Fish Head

How is the walleye fishing on Birch Lake in October? I've never fished Birch before, but I've always wanted to. I have a little free time this weekend and was wondering if Birch would be a good place to fish eyes this weekend?

Anyplace else you would recommend?

Thanks for the reply Northlander. Those are definately the traditial fall hotspots. I just had a chance to be in the Ely area, so I thought maybe I'd run out on Birch. I wish I was going on your trip to the Rainy River that you posted about, but I can't break away at that time. I was up on the Rainy/LOTW last week and absolutely froze my ####'s off!!

Have fun on your trip!

Fish head, Shagawa is an easier lake to read for walleyes than the sprawling and difficult Birch, and fall fishing on Shag is excellent. Fish a 1/8 to 1/4 oz jig with a good-sized minnow and cast into shoreline or island shores and sloping points in the morning and evening, working the bait slowly. They've finally finished redoing the public landing along the south shore near Grand Ely Lodge, so getting on and off is easy again.

I was on Birch last weekend. I was freezing windy and snowed like crazy. We had no luck with any species. We targeted walleye and only caught one 16.5" and a 22" northern in two full days of fishing. I would try somewhere else. The water is low and there are alot of rocks to watch out for.

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff
