  1. The DNR announced today that it has begun implementing several concrete steps aimed at improving the Mille Lacs Lake walleye population, while building a closer working relationship with the Mille Lacs community. “Mille Lacs is an incredibly important fishery for … Full Story Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

    Basin tactics 2, leadcore

    One tactic this time of year that tends to excel in larger rivers and lakes is trolling leadcore line for walleyes. Basic tackle is a large capacity level wind reel and a 7-9' medium action trolling rod. I recommend a trolling rod as the taper is made to troll nonstretch lines like leadcore or superbraids. A line counter reel can be very helpful to replicate your presentation when targeting suspended fish but leadcore line is colored every 30' and you can get by with letting out line by how many colors you have out as well. Leadcore line is a dacron sheath around a fine lead filament and t
  3. Just got back from a week of camping and fishing on Rainy Lake. While the bite was not fast and furious it was consistant and good. We seemed to find fish scattered from 6 FOW all the way to 35 FOW with the reefs holding most of the fish. Locating and staying on a school and waiting them out seemed to work best rather that chase after the hot bite. We mainly fished jigs with crawlers, shiners and leeches but did do some live bait rigging. Neither tactic seemed to out produce the other. They seemed to show preference to one of the baits for a while and then would shut off. Changing up bait
  4. Fishing in the Bemidji area has taken a bit of a hit, and anglers have to work a little harder for their walleyes than they did a week or two ago. The jig bite is a thing of the past, and people rigging crawlers or leeches on the breaklines are starting to out-produce the guys fishing with jigs in shallow. Bottom bouncers and spinners with a crawler is also working very well on outside weed edges and off the breaks. The crankbait bite remains good over the sand and cabbage, as well as around mid-lake rocks and rubble. Salmo Hornets in 6-11' of water going 2.4 mph has been working well for us.
  5. This week we have had reports of fishing being good all over the lake. On the north side near Crowduck and Little Oak Island they are pulling spinners. The walleye are responding to a hammered gold and leech presentation. Drift or troll if needed from 25-30 feet of water. Towards the west near Zipple Bay there has been a large school of keeper sized fish in shallow. Ranging from 5 to 15 feet of water. Pull blades with a crawler harness to try and entice the walleye bite. Graceton area has had success in the 30 foot depth. Downrigging or trolling for the fish should have results. Pulling p
  6. Has anyone gone out just to do a catch and release of some of the bigger eyes? Maybe trying for the 28" or larger?

    Weedline walleyes part 2

    Last week I spoke briefly about some things to look for when targeting weed walleyes and getting to know the types of weeds to better understand the clues and tips they can give you as to what the bottom substrate would be like. This week I will talk about specific tactics to use to pull fish out of the weeds. First of all live bait rigs like lindy rigs and spinners can be fished along the edges of prominent weedlines that have distinct and defined edges. Trolling is an option with longer weedlines as is casting and slowly moving these baits to the boat from a fixed position. The main prob
  8. Fished out of the NW Angle the past five days. Great bite on both the MN and Ontario sides of the lake. Walleye are from 4-40' off points and structure. The drive might be a little longer to the Angle, but the catching is well worth it...pick a resort and they will help you find the fish...they even stock MN-legal eggs for your breakfast so you don't have to try to cross the border with them :-). After you boated 100 fish, check out the $1 happy-hour taps at Sunset Resort on Oak Island or try Jerry's Bar and Grill's great menu at Young's Bay...always friendly service and great food. The chick
  9. Numbers of walleyes caught this week have been very good. Using a spinner with either a crawler or leech has definitely been the best way to catch fish. Spinners in hammered gold, pink and white were out producing other colors. Fish are schooling in the rocks off Crowduck, Little Oak and outside Zipple area. Drifting from 15' in towards 7' of water. Best reported bite time is around 2pm - 5pm. Another area with good action has been over by Archie's Reef. Again the spinner has been the best, but some are picking fish up with jig and a minnow.
  10. I don't know about you but I can not believe it is the middle of June! The bite this month has been great! The biggest surprise is how shallow the walleye have been. Water from 4-18 feet of water has produced good bites. Drift with a spinner and crawler moving from deep to shallow if possible. Hammered gold and white would be a good starting color. Work the area in front of Pine Island from the pine to Lighthouse Gap. Some people are getting fish downrigging in the 30 foot depth. Try the water in front of The Fields or over towards Zipple Bay area. Heading across Big Traverse to Knight or G
  11. Had some luck with the bluegills on Lower Prior Lake yesterday afternoon. Seems they were in pre-spawn mode possibly. A few squirted when I was trying to unhook them. Fished near weeds in about 10 ft of water and landed a couple of larger ones and a few mid-sized ones to fill out the pan. Was using a panfish rod and slip bobber with a 1/2 night crawler on a bare hook. Tried a few leeches also and caught a couple of small LMB. Hooked int one large one that snapped my line on my panfish rod. Might have been a little excited on that one. Toward the end of my trip I pulled a bottom bou
  12. Fishing over the last couple days has been decent and outlook for the weekend is even better. Boats are reporting the best bite to be in the evening hours. Jig with pink, hammered gold or white.
  13. The 2015 walleye fishing opener is in the books. Warm weather would have been nice, but I will take good fishing over nice weather any day! Good fishing was reported in all our boats. The charters set up in the 18-24 foot range. Chartreuse or gold jigs in a 3/8 oz size had the best action. The fishing wasn’t fast and furious but overall very steady. Many slot fish, some of the smaller than keeper sizes and a few in the 28″ range were all netted and released. When the day was done most people had enough fish for a limit and some great stories to tell. We also had a boat fish for northern, and
  14. Current Lake Pokegama Fishing Reports, Grand Rapids - Click Here. I have been fishing walleyes on Pokegama for the past few summers with very little luck. Admittedly, I have not put much time in, but I plan to this summer. Can anyone provide any insights as to how to fish them, as well as where to fish them, both day and night? I notice that most posts highlight Winnie, Sugar, Split Hand etc., with little mention of Pokegama. Is it simply because it is very difficult to fish?
