rigs for eyes on Carlos

3 posts in this topic

I will be up on Carlos mid July… Now I know some spots that folks recommend for walleyes but what I am wondering is what are some good setup’s to catch some of them boys… I did not have a whole lot of luck last year, but it sounds like the fishing was a bit slow when I was up there… I am not looking to fish too hard but I would like to let my daughter have a chance to catch some walleyes for a fish fry… We had a pretty good sunny and crappie fry last year… Thanks in advance…

One of the best ways for Carlos is to drag a leech with a lingy-rig. You can cover some water until you find some active fish. If you know some "spots" as you say, you can also vertical jig with a fat-head or shiner. Sometimes you may have to fish deep too. Carlos is the deepest of the area lakes, and some anglers have had success jigging in 40-50 feet. (I've never been one for deep jigging...).. The 'eyes will suspend sometimes as well. So trolling rapalas over deep water can be a useful pattern to try as well.

Keep checking the board here...as summer moves along you'll get some more ideas....we'll keep you posted.

Yep, Ghoiterman's got it. A Lindy Rig with a leech works on Carlos. Especially that time of year. You may need to slow your presentation down to a crawl and get out into the 20+ foot range, too.

Ghoiterman, I know someone who caught a wallhanger of a walleye on Carlos during mid-summer, where the fish was suspended 60 feet down in 120 feet of water. shocked.gif Sounds like lake trout, huh?

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff
