Pipestone Lake Walleye Fishing

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
    • P. S. Seasoning has a Memorial Say sale of 20% off everything plus free shipping on orders over $30.
    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
