Early October Walleyes

Recommended Posts


Just looking for some pointers on where to go on Winni in the first week of October. Also, is there a certain bait I should use that will work better than others? I purchased a map of the lake so you can refer to certain landmarks and I should be able to find them on the map. I appreciate it.

Big; for first of october fishing i would try working the north shore to begin with. farley creek and pigeon river over towards the rock pile. also cutfoot really starts to get hot in october. mostly a jig and minnow bite but i myself like to stay with a crawler on a lindy for as long as i can get hold of good sized bait. best of luck. keep me posted.

Mn Walleye 1976

Last year we stayed in cutfoot for the first week of october and did great. We had lots of fish to eat, and even took our limits home. We had 20 guys up there last year. We will be up there again this year. I can't wait to get up there again. Hopefully the fish will be going again.

Big: Our fall bite is a little late this year. I like the rock piles on Stony point or the rocks on Ravens point. You got some good tips for the north shore so do try them to. I like the new Northeland glow watermelon 1/8oz jig and tip it with a fathead minnow. If you run into trouble we are on channel 18 with the marine radio. Good luck.

      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.

      Has been pretty slow lately. One night you do decent then the next nothing. Very hit or miss.

      Aren't there some great spots along the Mississippi south of the TC? I'm not familiar with that part of the state but it seems I've heard things.

      Is the night bite going?

      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.

      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before

      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor
