Shore Fishing Walleye, Where?

Recommended Posts

Topwaterordie

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.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. Im normally fish for bass, with topwater lures, but Id like to start going after walleyes. I know Spring and fall are the best for shore fishing.

I was just hoping there was a place to setup mid summer/late summer. I guess Ill just keep catfishing in the Red River till temps go down. Ive tried fishing walleye

in the red river but it has always been so hard to find the right spot. I set up for walleye and I get Catfish all the time. lol

      Rumor has it a walleye that "likely" tipped the scales near 15 lbs was caught on a lake near Mille Lacs. From what I read, the fish was weighed the day after it was caught at 14.186 lbs and lost a couple ounces just in the time it was at the bait shop being weighed.

      Has anyone been out to big swan recently? Curious how the ice is and if there are spots to avoid as I’ve not fished this lake before. Looking to target cats as my other lakes have been lacking this year. Don’t need other people’s spots just ice conditions. Would like to bring out my 3/4 ton and 17’ IC if possible.

      Hey guys! First post so excuse me if I'm posting in the wrong spot. 
       
      I just moved to Elk River, MN and am feening for some fish. I have no idea where to go first but do any of you know any decent spots to get some Crappie or Walleye within a 45 min drive from Elk River? Any spots are greatly appreciated. 
       
      Thanks!!!!

      Anyone know of lakes with decent shore fishing near Mankato? I've gone to North Shore on Madison Lake but can't find any shore on other lakes near by. Any suggestions?

      A group of us recently made it up to Flag Island Resort for 3 days of multispecies ice fishing on Lake of the Woods. The accommodations and folks who worked at the Resort were top notch! Bending over backwards to put you on fish and make your trip one to remember.
       
      The Fishing - Day 1 it was decided to stay, somewhat, close to the Resort in the MN side of LOTW to target Walleye, Sauger and Perch due to 24+ hours of snow. We got into pretty good numbers of fish and some quality fished showed up as well! Below is a video of that action from Day 1.

      Ya I suppose I could use a blade proof glove.  On occasion if I'm with someone that is willing and able to clean a few fish, they'll do it for me.   That photo by eyeguy with all his knives kinda freaked me out.  If there's a serial finger chopper on the loose, we'll know who the guilty party is.

      Wow with only a month left of walleye fishing too go it has again been a brutal season on the shores of upper red lake. The grand lake that owes us nothing.  Last year it was brutally cold this week with wind chills below -60. I will have to say I'm happy were not having that right now  For the second time since my car accident I wet a line yesterday for 3 or 4 hours.  Th fishing report In old Minnesota after it was fished on a new spot Friday and Saturday was I'm a little out of practice. I was jigging a gold rattling flyer  while watching Boston legal.  The first fish hit my lure while I was lying on the bed. It caught me totally buy surprise as I was jigging. I set the hook while lying down. Trying to set up while keeping the line tight was not in the cards.  I quickly got another minnow on the lure  sent her down. 1 or 2 good jigs and I was marking a fish. Only it was not a fish but my quickly hooked minnow escaping off the lure. Another minnow, back down the hole. I guess I educated that fish as it looked a few times but only nibbled a couple times.  Mean while the rattle wheel went off around the bewitching hour. Rolling out of the bed with my brace on I go over give it a little line, but instead of setting the hook like I normally do.I pulled the line up real slow to feel the fish. I felt it on the line,set the hook and proceeded to rip it right out of its mouth. Glad I was not having fish on the menu as I packed it up a bit later with no fish to take home.  Ashey re grand daughter is up here helping out. Her and my great grand son bently john were going to spend the night out there so we will see how they did later today.   Well the best I can do on my fishing report is all the houses did manage to catch some fish the first 24 hours.as Ashly checked on all them Saturday.  Sean Joff and  a friend or relative from Florida were up Friday with there sleds. They managed to find a few fish even getting the guy from Florida his first walleye.  Kevin and his crew were ib Kentucky they also had a couple sleds. Not sure how they did in the house but they did find some fish where they went on there sleds. They even had a little run in with  a guy in a v-plow  Shane  and his wife were in montana I ran into then Saturday morning. They had landed 4 nice ones fishing large rainbow minnow on a plain red hook Saturday morning. From what I gathered from Ashley everyone was enjoying there stay.  Jonny boy and Richy  spent part of the day going out on there sleds looking for the elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. There elusive for a reason, they did find some little scuff it walleyes which was a good sign but no crappies.  We did get another shipment of black and red hoodies in with just a couple pink ones.  We only have one house rented later today so the guys have 3 days to get every thing reset for the up and coming weekend.  I did check the ice thickness Where old sota was  It was a solid 27 inches, that explained why there was no flood ing around the house

      Saw the pics and story hats off to the kids sounds like they earned it!

      sure is.  another thing that worked today was to go below them, then slowly come back above, stop then wiggle. crazy fish that's for sure. the smaller ones hammered it normal but the bigger ones were tricky.
