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.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
