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.

      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.
