I was wondering if the DNR has started stripping eyes yet at cutfoot? Maybe I am a little early, but I would really like to get my son up there to see the "GIANTS" It is always a nice sight to see. Gets my blood pumping big time.

The northerns are in their spring spawning areas, but I'm not sure about the walleye stripping at Cutfoot. I would think this weekend they'll have fish in the nets, but not positive. I'm working all weekend and have connections that will let me know if they have fish in the nets or not. I'll post when I find out.

They are getting everything ready this coming week and will start but they will probably be getting walleyes by the next weekend. I'm excited to go see those big pigs too!

I heard they put the nets in last night, but I don't know if they have any fish in the nets yet. The couple streams I've checked around the D.R. area only have suckers and northerns in them. It should be any day now, especially with the warm up we're going to have. As soon as I hear or see some thing, I'll let you know.

Thank you for the information, I live in Rapids but never get much of a chance to check things out up there.

There are fish in the nets now, although I'm not sure on size. I'm sure there's some hawgs in there. Hopefully this warmer weather will keep up, they'll really start running then.

Was up there this morning. They had a lot of fish in the nets, and some big ones at that. They said this might be the last day if they reach their quota today.

I was up this past Saturday. Lots of fish in the nets! Hopefully some of those big ones will see me again during the Winnie Walleye Trail! I've often wondered what percentage of 'eyes the DNR comes through their nets? I can't see that all of the eye's in the system head towards Little Cutfoot. I'd guess maybe 25% come through their nets? Anyone else have any guess's or heard a % number from the DNR?

Brian, Have you fished the WWT? I am planning on fishing it this year. I will miss the first one due to my brother's wedding but will hit the rest. By the looks of the results, it's a tough one with that slot there. If you have, what did you think of it?
I think you're right about the big fish. Look at all the fish that are caught on the big lake on opener, post-spawn fish who might have traveled but have definitely not traveled all the way from little cut foot. Some are still spittin spum. I can't imagine all the big pigs that are spawning on the big lake--winni and cut foot. Good luck this summer and hopefully you find some of 'em. See ya there.

Hey trapper,
I've never fished the WWT before, so it'll be interesting to say the least. I'm fishing with a buddy here from D.R. That's too bad you have to miss the first one! I'm thinking the June and Sept. tourney's will be fairly easy fishing. I think July and August will be tougher. We should try to hook up and chase some trout once season opens! Let me know!

I suppose I can leave those walleyes alone for one day. We'll definitely have to hook up and hunt down some trout. Caught a bunch of crappies yesterday. They're up shallow now. Those crappies keep me going until opener. See ya on the water.
