Nisswa Guide Service- Whitefish Report!

Recommended Posts

Sportland_Bait

With the best walleye reports coming from the Whitefish Chain recently I figured that would be the best bet for this morning. I was right. Although the fish were a little tight lipped, I was still able to coax quite a few into biting. It took some hovering to get the job done. Windblown points held all the fish. Some spots held walleyes while many were just full of rockies. Most groups of fish were stacked up in 16-19 feet. Leeches seemed to outproduce redtails by a slim margin, but they did bite on both. I think with the slight coldfront the walleyes wanted an easy meal like a lively leech. Nightcawlers could have been a good choice today too. Also hooked up with a dandy smallmouth bass and a couple of clams. Overall a great morning on the water.

Jason,

I am kind of a newbie at this fishing stuff. What is a windblown point? Do you mean a point where the water is rough with a good walleye chop? Are these land points or points that are structure in the water (underwater points)? I am just trying to get the information so I can continue to learn how to catch these elusive walleyes?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

A windblown point refers to the wind pushing the waves into an under water point coming off the shore, rock pile, under water hump (any underwater structure). The side of the structure that the waves are crashing into will hold bait fish. If you have bait fish you have predators like walleyes. Example below.

Wind -> going this way

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
