Headed to Walleye Retreat

Recommended Posts

TerryAnd11

Hey guys we are heading to walleye retreat resort this Saturday through the following Saturday. I have never fished the lake in the Summer and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations. Also anyone stayed at walleye retreat? Was wondering if it was nice and any good fishing spots near it? Thanks in advance.

Walleye Retreat is fine. It doesnt have<BR>a restaurant or bar but it is close to <BR>several of both.<P>It is near some of the best early season<BR>action on the lake (the Morris Point Washout)<BR>close in fishing and USUALLY going pretty <BR>good by now.<P>Fishing was real bad every where opening<BR>weekend. Then it got real good for a week<BR>and has now gone the other way again. The<BR>weather has been cool and crappy for 3 weeks<BR>now. There is a pretty good chance that if<BR>the weather stabilizes just a little the <BR>fish would go again.<P>There is plenty of water so the lake level<BR>will not be a problem for you<P>Good Luck<P>------------------<BR>Curt Quesnell<BR>NorthCountry Outdoors Radio

I agree with Curt, Walleye Retreat is a nice place with well maintained grounds and well appointed cabins. No cable so if you want to watch a ballgame, you'll need to mosey over to Ballard's or Sportsman's. Cyrus may have cable in the bar.<P>Good fishing off of Pine Island or you Zippel Bay. If the wind cooperates, you should do great.

Curt and Sakman Thanks for the information. It sounds like Pine Island is the spot to be so we won't have to run all the way across the lake lol. Just getting ready to leave now. Thanks and Ill report when I get back.

      Made a few modifications to my pontoon.   I thought it would interesting to summer ice fish in the same spots I catch all of my winter walleyes.   Don

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.
