I'm new to the area and new to walleye fishing. I need help with appropriate rigs for August fishing. Dept? Any particularly good lake near Fergus? Leeches? Plugs? Which plugs best? Thanks gang.

This time of year, I would pull raps on the 7-10 foot shore break on Ottertail at dusk and into the evening.

Got back from Norway Lake by underwood. Not a thing! Only caught like 8 bass (threw them back) and caught a few norkies..Nothing too big. Still a nice day to be on the lake. But ottertail is good trollin raps at nite as gissert mentioned. Umm..Maybe stalker, havent fished there in a while but there are some decent walleyes in there. Focus on breaks and islands..Good luck!

Thanks guys. I have heard Stalker is a real tough lake to fish-too much weed or too much structure?? Have also heard the bass fishing in there is getting better. I've seen a few boats on there but not many and you would think if the fishing was any good there'd be more out there.
Did you catch the bass on Norway trolling? Any size to 'em?

Nope, never trolled for them. Just throwing out texas rigged plastics into the reeds and focusing on pockets.

Actually, the best luck we've had this year has been using a Lindy Rig and a long leader with flourescent Orange Gamagatsu hooks and a green bead and a leech, usually on deep bars 20 to 25 feet. Good Luck

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
