Pipestone Lake Walleye Fishing

12 posts in this topic

The walleye bite on Pipestone Lake is very good right now. The walleyes are on the reefs in good numbers. Most the walleyes caught were in 14-18 fow and a lindy rig and leech was the best. Guests the last few weeks were having good success with cranks as well. Had 2 muskies follow up today, 1 in the 45" class and a 35". Here's a picture of a fat 29" caught today.

Hey Piston Ring,

Who's boat are you in? I see a yammy on the back and I know you wouldn't be caught driving without a Honda on the back of the boat. Was that guy cutoff in the picture guiding you in his boat?

Superbee, nice fish!

Pipestone sure is a great lake, there are some dandy walleyes in there but you don't hear much about them because the fishing for everything else is so good. Seems like every trip we get one between 27 and 29 inches. Can't wait to head up there in almost exactly a month. I'll see you then! Glad to hear some muskies are showing themselves too, I'm still planning on catching one bigger than yours!

Outfitter - you are right about running the Yamaha vs the Honda. It was tough to adjust to it, but went up with the neighbor in his boat to do a little work and get some fishing with the nice weather we have been having.

Fishguide1 - It was great to have you up and am glad you and your son had a really good trip. We look forward to seeing you up again in the future. Let me know if you decide to do the ice fishing trip and we will get you on the lakers.

Hoffer - There are some great fish to be had on Pipestone. Alot less developement on Pipestone vs Jackfish/Despair which is always a plus. There is even less traffic up there from years back when there was 3 lodges on the lake and now there is only one. Let me know if you want to try and set something up. Would like to have you see what the lake has to offer.

NoWiser - Your trip is coming up fast. Don't forget the sweetcorn when you come up and I will pass you along a new spot or 2 that have been holding some good fish. See you soon.

The group that came out of the outpost on Pipestone today reported excellent walleye fishing, catching lots of walleye ranging anywhere from 8" up to 22". Lots of fish caught in the area around the cabin, the bay where Happy Landing Lodge was, and the NW Arm. Most walleyes were caught using leeches. Caught 2 muskies, one about 35" and 42". Had lots of follows, around 25 different fish total.

She was smiling when she caught them, but was not happy that it was time to leave.

The wife and a friend took the boys up and got into the walleyes. Largest of their 2 days was 24". Had 3 muskies follow up, with largest in the 40+" range. Leeches on lindy rigs in 18-22 fow.

    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
    •   Have you tried to get it out in the water and running it at higher speeds for a while to see if it will clear it's self?
    • Trying to get some idea as to how much I will need to spend to get my 1997 Yamaha 30 hp running again.  The motor sat for nearly 11/2 yrs after I had bought it. before I got around to starting it in Oct.  I followed the owner's manual recommendation to use pre-mix 50:1 gas oil, even though it has oil injection.  Anyway, motor would start(Elec. start), not real quickly, but after starting, would begin to cough and then choke out after a few seconds.This happened repeatedly despite different choke settings, etc.until I finally thought it better to quit fooling with it.  Called a repair place in my hometown outside the metro and he wanted to wait till Spring to look at it.  Said it probably needs new carb kits or carbs and plugs.  Also want him to put in new impeller and lower unit seals. Just wondering what an ave. fair price would be to have that done, provided there isn't anything else wrong?  I live in SW Metro area, but really don't know where to take it around here that I trust anymore. any ideas, help would be greatly appreciated.  Repairman didn't want to give est. without looking at it.  Can't blame him, but don't want to get totally ripped off either.
    •   Actually, I have a case of 17 Beers left that I bought to the GTG last weekend still. Someone drank one! Since I'm not a big Beer guy I have been going over all the things I can make with beer. Beer Cheese soup, beard, fish batter, boil some wild rice venny brats in beer? Or just give it to one of my buddies?
    • Actually no one from either side, none, notta, zip.  
    • Large segments of the right and left are probably wishing they teamed up for Johnson right about now, they might not admit it but if they could go back and change their vote I wonder how many would. One thing is perfectly clear and that is neither Trump or Hillary was the answer. However they more than likely speed up the process of dumping the two party system so it's all good.
    •   If there is no easy money to be made the bad guys will do something else, you won't eliminate them completely unless you legalize everything but maybe they move on to something else. Take away that money and you solve a lot of problems at once for a lot of people. Not much incentive for people to sell hooch these days and it is as simple as that.

      I don't think you realize how bad the war on drugs is, we are talking world wide impact here. Heck in Mexico alone how many people are the cartels killing, it is a blood bath down there. Remove the millions that they make and that motivation is gone. How many police had been killed in drug related incidents in the past 50 years? The overdose deaths and accidents are going to happen no matter what you do, there is no stopping those but maybe you can prevent them with better treatment programs. You also have a massive prison population with large numbers of them incarcerated for drug crimes, now I'm now about letting violent offenders free but the rest of them are worth a look on a case by case bassi. Then you look at all of the above and all how all of their families have been affected by it. If you want to start helping people you need to start by ending the war.
    • Wow! That's pretty low. You should be ashamed!
