Willmer-Spicer Area Fishing Reports

Recommended Posts

I worked a lot of spots and had little luck. Managed 2 'eyes

Friday evening and a couple of nice crappies. Marked a lot of

fish and bait fish, but even the sheepies were slow. And the

sunfish have been none existant. I can't figure it out. It also seems, like last year, that a lot of sunnies and crappies

didn't even spawn. Anyone else notice this the past 2 years?

This was on Norway.

Yeah JJ, the old man pulled plugs on Thursday night and Friday morning early but caught only a couple sheephead. That tactic was working for us thru most of June but that bite seems to have died off as well. The hunt for panfish was on over the 4th.

I have found fish hanging out in deeper water. Sometimes they hit quick, other times you can hang the bait on their lip and they won't eat it. The weather patterns have not helped any.

not saying to follow my lead, but was fishing green in 7 ft for panfish and noticed whitetips swimming down below. switched set up and literally nailed 3 nice eyes in about 15minutes. went out to the same spot later that evening with fall and spring piggie tackle and boated what was close to 7 lber. no alcohol involved in participating or telling of this story.

going to be heading up and staying on green this weekend. have been up there already this summer and have just caught small bluegills. Looking to get into something other than small bluegills. I.E. walleyes smallmouth largemouth and possibly some crappies. not looking for exact locations of where to fish just the general area and what type of technique you would recommend.

ill be visiting my dad in willmar this weekend and last time we tryed alot of lakes around there with very little success. we tryed games for pike with no results also hit calhoun, on just someones word that there were pike, that lake is way to shallow and weedy for me but we caught lots of bass on both lakes but that was it. then went to Nest lake and i boated a 37inch pike, i love catching big pike but we are looking for numbers plus i would like to get my dad on some fish. or any lakes that have a decent walleye bit going on or crappies for my little cousin that we taking out on saturday. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

husker, your best plan would be to pay 50 bucks, enter the tourney, and follow leech around the lake. more seriously though, go out to one of the hundred or so mid lake humps or bars, start on the top and work your way off the sides and even into the adjacent flats if needed. similarly there are miles of deep weedlines(12 to 15 ft) to work. i would approach both the same...just start throwing plastics, varying size, depth, type of retrieve, ect.. during the summer i usually switch to live bait after i find active fish.

Right now northern fishing has been slow. I'm pretty sure why not much feedback. Water temps are in the mid 60's on Green and the northerns aren't active yet on plugs. You can catch some on cranks in 15-22' but the real slam has yet to start(at least for me). I heard about a decent big sunfish bite on Diamond but dont have any more info than that. Walleyes are starting to show up on Green in 30' or so but lots of bait, reports are hit & miss

You have to realize that a lot of people aren't doing a lot of fishing right now. It's kind of the mid summer slack. You can't expect too much for responses in just 24 hours. You just have to have a little patience. grin

It took me a day and a half just for someone to cue me into where there was a baitshop near Big Cormorant lake, north of Pelican Rapids.

Haha! I was out twice this week trying to pre-fish for the tourney and the only thing I can say is that I eliminated a lot of water!

Fishing been slow for us. Right now my goal is not to get last place on Saturday!

Fished Green last 2 evenings pulling cranks 1-18" & 1-13" eye a couple of small norts & a couple of bass on Wed. 1-25" eye on Thur about same as Wed with norts & bass. The 3 eyes were caught on different pcs of structure in 24-27'. Thats the depths I've seen the most bait/activity. I think the lake must of froze out as I'm not seeing very many game fish smile

Was out on Green last night and this morning. Pulling cranks in 15' to 20'on breaks.

Alot of northerns and bass. No eyes for me. The fish seem to want a fast presentation. When you think your going fast enough kick it up a notch.

walleye are always biting on green.Just gotta be out there where they are when they are biting.When I am catchin em I see maybe 1 or 2 boats out(one boat I see stops to dip a few times and he is gone)You folks are pullin the plug too early.And most are fishin too deep.I see people pullin plugs but 2 mph aint fast enough.For me I like to fish at dark for 1 hour and catch a few rather than all day for one and all the pike and bass one wants.very soon it will pick up.In the morning if you see the sun you missed em,in the eve if you see the sun you are too early.Ya got two hours of prime time a day.I am having ok luck in the 8.5-11.5 depth on long gradual breaks on the wind blown shore lines pullin # 5 shads.11-15ft I use # 7.I have had the best luck on crawfish.If you want to catch walleye in the day light I would find the broadleaf weeds,kelp,and slip bobber or jig a leach in 14-17ft or drop a big minnow into 35-42,but at 20 bass and northerns to one walleye bait is too spendy.

      Might be heading up to Borden Lake this weekend. That is, if the ice and travel conditions are good. Is atv travel possible or hasn't there been much traffic on the lake?

      We are new to Minnesota fishing, I've read you can have 3 hooks within 9" on a tip up.  Can you have a minnow on each hook?  Or only allowed one bait, for example, a 9" smelt with all the hooks attached?  Kind of a man made lure.

      This will be my second year going.  All fish need to be released alive.  Its pretty deep water.  Has barotrauma popped up at all with fish being released at the contest?

      Variable conditions seems to be the trend this season. This past weekend we had yet another snow storm which dumped approximately 10-12 inches in the Remer, Longville, Outing, and Walker area. Travel has been best still with sleds or track machines. Colder temps the past few weeks have firmed things up on some bodies of water which were once heavy laden with slush, however there are still several lakes that unfortunately we would not advise to travel on until things improve, and with the "January thaw" approaching that might be a while. If you are planning on traveling to the area, call the area resorts or bait shops to get current conditions prior.
      This past weekend was the Winter Inland Trout Opener. Stories of success were across the board. As some people had great success, others struggled. We ourselves definitely had noticed more lookers than takers on the Vexilar, but managed to get a few topside. Fighting the cold front that hit mid Saturday morning, being on the right body of water, and having the right presentation all factored in.
      Lake Trout: Lakers are hitting tipped tubes and spoons in 35'-70' of water. Look to the inside turns, points, and shelves. And the best advice I can give any fisherman targeting trout is STAY MOBILE. Keep moving until you get one on the graph, never spending more than 5-10 minutes in an inactive hole. And not only should you stay on the move, but keep that lure moving consistently, working the entire water column.

      Stream Trout: Try searching around 4'-9' of water on the stocked trout lakes. Small spoons like the Clam Speed Spoon tipped with a Maki Plastic or waxie have produced the best.

      Panfish: Hit the shallow weedlines for those big Gills, and drill out over the deep basins in 22'-35' feet of water to catch the Crappies. Tungsten jigs tipped with waxies have worked well. Again, the key to success is staying mobile.

      Walleye: Still can be found on the shoreline points anywhere from 11'-26' feet of water and on the sunken humps. Jigging using spoons tipped with a minnow head have been best when they have been aggressive. If your noticing them coming in yet seemingly shy of the jig, slow down your movement, and try a simpler presentation. Toss down a set-line with a plain hook tipped with a medium Shiner or small Sucker Minnow.

      Anyone brave the snow and get out for the trout opener? Based on reports and pictures I seen, if you didn’t have a snowmobile, you weren’t getting anywhere away from the gunflint trail. 
       
      Every time I see it snow in Grand Marais, I cringe. I’m planning on going up there in late March. It’s shaping up to be nothing but slush, slush, and more slush! 😖

      Has anyone been out to big swan recently? Curious how the ice is and if there are spots to avoid as I’ve not fished this lake before. Looking to target cats as my other lakes have been lacking this year. Don’t need other people’s spots just ice conditions. Would like to bring out my 3/4 ton and 17’ IC if possible.

      On Sunday I was able to enjoy some of the hot summer bite on Gull Lake. Just so happens that I has sharing my enjoyment with a local guide and his three customers. Me and my son in a three hour time period were able to catch and release about 35-40 walleyes. Of these 35-40 we caught 3 that were longer than 13". I was a little dissapointed to watch the boat next to me keep limits of these 10 and 11 inch walleyes. I understand the need to make clients happy but I sure hope that this is not the norm.
