Walleye report around Fargo???

Recommended Posts

Scoot

I've been swamped at work lately and haven't been out to chase old marble eyes. Anyone doing anything for walleyes in the Fargo area? Tribs or Red producing much yet? If not, I'm thinking after this little shot of cool air comes through this week we might see some good walleye activity kick into gear.
Who's been out and what do ya have to report?

For numbers they are not piled up anywhere in particular, that I can see anyway. The tribs are a no-go, too low for most to be anything special.....yet. Still doing my rain dance so it may change yet?

I have C&R 3 walleye over 29" this past few days, off "New Rock" areas. No live baits, just jigs and big minnow bait style cranks, all the "Usual Suspects". wink.gif

It may take a bit of leg work and casting before you score....but it is well worth it when you get that "THUD". The water is clear so they are feeding as you would expect them to under that circumstance Scoot.

I have a spot we should snoop over some evening before Saturday. Ya gots any Kermit's Scoot? wink.gif

I will be busy Saturday, and from the 29th on to Mid-October I will not be around much.

Drop me a call Scoot!

Scoot the area I had in mind is like a greased wall right now. Getting down would be a snap, one very quick trip for sure.

Getting back out again.....well....that may take a helicopter.

Lets see if the sun pops out before we attempt that spot. I don't want to look like Homer Simpson on a otter slide, do you?

You first Eh!

I'll try anything once! I don't know if you got my e-mail, but I'll be done at 4:00 or so today. If you're interested in going out then, give me a shout- 476-1850. If not, we'll wait for a nicer day.

      Well I went out Sunday of opening weekend. Ugh. I felt like I was hunting the Congo! So darn hot and buggy. Thank god for thermacell! I did pass on a small 3 pt. It was fun to watch him, he was making rubs on trees all over around me. I'm actually glad nothing else came out, dealing with it in that heat would have taken a lot of fun out of the process.

      i've been up on Sandpoint a number of times that late in the year. I always focused on main lake drop off. especially sand if you can find it. Walleyes, big crappies and smallmouth will all be congregated in those areas. One spot I fished dropped off into 70 feet. I usually fished 20-30 ' depths oh, I should mention. Usually we used lindy rigs with minnows. Jigs did work too. especially if you slowly drop it and feel the strike on the fall.

      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.
