Purchase a Fisher map and fish emerged and submerged rock piles. Be observement of where other boats are fishing and refer to your Fisher map to see what structure and depth the boat is working.

When you arrive at the lake, ask around to see what baits and rigs are producing. Pulling Lindy rigs and jigging are the optimal way to boat walleyes.

SPend at least one early morning in the Ash river, pulling crankbaits.

I found a really good spot that doesn't show on the hotspots map.

After getting all of the way through the narrows, take an immediate left. About a quarter of a mile the very first main point on your left(an obvious point) has a 20-22 ft hole right in front of it. Most of the river runs at 8-15 feet.

Troll the edges of this hole(10-15ft) from early sun up. Use your favorite crank bait. I had success with Walli Divers and #8/#9 shad raps.

Your bait needs to be making contact occasionally with the bottom!

I guarantee non stop action until the sun makes an appearance, then it will simply shut off! There will be some "jacks" mixed in with the walleyes as well!

The only downfall of this location is all of the "cruiser" from the Ash River resorts, heading out to Kab and Namakan!

I thought it was kind of funny, watching all of these boats speeding by us to get out on the lake, while we were reeling them in!

Good luck and let me know if you get a big one on that spot!

      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
