Where is a good start to find some walleyes on opener. Deeper flats or the shallower flats. Any Ideas?

Well I couldn't make it up to Winnie, so I wound up fishing on East Rush and the walleye were deffinitly not in the bitting mood. I fished everywhere on the lake from sunrise to around 1pm and not 1 single eye. I did manage to get 3 pike around 5 lbs. to take home though. I'm going to cook the pike tomorrow for dinner, It's not walleye but fresh fish is good anytime.

oOn the contrary, three of us boated 55 eyes,18 over 15" were boxed. seems they were very titely schooled cause most of the people I talked to said they 0,d out. deep weed lines were holding but seemed like only a few spots. 11 came of first spot on jig and minnnow, second spot was the mother load. spinners and minnows worked well only 6 on leeches cause we ran out of heads. We caught fish all day long except when we had to fill our bellys. 9:30 to 12:00 am and 5:30 to 7:00pm seemed to be prime hours. best of luck.

I also noticed the walleyes were tightly schooled, in deeper water. When do you think they will go back to their normal patterns, of shallower weed lines. I am going to give it another try tonight.

fished west rush for 3 hours this morning checked alot of deep water structure did not even mark a fish. with the warm sun we had today they where probably warming up today. saw lots of bait between the islands but nothing around or under then. water is so clear with no wind you could see 11 feet down. bet there bayed up relaxing catching some rays. think the next system that comes through will spark em off again. good fishing. yesterday on the east i did get 4 eyes out of 5ft round noon in the weeds

Last night I was out from 7:00 till 8:30, caught a 13" & 16" in about 32 ft. Saw 1 other boat catch about a 10" in the same spot. Missed a couple of nice hits. I can't wait till they pick up again. Tryed several spots, only seemed to be in the deeps for now.

      I also have a north facing cabin at the bottom of the hill and I have the Weboost as well.  without it I just barely have reception and with it mounted to the outside of the cabin I can get enough reception for calla and texts (2-3 bars) and slow internet. I plan on mounting it in a tree this spring and should get better reception yet. I paid $399 at best buy for mine about a year ago.

      cg2, Welcome to the forum.   You may try looking at the DNR Lake finder site to look up some of the lakes in your new area for their test results.  Good luck.

      Hello all,   I am new to the area and don't know where to begin fishing. I'm looking for a lake around Mankato that has walleye / crappies in it. I would like to make it out a few times this fall yet and then hit the ice hard. Any advice on what lakes to start with? There's so many that I don't know how to choose which one to go to.

      Gonna try and get out for a bit over the weekend and hit some shore spots. Will post a report if they bite.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.
