Minnesota Walleye Trail- Whitefish Chain

Recommended Posts


Welcome back to the Brainerd/Nisswa area MWT anglers. We are very excited to be working with Polebender and the Minnesota Walleye Trail. This tour is a class act. Really it is the finest run walleye circuit in the state. Every time the MWT comes to town they bring some of Minnesota's best walleye anglers. In the past they have fished Pelican and Gull, now they will try the skills on the Whitefish chain on July 8. The weigh in site is Driftwood resort on Upper Whitefish.

Whitefish should be an awesome event. The lake is loaded with walleye structure and fish can caught in a variety of presentations. The summer bite just started on the chain about two weeks ago. It should continue right on through the tourney weekend. Some top presentations are rigs, spinners, crankbaits, or slip floats. We'll see what the top tourney anglers put together. With all the nice fish in the system we should see some impressive baskets.

Good Luck to all the competitors and be sure to stop in and say hi. We'll have everything you'll need to conquer the chain. If you still want to get signed up there are still a couple of openings.

      Shorelines are starting to open, do you see the wood ducks?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
