Does anyone have any advise for me about Stalker Lake. My family just purchased a cabin on the lake and I am going to be there for the opener and was wondering what my best bets are going to be? Are the Walleyes even going right now with this cold weather or is it going to be more of a Crappie weekend? Any Advise would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Stalker is a fine lake for many species. It is important that you have a good depth finder at times. That lake has a lot of great structure. There are many tapering points that can produce walleyes now, as well as good structure of the three sunken islands.

When it warms up a bit, start looking for crappies around the bullrushes on the west side and in the narrows leading to the outlet.

Good Luck!

Gissert,

Thanks for the advise. I was a little worried about the walleye bite with all of this cool weather but I will give those points and islands a try. What has been going the best lately?

Once again Thanks

Well, I have not fished since the ice went out.

For walleyes, I would try a Lindy rig with a leech or a crawler. Towards evening, maybe try a shiner under a slip bobber if the wind dies.

Good luck, and post how you do.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
