WALLEYE LOCATION

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.

As Upnorth's post indicates, its going to make a huge difference as to what body of water your on.

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.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
