Horseshoe walleyes & panfish

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! Have the crappies moved into the shallow bays? How's the walleye bite? I'll be coming up this weekend for cats, but my brother wants to try for walleyes & crappies. So how are things going out there? Any info would be great. Thanks, Vern

The crappies are in the bays and the walleye bite is on. It was a good opening weekend for most. That should be all the information you need

We did well on the waldo and northern,the catfishing was super,but could not find the panfish. At least, not any big enough to eat.
We tried Mud lake's bays,and some bays on Cedar Island, but not much luck with da sunnies or crappies.With all the fishable water,I know they are there somewhere!!

Thanks for the info fellas! Hey tumbleweed, I'll be using cutbait and fishing in the river or near the mouth. Were you fishing in one of the lakes? I suppose they are pretty shallow looking for warm water. Thanks, Vern

Vern, in most bays the cats have moved out as the water is warming up fast. There are still a few in the deeper bays, but the river would be my choice for the weekend.ScottS

Vern, We used the electric motor and fished the shoreline like ya would for bass.The best technique was a nightcrawler under a float.We found them all over Cedar Island and Koetter lakes.Real hotspots were where trees were down in the water.(A good pair of binocs will help scan the shoreline quickly for this)Good luck,I wish I could get back up there soon,but am getting ready for a trip to the Whitefish Chain next week!!

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.
