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.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
