Oneida Lake Walleye Trail

4 posts in this topic

There is a walleye tournament coming up this weekend, it's out of the Old Boat House across the street from the walleye hatchery. Here is a link to it. The flier says this Sunday but it's this Saturday because of the New Eastern tournament on Sunday. The best thing about the OLWT tournament is that it's $30 per team and should be a good time with a professional format.

We had a great day on the water, we landed a total of 25 walleyes. My partner and I took second (lost by .45 oz.) with a total weight of 11.45 lbs with a 2.73 lbs big fish (lost big fish by .18 oz.). It was was a great day on the water and secret lure in 10 -13' of water was the ticket. I lost a hog at the boat just as we were netting it that would have easily pushed the tape measure at around 26" and my buddy had one on that we saw good that was just as big, funny how those big pigs always get off. I did find one heck of a school of sunfish and crappies (going back this week to get them), the secret was finding the perch and you knew you were into some walleyes (and LOTS of pickerel). The walleye's in my livewell were spitting up 6" perch. One thing I do need to get and that's an Oxygenator for the livewell, 5 walleye's all over 20" sure do need a lot of fresh water with oxygen. I'll see if I can get some pictures on later.

Nice job Lee! Second is nice but that has to hurt being so close...

Shallow fish feeding on perch - sounds like a swimbait bite. Big plastic, 1/2 oz jighead, and keep her moving... or that "secret"...

      Not sure when they put in the solar grid as I wasn't there last year but it is massive. Must be selling power off of that as I don't think they need that much power there.


      It took a couple days here to run across the article from the Morrison County Record, but here's a little info on the solar panels.


      Completed in October 2016.


      Can generate 10 megawatts.


      Panel field is 63 acres in size.


      $25 million to build.


      The energy will meet or exceed what camp uses.  The project provides a redundant energy supply to their natural gas in case of emergency.


      Minnesota Power stated the solar field is capable of supplying enough energy for 2000 homes for one year.


      Normally the power will go back into the grid and satisfy 1/3 of the requirement for MP&L to generate "GREEN" energy as mandated by the State in 2013.


      One could probably look the article up on the page but those are the high points.

    • Is this what we call an embarrassing win!!?

    • find em and send that eyeguy a note... ;)

      After seeing what my one kids 20ga is capable of I'm really considering going back to one.
