White Earth Lake - Fall Walleyes

Recommended Posts

TroutYammer

I used to fish eyes on White Earth when I was a kid (30 +years ago)and it was a fun lake during the summer. I want to try White Earth Lake for fall walleyes this year and see if the lake looks the same after all these years.

Does anyone know if White Earth lake is any good in the fall or am I just wasting my time? Ant tips would be greatly appreciated.

Fish with light line (4-6) and 1/8-1/4 oz lindy rig sinker. Use a crawler and fill it full of air and go as slow as you can. Get on the water an hour before sunrise and start trolling shallow on the breaks and work deeper as the sun comes up. They stick to those breaks like fat kids at the candy store. Key is air in the crawler to get them to float and stay as light and move slowly.

Rumor has it that WE is heating up a bit. Bait shop in Waubun reported some good reports being mentioned. I didn't have much luck last week - caught one 12 inch eye - couple bass and couple perch - none keeper size though. I was only out for about 4 hours and didn't get out until after 8am - so I'll blame that for my ineffectiveness. smile.gif

Thanks guys for the response. I'll be heading up around Mid-Sept and try Nite Crawlers. 30-years ago we always used minnows but I am willing to give Crawlers a try.

Thanks...I'll let you know how my trip goes when I get back.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
