Looking for Walleyes

6 posts in this topic

I have been out fishing a good amount this spring and have had good luck at finding plenty of panfish, and even some bass! The only problem is I haven't had one Walleye.

The girlfriend is down this weekend and we're going out in my boat for the first time tomorrow. Any suggestions for finding Walleyes in the Mankato area? I've been in Madison and Washington so far this year. I was thinking either Emily or Eagle could be decent....HELP!

Thanks and have a great Memorial Day!!!

Pitch jigs and leeches or cranks to wind-blown weed lines on Tetonka or slowly drag shiners on Lindy Rigs in deep water on Madison.

If your bringing your girlfriend out, target panfish so she is catching something or she will get bored and there is the end of your fishing!

      I'd pull it off to error on the side of caution.  You can always put it back out there in the future.

      Just because an officer doesn't say have a nice day doesn't mean he's a dick.  Can you imagine all the idiots this guy has to deal with on a daily basis?  It's the same with police officers.  They also get a bad rap because they aren't super polite or "nice" to people.  They get disrespected and abused and lied to on 95% of their calls.  You probably wouldn't be the most cordial person either if you had to deal with the crap they have to.     Should they be cordial?  Yes.  Is that what they get paid to do?  No.  Don't let it bug you so much.

      What's the Ice thickness on Blue now?  I'm considering driving out tomorrow on Blue. Has anyone fished Crappies or Sunnies Mon, Tues or Weds this week?
