Hey guys. Just wondering about fishing these two lakes for Walleye. Anyone fish them and could give me some hindsight on them? Would appreciate it very much. Thanks, Junk.....

Junk,

I wish I had some information on Sturgeon, but all I can tell you is it's a good bass lake in the summer. That's the only time I've fished it. From the DNR survey, it looks as if there are decent numbers of walleye.

Can anyone lend a hand here?

Hit both lakes this past weekend (12/21-12/22). About 12" of ice on both lakes, they're starting to drive.....but not me! Did poorly on Sturgeon Lake (1 perch). We went in at 7PM and stopped to talk to a local on the way out and he said that's when the bite starts! OH WELL! Fished Island Sunday morning and caught 2 little walleyes and 5 or 6 small perch. Fished near the public access on both lakes.

I fished Island on monday morning. we caught one little walleye and a bunch of little perch. we fished right near the public access. there was a good 14" of ice. we drove out a little ways from the access but did not go far. I would appreciate any more reports or tips for Island.

We have a cabin in Willow River, and my dad just called with a report from up there. Guys have been hitting the eyes on Sturgeon in the morning, wish I knew where and in what depth but thats all I got. He is trying to nail down a couple spots and I am going to head up there with him on Thursday. I'll let you know how we do.

Was out on Sturgeon yesterday, tough day on the ice. First off we were in the wrong spot on the lake, and didn't know until the sun came up. After we saw where we were supposed to be and moved it was about 8am. After that we got two small pike and three nice walleye strikes but none on the ice. Going to try and get out this weekend at least one day. Good luck.

Well we were out on Sturgeon this past weekend, with mild success. Thurs. night caught two nice eyes, one was 19 one was 15 1/2, missing a couple more. Friday Morning caught two more and one pike. Perch came in thick around 9am. Overall it was a good weekend, ecspecially in the Red Oak Fri. night! Night bite was definetley better! Fishing just west of the "island" straight out from the access.

Been hearing of people catching nice walleyes and northerns on Sturgeon right in front of YMCA camp Miller. As for Island the crappie bite has been extremely slow.

      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!  😂

      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. 😀
