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.

      I am going to check some local lakes today

      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      Fish went deeper durring the day today. Not easy cracking the code this year

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.

      I just got a report from nextdoor that we have 8-10 inches.  
    • Mike89
