Walleyes on Whitefish?

Recommended Posts

I haven't been to Whitefish since the end of May. Hoping my luck will be better for some eyes than it was then. Anyone know where they've been hiding lately?

the fingers on upper whitefish would be a good place to start especially if you have a west wind. and i caught a few off of pickerel point and the flat south of it.

good luck!

i had the best luck with a plane hook and a 1/4 ounce sinker 5 ft from it. i used leeches. i was fishing any where from 30 to 9 ft i just would drift over the structure and wait for a bite. but i think a floating jig would work well to. i think the eye fishing will be slow because of the boat trafic because the 4th is coming up but im going to still give it a try and maby i can get some nice walleyes. hope to see you out there ill be in a crestliner fish hawk.

I got out Friday Morning and within 20 minutes had managed a 4lb and 6lb eye on Whitefish (both released). Definitely a great way to start the holiday weekend. Only got one more eater size the next morning. These were caught on a jig/leech.

i didn't do a whole lot of walleye fishing done i went after pike and bass most of the time. i managed to catch about 15 small pike trolling with deep diving crankbaits along the weed edges. and two 3lb bass. i did get a 21 inch walleye trolling with crankbaits along the weed edge on the north shore of lower whitefish. so i had a good week end to say the least. ill be back up on friday morning and i'll be going for some walleyes and hopfully i will be able to get some in the boat.

good luck hope to see you out there!

when I read your post I thought I was reading something I wrote.

That's exactly what I did and pretty much exactly what I caught.

Bunch of small pike, couple nice bass and a 21in walleye, all CPR'ed

I was on Pickeral Point.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.
