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.

      so i booked my first trip to mille lacs for a week on the southern portion in september for my pike fishing trip with my wife and dog. we agreed that we would try smaller lakes in the future and we actually went bigger!! 😀🙄 man that's a big (almost) round lake. i'm not asking for secret spots, but a push in the right direction please. i will look at my navionics this week and see how it looks but do i just go out and find some points or maybe work the backs of the bays? shallow or deep in mid september? i would think that first i would need to find some weeds. i always think weeds and pike. from looking at satellite pics it's hard for me to tell weeds or any other type of structure. any of your suggestions would really be helpful.  i know it's not rocket science to catch pike but any time that I could save looking would be a great help. you have all been really kind. thank you all! chris

      Tale of two days this last weekend. On Saturday, couldn't pull a fish out of the lake. On Sunday, had a four fish walleye limit by 11am, with a bonus perch as well.   Graphed fish on Saturday, just couldn't get 'em to move. On Sunday, went back and no fish to be found. Decided to get out of my comfort zone, so i started working spots that i hadn't been to in two years or more. 2nd spot i tried had 'em stacked. Not huge, but consistent 12-15". Good size to keep.   My take-away was get out and try some spots you haven't been to in a while.

      The sweltering heat, high humidity values, and intermittent thunderstorms have certainly provided some challenges for anglers but even as we enter the dogdays of summer the fish are still on the chow! As we all know there is never any shortage of action when one sets out to target Bass. Smallmouth Bass can be found along the deep weed lines, rocks, and sunken humps. Try using a Drop-Shot Rig tipped with a Leech. Largemouth on the other hand can be found working the weeds inside and outside the lines using Tubes, Spinner Baits, and Carolina Rigs. In the early morning, try working docks, shoreline structure and swimming platforms next to sharp drop-offs. Of course, usually by this time of year we have shifted our focus to chasing Large Slab Crappies. The weed beds are holding large numbers of both Crappies and Sunfish. Pay especially close attention to the cabbage along deeper drop-offs. Slip-Bobbers using live bait or plastics, Small Swim Baits, Spinners, Beetle Spins are all working well, these buggers have been hungry!! The Walleye bite is also one that has yet to relinquish to the torrid, humid conditions. A lot of techniques have still been producing good numbers of fish. Anything from pulling Spinners in the weeds, Lindy Rigs, Slip-Bobbers, jigs tipped with Leeches, Crawlers or Chubs… Cranks, Shiver Minnows and the list goes on!! It really is Dealer’s Choice it seems, trolling Cranks on the mid-lake flats has been best toward the evening hours until after dark, Spinners have been enticing them during the mid-day, as well as jigging raps for the walleye found out over the deep structure. -Cheers!

      I live just off the Rum near walbo. Water high deer flies horrible. Yes good smallie and walleye when water down to normal. To high right now in my opinion.

      I wonder if there is any connection to the fact that when the dnr guys pull their seine on my beach they get 150 or so nice perch? Run up to 4 or 5 inches.   They seine at a number of places around the lake 4 times every July and have been for many years.   This is way above what I can remember as typical.  And that is without the young of the year which are still too little to show up much.

      I fished last Tuesday and Wednesday. Caught 5 walleyes in Lower WF on lindy and leach. 4 of the fish were caught within an hour on Tuesday early evening. Mornings were slow both days. Heading up again on Monday for a few days. Hopefully weather will stay stable.
