Two Inlets - Walleye Jigging

3 posts in this topic

This is a question for the experts. We have fished Two Inlets many times, but it seems like we aren't catching as many walleyes now as we were 10 years ago. We mostly troll ing 8-15' with spinners and leaches or 3" plastic grubs. We don't use jigs very often and am wondering if we are missing out because I see a lot of good walleyes being caught with jigs and leaches. Are you guys swimming the jigs or just using them vertical? Do you ever troll with a jig? What depths do you typically fish this time of year? I know, too many questions.

Hey Husker,

In my short time fishing the lake here, I have found that you really have to know the lake well and know what you are doing when you do find the spots. If it makes you feel any better, I have only caught two walleyes myself so far. But I also don't fish them that much. When you get here next week, Bob and I will try point out some spots for you. My best luck has been rigging with leeches. I look forward to seeing you at the resort soon Husker. Take care.

This is an easy one husker, people can't keep their mouths

shut! Lakes that small can't handle that much

pressure. Plus the lake has very little stocking.

The internet is a great place to "chat" but it is not

helping the area lakes bragging about your fishing success.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.
