Lake Superior grin.gif Maybe try forming a differnt question......what structure do you look for? what time of day? what depth? Those sort of things will probably get you a little further.

mstark, shiner's given you good advice. It's not so much about which is the "best" winter walleye lake as which is the easiest winter walleye lake to learn for someone new to the area.

There are a lot of good winter walleye lakes within a half hour of Ely, including Vermilion, which, while huge, is one of the best walleye lakes of all. Shag, right here in Ely, is a consistent producer through early January. After that it begins to fall off. If you go into Babe's or Great Outdoors and buy your bait and tell them you are new to town and are looking for a couple decent walleye spots on Shag in winter, any bait dealer with half a brain will give you a couple good spots. Not the prime spots they've spent decades learning, but some OK spots that will put you on fish. A bait dealer who won't share info won't be in the bait business for long.

Its definitely that small private lake hidden off the Martin road. shocked.gifgrin.gif

You don't have to be on the best lake to get into eyes, you just got to be doing the right thing at the right time.

There isnt just one "Best" walleye lake.

These would be my top 5 in no order.

LOW

Rainy

Red

Mil Lacs

Vermilion

There are many other good walleye lakes. Some easier to fish and find fish and some are good certain times of the winter.

With the lakes I have fished in the past, Mille Lacs is my winner. Good luck to you.
