Anyone got any place that they would like to share with me to catch walleyes from shore. That is good anytime of the season.
Preferably public land. I've got bad hips and cant be lifting my canoe any longer, so Im stuck to fishing on the shore. If you have
any ideas of places let me know. Id be grateful for the advice.
Minnesota or North Dakota advise welcome.
Oh, Ill be fishing at night mostly. Ill be using live bait, Chubs and leeches.
I am renting a lakehouse on Lower Prior Lake early July with my family from CA. What recomendations are out there for some easy fishing that require the minimim of gear. Also any thoughts on trapping Crawdads....
In South Central MN it seems like Walleye bites are never continuous. They may bite for 3 days max in one spot, then your having to look for a new spot. I think its because some of these lakes are so pressured and fished alot that they are not hungry and they get scared. Also with the weather, the weather always changes and the pressure changeschanges, all these factors will change how they bite. Although in Canada the fish always seem to bite...
Good luck fishing! And I hope this helped. Here's a pictures of a walleye I caught on a local lake in South Central MN on June 4, 2015
Feel free to post fishing reports here for South Central MN. Mankato-Northfield-Faribault-Waterville-Albert Lea-Austin-New Ulm-St Peter and all the towns in between. Let's hear about some fishin guys!!!!
generally speaking how deep of water is the weed edge out there on that point?? i'm thinking looking at the lake map and Pauls road on the north side of that point. depends on if there is anyone else around that area!!??
I like being away and alone!!!!!
Lol I fished the same spot last weekend it is by far better after dark though so diffently try that spot for crappie after dark. Because it was good during the day but insane at night. There are some 12 inch plus ones in there to.
Naw, I just spit on it a little. And I sorta mean that. When I was out hole hopping the minnow head froze while I was trying my other baits (usually have 3 set ups handy). A frozen minnow head floats on the hook so I had to thaw it out in my mouth and crunch the ice out of it with my teeth so it would hang right. Yah - hard core heathen! 😄 Anything to save the hands I guess even though it was my last try before heading into warmth.
Nice walleye, I have caught several walleyes while fishing crappies. If there are smaller 4-6 inch crappies around there will be Walleyes not far away. Lately several guys I have chatted with claim they see crappies on the Vex's but they won't bite. I wonder if those are really shiners? As there are lots of shiners in Buffalo lake, and several other lakes here in central Mn, have large amount of shiners roaming the lakes.
I use minnows in several different areas, and sizes can make a difference as well. If the crappies are biting good, even fatheads will work and take the bigger ones at that. if it's slow smaller minnows, down to a size 16 trout bug on a drop shot.
