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.

    • 70 HP Johnson motor.  Older model, but low hours on it.  Starts up fine, but when I go to give it gas the engine bogs down and won't come anywhere near running as fast as it should.  Anyone have any thoughts on the cause?  Wondering if maybe the carbs need to be cleaned.  If so, anyone know how much of a job that is?   Thank you in advance for any feedback.
    • The Warriors won't lose anyone that wants to stay with them since Durant is basically sitting back and saying pay my boys and then we will take care of business.  Hard to lure a free agent from them if their studs take such paycuts...
    • Score!! Nice find.
    • I still don't like the Hanzal/White trade.  I can see a team that is on the edge or coming into the playoffs as a 6,7,8 seed, but at the time, the Wild was 1st in the West and everything was going great.  I really didn't see a reason why they needed to change or bring in other players.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  They could have brought guys up from Iowa down the stretch to spell the vets and give them some motivation.   I'd like to know what Baby Boudreau wants to change or what he would like to see on the team. It would be nice to have somebody that really knows and wants to work the front of the net.  Parise is the closest thing we have to that and that isn't good for his longevity.  Be nice if Coyle embraced a role like that and used his size out front.  
    • Probably because most people wouldn't sell one of these for that much. I'm not sure why they did and well I didn't ask. Maybe they didn't like it as even being a older grill it had hardly been used and looks like new. I already had a Holland Companion grill that works great but this is even better. 
    • Skol!  I'm excited to see how Cooks pans out.  He seems legit so far!  What was the deal with KFAN ditching the rubechat forums?  I know the political page could get a little overheated at times but the others seemed pretty tame.  Too bad! 
    • Wow!! Now THAT's a deal!!!!!!! Why can't I find stuff like that?! 
    • Well not exactly new. Found this at a yard sale for $40.     
    • Havnt seen him for a while and is a lot bigger now.
