Ladies first walleye! 5-25

9 posts in this topic

I took a Lady Friend fishing on Mille Lacs for her first attempt at walleye fishing, she was very inexperienced at fishing to say the least. It was a nice sunny day with no wind to speak of and I figured that we would at least spend a pleasant afternoon on the water. About twenty minutes after we started trolling some three ways with leeches I hear her meakly say "I think I have a fish", that was an understatement of large proportion! When we finaly landed her catch it turned out to be a 29 1/2 inch walleye, her first ever! She was still smiling and calling all her friends today when I dropped her off at home!

Nice fish! Who cares if she kept it or released it. It always comes down to that for some people.

Senior that's a great story. Congratulations to your Lady friend. Funny how that happens. We were on Mille yesterday and we drifted by a Guy and his 6 year old so and watched his son catch his first Walleye ever. A 25" beauty. The son was holding up the Polaroid pictures and showing them to us and saying" Look I caught a 25 POUND Walleye" and grinning from ear to ear. We all laughed and said, yep, he's definatley a fisherman now.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
