size pink or orange floating jig 4 inches from 2 split shots. and the minnow hooked through the lips. hook them through the back and only thing i could catch is a buzz. hook them through the lips and i might waith 10 minutes before a walleye. and no other colors worked except for pink or orange. really weird but that is the only thing that has been working all week. averageing about 4 eyes per night from 8pm till 9:30. going back out there in 30 minutes to get some more. have to take advantage of this while it lasts. from this spot here is the keeper eye count.. sat night.. 9 people.22 keepers.. sunday night, 2 people 10 keepers. monday night. 2 people, 5 keepers. tue night= SKUNKED. wed night, just me, 3 keepers. tonight will be 2 of us and i am guessing we will get 7 keepers...

Good fishing all see ya out there some time.

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
