Any descent walleye spawns going on??

Recommended Posts

GoggleEye

Hey all, I was just wondering if there are any world class walleye spawns going on in the BWCA or Internationall Falls areas?? I just got back from Depere, WI on the fox river and I want to hit one more walleye spawn where there is a good chance on landing into a trophy. I want to try something different other than the fox river or the menominee river like I do every year. Those two rivers are getting old and it is a long drive across the entire state. Thanks for any help with my walleye sickness!

Most walleye fishing up in NE Minn is closed now until the May opener. Around Baudette, the Rainy River season stays open longer, however, and the RR starts putting out big pigs as soon as the ice goes off, right about now. You should check the Rainy River board here on FM for current info.

Rainy River is really about the only show right now. Make sure you read the Rainy River forum so you dont drive all that way to find mudd and no bite.

It might be worth your time to check out the Missippi right now by Red Wing. I've never fished it but the big girls usually spawn below the dams, wing dams about now. Sorry it's not Northern MN, but it's fairly close to where you're at.

I wish I could make it up to the Rainy for the first time, but I hear it closes on the 14th. Not gonna work for me this year. Nolte, I hear ya on the missi, I have been down there before and it is a descent bite, I was just looking for new spots to try before the spawn is over. I think I am stuck with the missi for the rest of the year! I just hate that murky water though.

      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell

      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
