Walleye action near Fergus Falls

Recommended Posts

markinthemslabs

Hey everyone! Just wondering where some of the walleyes might be at. Near to Fergus falls. Went out on Wall last night, no luck though. Marking them in about 18-20. I also went out to Orwell lake, but just small perch about 4-6 in. If you could send me some info, that would be great. Thanks! my e-mail; frenchchris_fatherfrench@yahoo.com

First off, welcome to FM. I'm betting you will not find a specific answer to your question. this site is great for what's working references, but location posts will put a hundred fishermen on the spot before you get there!! I would keep trying new spots, the walleyes will pick up as the month progresses. Good luck, Brent

Get your gps. Enter Lat: 46 degrees 16' 59" N and Long: 96 degrees 04' 42" W

Look for a guy named Adrian, real friendly fellow, there almost every day. Guarenteed, he can point you to the walleyes and northerns. He has no problem showing you the exact spot to get as many as you want. He acts like it's his job to help you.

Well that will have to wait untill next week. Thats when I'm buying a GPS. So thanks for the info. I'll have to go try it out, but if I get nothing I'll be looking for you. haha No j/k.

As of right now we're walking around blind folded. Don't have a clue where to fish. Thanks anyways.

It'll be three weekends now since I was up there so they may not be on those exact spots, but if you check different depths around those areas I would surely think you could find something to bring home.

GRAND DAD:

Well Then I might come out there. Where you gonna be at? I will be out there in a blue 96 Chevy. What will you be driving? Portable? or not? Well I gotta go. Thanks

Went out to this little pond and we were fishing for gills and crappies and one of my friends pulls up a 23in. walter. We had on wax worms and tiny hooks. Has that ever happened to you? I have never seen that before.

Sorry about that markthemslabs I had already left for up north by the time you replied I only am on here when am at wook,I had a fish house out there I took it off this weekend, and the fishing sucked for me this weekend granted I didn't get up there until Sat but I only managed 1 keeper crappie and that was it so I pulled off I figure we are one snow storm away from making it a lot of work to get a house off and it was nice out so might as well do it while the weather is good seasone for fishhouse's is coming to an end quick

Thats alright GRAND DAD. I just got my new GPS and I have no idea on how to use it. Anyone know how to use the H2Oc series. I got the Navtronics Hot Lakes and I still don't know how to use it. I thought that chip was supposed to show you the lake contures. I might have to return it. Anyone have any clues for me. Thanks.

I don't think I have ever seen a lake worse for drifting snow then Star, Battle was alright on my side but there was a guy that was plowing roads out there but I saw him take his fish house off the same time I did so it could get bad now that I would asume hes not going to be plowing any more?

Marekthemslabs, good luck with the GPS I have had mine at least a year know and I barly know how to use it, I think you need some kind of degree to use it some people swear its easy I just guess them people are a lot smarter then me, every once in a while I here Gander Mountin has classes on how to use them one of these days I have to make it to one.

Markinthemslabs, if you go into the menu and then I think you select Map Data and in the screen you need to switch the map to the chip that you bought for it.

You will need to load the contour maps from the MMC card for the particular area you are fishing. I think this is done under the browse MMC card feature on the menu. I would recommend spending some good quality time with the operators manual though. I know that you can get that at lowrance.com. There also might be a tutorial for how to operate features on the GPS also.

good luck

Dan

Thanks! Any bait shops around Fergus Falls? They might be able to help me. Or maybe West Battle? There are not too many bait shops around here.

Any luck out on West Battle? I'm thinking about going out there tomorrow night. Trying for some pans or eyes. So any info would be awsome.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.
    • BRULEDRIFTER
      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.     
    • Surface Tension
      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine. 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.
    • Surface Tension
      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.
