Hey guys,
Whats the story about Pulaski? Is it a good lake to fish? Seems like it would be a good crappie and walleye lake but everyone I talk too and everything that I've read here seems to have very little success on Pulaski. I did ok with bass early last year. The pike fishing seems to be good too.
Any thoughts?

------------------
If it aint a BASS, it might as well be a rough fish.

Hey Dan...Andy here...

Pulaski is a great lake! It's very difficult to fish for walleyes though. It has a great forage base. All the walleyes I've caught there in the summer, (this was the first year I tried icefishing it, to no avail!) have been very fat and healthy. They don't miss a meal in there. Another thing, is the water clarity. When Duane and I were there 2 weeks ago, we were amazed that we could see our jigs 17 feet down!! That makes for extremely tough fishing...my guess is that lake would be best under a good snow cover and at nighttime (as in after midnight!)
This lake has good sized bass too! Good numbers of crappies, great northerns, lots of sunfish...it's just an awesome lake, that puts up a good fight...doesn't relinquish fish that easy, and I like that! --AK grin.gif

A couple of us went out on Pulaski yesterday for some R&R from the crowds on Buffalo. Could actually hear yourself think out there. Fished on 26-34 feet, marked a lot of suspended fish with really light bites at 20-22 ft, c&r'ed a couple northerns on jigs 18" from the bottom, nothing on the tipups. Didn't see anyone else's tipups flag either. As for the sunken island, there were 5 houses on it, otherwise, I think everyone else is still trying to figure out a strategy for Pulaski.

I was out on pulaski early ice 3-4 inches. we fished just off the island and caught 4 northerns no walleyes. Had some luck last summer in the same area.

I have been out as recent as last week (tues)...

I've also worked very, very hard to find the eyes on Pulaski... tried a bunch of different spots, many presentations, at many times of the day, and still none...

They gotta be holed up somewhere none of us would expect, or, they wont bite... I remember someone here discussing how fat they are, and it is true... I've often remarked at how round they are, even down by the tails... there must be a ton of food for them...

The only thing I havent tried is really deep water (45'+)... are any of you aware of any other situations where walleyes have been found that deep??? I'm ready to try anything in the next six days...

Hey WKSparrow,
If you have some free time would you like to try for them fat Pulaski walleyes one last time on Sunday evening?

Hey WKSparrow
I would definatly try 45 feet of water fished Koronis this weekend and caught four small walleyes and about 15 perch in 40 feet of water. Koronis is a very clear lake too, you can actually see bottom in 25 feet of water. From what I've noticed the bite on clear lakes is almost always after dark. I've only fished Pulaski in the summer and never had any real luck.

BUT, what about tomorrow or friday??

That probably wont work for me because I work in the evening. If your plans change and you want to fish let me know. Good luck up north.

      Work has pretty much kept me from fishing since late May😕 Did have the chance to hit the water for a few hours yesterday. I opted to hit the river for some smallie action with my limited time. The Sippi didn't disappoint, the brown bass had the feed bag on big time!. I hooked over 30 fish in 3 hrs, most being 15-17inchers with a few bigger and a few smaller mixed in.   Weightless stick baits rigged on a 1/0  is all I needed to throw.

      Hi all - new to the forum.  I live in NE Wyoming and am an avid fly fisherman.  While I love fishing for trout out west, warm water species on the fly is a blast.   Me and a buddy are headed out this coming weekend for a BWCA trip.  We have a couple of days on the front end of the trip to fish.  I'm planning on towing my drift boat from NE Wyoming and have spot picked out in North Dakota to float for smallies on the fly.  I'm looking at trying to get an additional float in somewhat near Ely before our entry into the Boundary Waters.  It's a 16' drift boat and doesn't really draft much.  I'm planning on having a small trolling motor just in case I need some additional power.  Looking mainly to target smallmouth and pike.   I've looked at a few areas to float, but wanted some advice.  I have a few options that I think meet what I'm looking for:   1) St. Louis River near Hoyt Lakes.  Looked like there are couple of access points to launch and take out below Hwy 110 2) Cloquet River - Hwy 7 to the mouth. 3) Bigfork River - From Ivan Crawford to Reedy Flats   Can anyone provide any advice these or provide any other recommendations?   Thanks in advance!

      I have been doing pretty good bass fishing locally.  A lot of numbers, but lacking in really big quality fish that I have caught the last two seasons.  Biggest I could catch this season so far is 18 inches.

      Welcome to the forum. Downriggers work best for suspended fish in deep water. Most river's are shallow and rocky. If you want to fish the bottom in a river a bottom bouncer might be best to not lose a lot of expensive gear. Imo. Good luck. 
    • DeEon
      I have a Cannon Optima and Iam anxious to try downriggers for walleye.  There is a bottom tracking feature on Optima.  I think most walleyes are close to bottom so I think it is a good tactic.  I am, however, nervous about using Fishhawk XD4 with on river.  A screwup would really be expensive!

      i'm not real involved yet. my first meeting. long story but my parents belonged to it years ago. after the cabin lake had the 2 consecutive years of severe winterkill i dogged the heck out of the fisheries people in grand rapids.🤭 i found out through the watershed assoc they talked them into restocking sunfish and bass into the lake. they did that this past june. so i figured for the 15 bucks join!!!!!   my next battle is with the township......🤣 trying to get them to grade part of our road going into the cabin!!!!! i already sent the letter but havent heard from them yet. since i've retired from being a union thug.......i gotta pick a few battles to keep my skills sharp!!!!!!!!🤪🤭👍
    • Kettle
      That's awesome that you are involved in that! I hope you have a good trip up!
    • smurfy
      I'm heading up sometime the last week in Aug . I joined the Jessie lake watershed assoc and they have a meeting on the 27 I want to attend.

      Definitely in the dog days of summer. Catching a few walleye here and there on the river. Hasn't been too hot which makes me hopeful for an early fall fishing season. I'll post more when the fish turn their feed bags on and the leaves start falling. Until then I'll just work more and get winter gear ready
