DNR Stripping Walleye Eggs

Recommended Posts

huntfish44

Anyone know if the DNR are stripping the walleye eggs at the DNR headquarters yet. I know its pretty early yet with most lakes still having quite a bit of ice but just wondering so I could come up and watch for awhile. Pretty interesting stuff watching them handle all those walleyes!!

They started putting the posts in for the spawning platform this morning. They should have everything setup by the end of tomorrow. All we can do now is sit back and wait for the water temps to rise....

Looks like maybe Tuesday they will be stripping eggs. I'll find out on Monday if they'll be setting the leads out Monday night.

BTW, happy birthday

Hey all, where is the headquarters located that they do the stripping at? That might be neat to see!

New to the site and the area and hope to meet some of you out on the water.

Welcome too FM. The site is at the fisheries department located on Sallie Lakes. Go out on highway 59 from DL until you get too the BP, take a right, i believe its highway six, down the road a few miles you will see a brown sign that says where the department is. Just down the road there. Its real cool to see. I will probably miss it this year due to school, but definitly worth your time to see.

Deadhead will have more direct directions for you!! wink.gif

Good Luck

from DL go south on hwy. 59, take a right at co. hwy. 6 and go west about 1/2 mile. take a left on co. hwy. 19 and you'll run right into it. Also, we were down there yesterday and saw a couple nice northerns in there.

Sweet, I will have to stop by and take a look. I saw the hatchery between richville and ottertail must be getting ready to get to work too because there were guys pulling in there today. Do you just walk down and look at the water, or will nets be out or??? I dont' know anything about this, and am looking for things to do just to get out of the house:

when you get down to the Area Office, please stay to the left and park at the County parking lot. There is a picnic shelter there (it is behind the hatchery and shop areas). Walk down to the bridge at Dunton Locks. The Walleye spawning platform is setup at the outh of the river and all the nets are set up. You'll be able to watch the operation from the bridge or on the other side of riffle.

Be there by 830 am, that's usually when they start.

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎

      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).

      Thanks for the share Fitz! I noticed you guys had a couple of nice ones on saturdays event, i was curious how thatcame about. Congratulations on the crazy weekend!

      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.

      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!
