walleye report

Fished yesterday under some pretty challenging conditions. 20mph northwest wind. Big time cold front. Walleyes bit sporadically. We found them on the up-wind edge of several of the flats. 8 mile, 7 mile, shermans, and busters. We caught them with a variety of methods.... lindy rigs, short and long. Floating jig heads...chartreuse, white, and red. Plain kahle hooks too. Leeches worked the best for bait. We had 7 fish 24 to 28 inches. One "eater" at 15, which we also let go. Tried some trolling with tail dancers, but no luck with that. Did a little musky fishing last night as well. Got a 21 inch smallie on a pacemaker, and a nice pike too.

All I can say is, thank God for bilge pumps!

I was out on Wednesday--the fishing was brutal! Felt sea-sick after being out there. The Walleyes were not jumping in our boat--we used Lindys and Spinners on long snells. We had to work pretty hard for our fish.

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?

      tried this last year,   not worth it in my opinion.    But I always wondered if I could eat the rusty crayfish.  has anyone tried?
