I will be heading up to baby lake in less than a month and was wondering what the fishing report was. Looking to catch a big walleye, so what will be the best bet to do so in mid June.

Your best bet for a big walleye would be to go to Woman or Leech....

I would agree... Baby has a fair share of smaller fish, and the large ones that are there are so few and far between that you'll be fishing a long LONG time to get one... My largest in 27 years of fishing the lake is roughly 22 inches.

Woman or Leech would be my place to go as well for walleyes...

Joe...how many days left? I've got 9 left after today... You up this weekend?

2 years ago, I was on Baby for Musky Opener with my brother and his room mate. As we were working our way through some bays, we could see schools of walleyes on the bottom in 17 feet of water. Of course, we didn't have any walleye gear with us, so I went back to the cabin to pick it up. By the time I got back, the wind picked up a little and we weren't able to see the schools anymore. We did manage to pick up a few with jigs and shiners, but we were more interested in Muskies. We really didn't have that great of luck with muskies so we decided to go to another area lake for some action..... Anyway, after the sun set and we were done muskie fishing, we decided to go back to Baby and troll Shad Raps. WOW!!!! I have never experienced anything like this in my life. We boated 29 fish in an hour and a half trolling in 3-6 feet of water with #5 Perch Shads. We had triples on three times! We also boated two fish over 30 inches! So I guess my point is sometimes the big and best fishing is right under your nose, you just need to sniff it out. Don't get me wrong, you would probably have a little better chance with a trophy on Woman or Leech, but there are other lakes that produce just as well!

Lake Dr-

We will be there this weekend. Would love to know the area you had luck w/the walleys's trolling Shad Raps? 3years ago, around this time of year we had great luck catching Crappies on Mann but have not seen any the last couple of years. Has anyone had any luck for crappies on Baby/Man?

Just fish the shallow sand after dark with #5 shad raps. They didn't seem to move really shallow until a couple hours after dark.

I have a place on Girl Lake and my brother and I are avid Muskie hunter's.We always try to make time to go to Baby. Last year on Father's day I started off catching a 22" smallie,3 muskie's(biggest 42")along with 16 follows and the last cast of the day(9:15pm) using a sucker colored 12" Suick a 30 1/2" walleye.Well it is that time of year again, and I again will be on Baby. Woman and Girl have been good to me,but Baby just changes things up!

Baby is a heckuva small lake. Last year, Walker DNR Fisheries had one of their highest ever (for that office) walleye gillnet catches on that lake. Throw in the smallmouth and the very abundant musky and you have a heck of a fishery. Walleyes are really cooperative early season. Try in front of the girl scout camp in about 15-20 feet.

Lots of great musky spots. I haven't been on that lake without at least getting a follow. Can you say that about many musky lakes? They aren't the largest sized fish, but they make up for it in numbers.

Good luck on Baby.

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Great video, thanks for sharing, Mitch😉

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.
