A group of friends and I are renting a cabin on Stalker this weekend through tuesday of next week. I have not fished the lake before and am wondering what to expect and some possible tips on what to use and how to use it. We would like to get into some walleyes and possibly some crappies if possible. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Stalker is a great lake, with a bunch of great looking structure. Check out the map of it on the DNR website under the lake finder section. The map is an .pdf or .tif format.

With as cool as it has been, I would try some crappie minnows under a slip bobber along the bullrush beds. There are some big stands of bull rush on the west end, and may hold some nice crappies.

The southwest corner has a couple of small lobes seperated by a channel. Work the channel areas for some panfish.

The main body of the lake has three distinct mid lake sunken islands, with sharp drops around some of the edges. Troll these edges w/ lindy rigs or jig combos during the daylight hours.

In low light or dark conditions, try pulling some plugs on some if the big shorline flats.

If you have a depth finder, it will make fishing this lake a lot easier. You can go from six feet to over forty in a couple of boat lengths in spots.

      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
