Walleye fishing. This is the main reason so many of our guests return to us each season. Our lakes are the perfect environment for growing trophy fish! Deep water with much structure and countless weed beds and a fantastic unharmed gene pool. The essential ingredients needed for world class walleye fishing. Our guests catch countless walleyes up to 30 inches. 25 to 28 inch walleyes are quite common. If you want to catch 100 walleye in a day, you can do that too! Catching walleyes does take some knack and skill though. If you don’t have much experience fishing walleye, you should not expect to catch 100 fish in a day but you should catch more each day you are at an outpost. Here are a few simple tips to help you catch as many as possible. Most importantly bring a depth finder. Generally once you find the depth the fish are hanging out in, the rest is easy. If you are going to spend the money to go on a great fishing trip with us, please go buy a portable depth finder to bring along. You will be thankful for it. Also, fish the windy shore. That is where the bait fish are and the walleyes will be close to them. Make sure that you are fishing near or on the bottom. If you are getting snagged, you are in the right spot although I tend to favor spots where you don’t snagged as often. Bait and lures vary a lot but the simplest lures are usually the best. Jigs and tails or Lindy rigs are the old standby lures for walleye and will not let you down. You will most likely catch your biggest Pike of the trip while fishing for walleye! And lastly, BAIT. Bait is not necessary but if you have some frozen minnows, leeches or crawlers along, you will catch more fish. When you are hammering the fish one after another there is no time for bait but it will help at times during your trip.
