Need a 'sure thing' walleye lake for Aug. 1, 2 weekend

Recommended Posts

Scott M

Where is a sure thing Walleye lake in this neck of the woods? I will be staying in Bigfork. I drifted all across Jessie lake around this time last year with no luck, wouldn't mind going back if I knew there was a bite on. I've got my parents out and they never get a chance to fish, so I'd like to it to be something special. We aren't looking for anything more than a good time, and we probably won't keep much more than a few to fry up. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. smile.gif

Good luck with your trip, but the only Sure Thing I know is that there is no such thing as a sure thing.

An "almost sure thing" would be just fine. I heard from a guy at work today that he dragged a line all across Bowstring for 7 hours and got nothing. Sounds like its the dead seas up there.

Check out the report by Otter on the Bemidji forum. Looks like you need to head a little west to get on a hot-bite.

Hey all,

Thanks for the sudden outpouring. I guess I'll do Jessie or Bowstring and hit the bait shops on the way up. Good luck to all this weekend!

Hey all,

Back from the trip. It went great. Don't know if anyone would agree with me or not but after my first trip to Bowstring I would call it a poor-man's Mille Lacs. We caughts lots of eater sized Walleyes before the rain hit us on Friday and a few more when we went out on Sunday. I want to thank everyone one more time for all the tips on lakes, and not to be holier than thou, but to just say that when you get a nice tip like that be sure to not abuse such a privelege and thank those who helped you. Thanks again and good fishing!

I was also gonna mention that I saw a truck with fishingminnesota.com on the back window Sunday morning at the M&H gas station in Grand Rapids. It had goose slayer on the side and a bunch of other goose decals on the topper. I was told that moderators get those fishingminnesota.com decals? So if it was you Jason, good to see you, or someone else, cool.

      My second year owning a cabin on Pine Island and this lake is humbling. We did ok Memorial weekend catching many small ones. I did catch my best walleye on the lake with a 24” off the dock. Didn’t do well this last weekend as it sounds I shouldn’t have forgot the leeches in the fridge. I hope to have better luck this weekend. It is still tough to have to come home and go back to work.

      I have got to find out how to do this photo shop stuff. It would be fun pranking the relatives on FB. No really I did catch those walleyes Machu Picchu!  😂

      No treeline in first pic cuz I was on the ocean… LOL  would be tooooo easy for leech to find so had to zap it.

      Hey, I recognize that spot!! I caught a couple fish there once!!
    • eyeguy 54
      Got the boat upgraded with  different depth finders and trolling motor so I could chase walter and had to test it today. Hit a local lake with a friend and we got 7.  Pulled spinners and slow death with 1 oz bouncers. First time after eyes with this boat.

      How did the pizza taste? I'm thinking that might not be too bad!

      Bowkill78, Most everything is going some place on the Clearwater lake. Bass, pike and walleyes. It all depends on your choice of equipment and what you hope to try for.  Panfish and bass are on beds, trolling can also hookup with a pike or walleye.

      Give them all a shot you will be there for 5 days.  Get a lake map before you go and look it over. It makes it easier for the resort folks to point out spots instead of just saying over there. 😀
