Boy Lake Fishing Reports


Recommended Posts

It's almost here. Our rather large group 8 adults & 9 kids are heading to Boy. Was curious as to the current fishing reports. We have done well in the past, any general info would be appreciated and I will give report on my return. What is the water temp? Seems like it's been chilly in the area. Thanks.

Just got back from Boy on 7-17. Last Sat thru Mon. we were able to fish and did fairly well. Caught some 15"- 17" eyes and some 22"-24". Lots of small northern also some very nice sunnies. Starting Tues. the weather changed to cold rain and 25mph winds and the fishing died. Thur. and Fri. weather man used the words wind chill. Got so bad came home day early. If you can get some stable weather you should do well. I'd go back today if I could. Good Luck!!!

I'm sorry to hear you had bad/terrible weather. If you don't mind me asking, where did you catch your walleyes (location/depth/presentation etc)?

Also, has anyone ever fished Boy for Muskies? Largest fish I've caught on Boy was a 34" Northern a couple years back. I've heard there's musky in the lake, I just haven't seen one yet.

We fished the north (main) part of boy. Best fishing was using shallow running minnow baits over the tops of the weeds, we just kept moving around until we picked some up then worked that area. Also used lindy rig with leech again over the tops of the weeds. Best sunnie action was around the island, crawlers or small leech was best. Picked up couple smallie's to. Purple and blue were good colors. Hope this helps good luck.

I am planning a trip to Big Boy in September. Any reports or advise will be greatly appreciated. Did hear that the late day bite was the best for walleye.

Thanks

Spotty,

Some are doing really good. others not so well. It may take you a while to find the fish. If you do stick to that spot

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"

      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.

      Let’s start this by congratulating Brianf and son for winning their second City Autoglass Walleye Classic last weekend. These guys know how to fish.  We just got to the lake for the season. Chores are almost done and I’m ready to fish.  red(new dog is more yellow)labguy

      I tried starting a 2024 Lake Vermilion Fishing Report topic but it doesn't show up on this board.   Maybe somebody else knows how to do it?
    • Mike89
