Looking to do some late fall (October) walleye hunting in the BWCA this year! Any lake suggestions?

Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

Questions.

Would you like something on a motor route.

Stick to or fish smaller lakes.

Travel distance.

How many days.

I always hear about Basswood and Sag, but I was hoping for smaller lakes/no motor. Thanks for the responses!

 

Anyone know much about Gabbro and Bald Eagle S/SE of Ely?

I fish, therefore I lie

Consider the lakes in the Whitefish, Timber, Frear, Elbow loop NE of Finland.  LOTS of walleye and very few fishermen this time of year.

   I've entered at Brule lake many times.   The Cones are an easy one to get into or South Temperance.     You might find that is as far as you need to travel for walleyes.  If your wanting to turn it into a canoe trip keep heading North and to Horseshoe, Gaskin, and Caribou.

If you're considering Caribou or Horseshoe, be sure to spend time on Swamp Lake (one portage south from Poplar lake). There aren't any campsites, but a high walleye population make it a favorite (shhhhhh! Sorry guys) among the locals.  Work around the islands and reefs this time of year and you shouldn't be disappointed.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.

      There were a PILE of big fish caught out there today, but yeah, that wind was still pretty tough despite the warmer temps.  My boy caught a 28 1/2 and a 29!  He bested his best on the same day!

      Awesome! Sounds like fun. Staying on a lake I’ve fished a fair amount last few years and struggling. Can’t get nothing to go. Fished from 4-16 ft. Been reading some articles to use electronics to mark fish in deep water (20-30fow) so maybe I’ll give that a try tomorrow. Tried trolling for pike to and again nothing. Also tried bass fishing and yep your right nothing. Man I’m really struggling but I’ve never fished this late in the season so that doesn’t help. But I don’t think I’m the only one struggling quite a few anglers out and didn’t see any fish caught.

      Hi my name is Royce. I was a live bait addict for many years and just could not kick the habit. Every day I would have to stop at the bait store to get my fix and every night I would come home with minnow and wax worm juice all over my fingers and a lot of fish to eat and let a lot go that were YUUUUGGGGGGGe 😝😜🙃

      I was on the windy side of a small lake for the action. hit 3 spots calmer and the 4th paid off. my money spot was a snooze. LOL anchored in 10 to 12 feet and bobbered down 4 feet above the weeds.  1 inch gulp alive minnows in emerald and chartreuse on a 4mm widowmaker ice jig again. the bigger ones were biting crazy light. any small change in bobber action and set the hook for the nicer fish. Smaller ones smacked it. gills and crappies acting the same and in the same area give or take a few feet. Pinched off a weight from a different bobber and put on the comal ( I am really liking these). Just the yellow stayed above the water and easy to see the nibble. Had a boat next to me with round bobbers and they struggled bigtime.
