Walleye Bite Little Falls South

Recommended Posts

Tour. Pro 175

I was wondering if anybody has been fishing Walleyes on the river S. of Little Falls in the last week. I had excelent fishing on Memorial weekend, pulling crankbaits in 10-12 ft. Last weekend was much slower after the cold front on Fri. Looking forward to getting out again this weekend any info would be great

Peace and Fishes

Tour. Pro 175

I fished the river on Sat. and Sun. only a couple of hours each day, chores around the house took top priority this weekend. Sat. evening we pulled crankbaits again in 10-14 ft. and found good success boating 9 Walleyes four in the 16"-18" range the rest smaller also some nice smallmouth with the largest being a 19.5" that took my four and a half year old son some time to get in. Sun. the Walleyes did'nt really go for our crankbait offerings, we switched to a jig and redtails and fished some of the rock piles and as long as our redtails held out we had success. Its hard to get these minnows but as far as I am concerend they are the best minnow you can use on the river. The water temp. was 67 degrees. I am always amazed at the number of small walleyes in this system I often wonder if they ever grow up I know they do but why don't the bigger ones show up on the end of my line as often as these little guys. The old saying go's big bait big fish somebody forgot to tell these 10" walleyes that are inhaling my 6" redtails and crankbaits this.

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs
