Where are the walleye.....

Recommended Posts

bak2MN

in the DL area? I am laid off all winter long and have nothing better to do than fish. I know walleye are not the only fish out there but I have fished numerous lakes without catching one walleye yet around the DL area. I do not know the lakes that well around here, but I do have the maps and I did get a new portable so I have been trying different ares. I have two young boys that are my fishing partners and occasionally my father inlaw as I dont know anyone else around the area and we have caught perch, gills now getting into some crappies. Im not looking for someones special spot just maybe one or two lakes with a general idea of where to try and what maybe to try. As I stated before I only keep about 5% of fish caught. Just looking for a walleye or two to say I caught one around here. I now have my 8x18 ice castle out on deadshot bay so if your around and you see me out there stop and say hi, im on the west end in the red house,cant miss it. If you have info that you dont want to share on here because of obvious reasons I understand. Good luck to all and be safe.

bak2MN, I just talked to a friend of mine on the phone and he said he and a friend hit Cormrant on Monday night and got into some good walleyes. Nothing great but I guess they did pretty well (14-19 inches). He said they went off the west access off of the road that goes south out of Lake park. I don't know the road number but the access is about 4-6 miles south of Lakepark. he said they were in about 19 fow if you wrap around the access to the right????I've never been out there so its just hear say.I asked if he minded if I shared his info and he said go head!! I think I might be giving it a try.

Guys that are using sleds and portables are zooming out into the middle of Sallie. Fishing south of the 50 foot hole in 18 feet. Doing pretty well on smallish walleye and perch.

Well the elusive walleye did not win tonight I finally caught my first two walleye in the DL area. Im not going to say where because it wasnt my spot I will let the person report on them if he wants to. Only thing I will sai it was glow hook 6:00 in 24-25 ft of water. One was 15 and the other was 16 1/2 inches. Nothing great but it sure felt great to me. Good luck and be safe.

      I’m really hoping to make it up there on Saturday. Might try a couple different spots, pending success rate.

      Also depends on if your married or not, or want to stay that way! 😄  At my buddies old place since he had an out house we would just bring water and start using it when we could get the heat up with a fire place and a few elc, heaters as to not die. Then we were good! 😉

      Hello everyone,    I know I'm new to this website, but I've been fishing for a while now. A few years ago I picked up a Black Betty 6061 for ice fishing and I bent the handle trying to put it into a Frabil hard case on an exceptionally cold day (dumb me). I wrote a few emails to 13 Fishing/called 5 times and explained the situation and they told me I would have to pay for my parts. I said that was fine because it was my fault (even though I thought the handle should be a little sturdier).   Flash forward a 2 weeks later and I have my new handle. I took the old handle off and put the new one on, but the retaining screw that holds the washer for the nut in place wouldn't fit. The new handle 13 Fishing sent to me has a screw hole tapped too small. I called 13 and they were not aware of a screw size change. I asked them to send me a screw that would fit the handle and they said okay. 2 Weeks later, no screw. I called them again and explained that I had been over a month without this reel operational and no one had sent anything. I told them that I had a fishing trip coming up in the next two days and they could either overnight the screw to me or send it to the location I was going to be fishing. They said they would send it and it didn't come before the trip, nor did it come after the trip I just came back from.    They either sent me the wrong handle that doesn't fit my old BB, or they changed the dimensions of their design. I'm just trying to get my reel operational and it seems like such an easy thing. I'm probably going to go down to the store and just grab a small screw that will fit, but it seemed too easy for 13 Fishing to send me the part. How should I deal with 13 Fishing now? Has anyone else dealt with this issue before? I really liked 13 Fishing's gear, but if this is what happens when something goes wrong, I may end up turning elsewhere for the $$.

      I always use a dead stick next to a jigging hole.  The water is clear so you can get pretty high off the bottom to bring them in and then lower it to them.  Red hook on the dead stick during the day and anything glow after dark if you want but I use pink.  I usually use fat heads or rainbow with good success.  My go to is a pink and blue rattle spoon or red.  Just off of structure during the day with a nice easy move of 15 feet or so to the top of the structure morning or night.

      Now it sounds like they’re shooting for October. Won’t be possible by fishing opener

      You have no idea how I suck at electronics!

      Depends on the year.  Typically early May.   Some years you can get away with earlier....

      You are welcome Icehawk. I want some great fishermen there to teach and pass on knowledge. I also want to showcase the friendships that can be made here.

      It would be great if he is right.   Now, if he is wrong......   Still need to stop deer farms from spreading this disease.

      GPS!  Helping my son move into a new house this Sat or that sounds like something to try. Didn't really want to spend my last weekend of Walleye season lifting craap up and down stairs! 😟  Good Luck.
