Walleye Depth

11 posts in this topic

Was out on North Lida yesterday. I found the Walleye bite to be deeper that I expected - all the way from 17 to 21 feet.

What are you finding?

We have been finding them between 9 and 14 feet.

I wonder if the thunder boomers on Friday night sent them out a little deeper? That would be my guess.

I found a couple in 8-12 fow. I had thunder boomers to the north and to the south of where I was and I ended up pulling in a 27"er about 9:00 Friday night.

Oh sure it had to be bigger than mine wink.gif HA HA!!! I'm sure we have crossed paths. I fish out in that area quite a bit. Lots of lakes out there with great walleye numbers as well as some awesome panfishing.

16 foot green star craft with a 35 hp Evinrude on it. Pulled by a s&*t brown Jeep. I live on 113 about 3 miles West of Tulaby Lake.

      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 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.
