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, Coast Guard..... for not making ships flush their bilge at sea.   For decades after the problem was apparent.

      And at first ice, drop them down the hole....  😀🤣

      Especially early season while you still have green weedbeds. You hit the nail on the head.

      Is anyone interested in pheasant hunting in SD in Mid or Late November?  I used to do more of it but kinda got busy with really young kids for a few years there and lost the dog around the same time. I basically gave it up for a while. I would like to start making a trip or two back out to SD and would really like to meeting some other guys who enjoy the sport.  It would be great to find a few new friends around the same age +/- 10 years and maybe some of the same interests in fishing and hunting. Live in the Twin Cities area so we could drive down if you are in the area or just meet out in SD sometime.

      I do not believe that is from Red. It shows sunny's under the smallest fish and according to the DNR, there are none in Red.

      On the main basin... As water temps approach mid 40's, walleye anglers reporting strong fall bite. Good fish caught despite a lot of precipitation this past week.  Clear weather in forecast.  Walleyes staging at various south shore locations in 20-29'.  Jig and frozen shiner the ticket. Anchor up and jig with gold, glow red, or gold/orange.  Fish are very active. On the Rainy River... Strong walleye activity continues.  Jig and frozen shiners continue to be go to method with some anglers also trolling crankbaits.  Shiner run has slowed for the moment but good numbers of walleyes in river.  Sturgeon have the feed bag on.  The sturgeon catch and release season goes though April 23, 2019.  The bite is on!     Up at the NW Angle... Fishing continues to be excellent.  Limits of walleyes being caught in 14 - 25'.  Jigging still producing.  Look for areas of current in neck down areas and outside of bays.  Fall crappie bite continues strong.  Big pike are making their presence felt, like it or not!  Muskie trollers boating and releasing good numbers of fish.  The best fall fishing is yet to come!

      Wow, it would be interesting to see if the big winners Cory, Justin and Dave all drove down from Canada together and where they hide the fish to get across the boarder?  🤔  😆
