Good Area Crankbait Lakes

Recommended Posts

ivegottabite

Judging from another post, there are some guys that get into pulling cranks once things warm up and the fish get more scattered. I'm not looking for spots on lakes or even your small honey hole lakes, but I was wondering what some of the area lakes are that are good for pulling cranks. Also, just a general idea on depth on some of these lakes and maybe the time of day?

I want to spend alot more time learning trolling this year so just looking for a few ideas to get me rolling. I tried Big C late last summer and caught a couple right away but that was it. crazy.gif

Some good trolling lakes would be Ottertail, Big C, Big Mcdonald, Rose and Long (vergas). Other than OT and Big C these walleyes might be anywhere from surface to 35 ft down. Electronics pay a big key in discovering depth. They might be suspended in 40 ft, might be 90 ft. Most of the time i wait until closer to sun down before i start searching for they walleyes. It takes some time to get this down, and i dont have it down.

OT and Big C are two of the best that I know of.

OT might be the best of all.

So is anyone going to be crankin during the full moon this coming weekend? I am itching to get out and have a few lakes in mind--- Big C and possibly Rose?

If anyone is looking to get out Friday night I will have a spot in my boat. I wouldn't mind hooking up with someone who has a little knowledge on either of these lakes. Drop me a line if interested motorhead327@hotmail.com

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
