Looking for some good walleye lakes

Recommended Posts

Guest

Does anyone know of a decent lake to fish walleye in Carver, Mcleod, Wright,or Meeker, counties. I moved down to Carver area and miss fishing Mille Lacs 3-5 times a week. I tried Waconia but boat traffic was real busy that day. Just got alittle snake and a few perch. Would appreiciate it!

Check out the Hutchinson Area forum

I had the best fishing on Washington two weekends ago. Most fish I have caught there in 10+years!

Hello Wallywoman,

In my opinion...Clearwater in Annandale stands head and shoulders above all other local walleye haunts. I primarily fish Mille Lacs, but when I am not there I am at Clearwater. Work the weedlines of sunken mid-lake humps in 11 to 15'. One thing about this lake, there is tremendous structure, and you should be somewhat careful running your boat the first few times you are out. You can easily ding your prop if you are not careful.

Clearwater is very good. Just be very careful(as a person alway should be)about getting all the weeds off of your boat and trailer. It is one of the lakes with eurasion milfoil in it. Also try Pulagski, Buffalo(near the city of Buffalo). Silvia/Twin(SW of Annandale) are another 10-15 West of Clearwater but they can be real good as well.

Cedar can be good, especially earlier in the summer(Located between Montello and Maple Lake).

There are lots of good walleye lakes out there. Make sure to check them out on the MN DNR site using the lakefinder link. It will have maps and survey data for most of the lakes.

Good Luck!

wallywoman I have lived on waconia for 24 years and fish it very very often. I do quite well on the lake. I would gladly take you out and show you a few spots on waconia if you so wish. once you know what to look for then the lake is actually pretty easy. It is all about the spot on the spot. my email is [email protected] email me if you are interested in hitting the lake. I have a tournament this weekend so I will be leaving tomorrow but anytime next week I would be more than happy to show ya a few spots.

Weekend before tried Crow river there in Hutch @ the park, got a few walleye eaters, a cat,& lots of bullheads,small lg mouth & not to mention a couple 10+ lb carp.Thanks for the info though We're gonna give Wasington a try this weekend hopefully You wouldnt happen to give out some good spots or GPS coordinates would you? smile.gif That lake looked a bit larger than the Stella side.

I don't have any GPS points for you but if you go straight out from the landing, put yourself out in front of the yellow A-frame looking house start in 6-8 ft deep, it should drop to 10-14, then come back up to 5-6 on top of the rock piles, you'll have to work through some weeds as you drift or troll across the two rock piles, there should be boats out there so it shouldn't be hard to locate. The ticket with Washington and Stella is to not fish it at traditional times. We had our best luck from 9:30am-2:30pm. No reason to stay past dark or even dusk for that matter.

The walleyes should hit hard, any tapping on the line is perch or bullheads, leeches help keep them off a little bit. Use metallic spinners on your lindy's.

Good Luck let me know how you do.

Fathead,..can you help me out on Clearwater walleyes? I tried yesterday but with no luck.

Is there much of a daytime bite, or should I be focusing on morning and night strictly?

    • All deer in SE MN need to be wiped out.  90% herd reduction isn't going to stop the disease.  It is wreckless and stupid to do any less.  The whole state herd is going to go in the toilet if the SE guys don't get on the triggers and get their situation under control.  This talk of us vs the deer farms is a stupid smokescreen designed to try to take the focus off private land owners that don't want to cooperate with the mitigation plan.       Anything less will set the stage for CWD to roll hard to the north and get into the big woods where there will be zero chance of ever finding every deer.   
    • Gettin er done.    I have to take the "T" that the transducer pipe goes through to work so I can open the ID so the pipe can slide freely. 
    • I have a couple Garmin units for my boat. I'm going to also use one for ice fishing. Got it powered up and started playing with the colors schemes I'd like to use. The only one I like so far is with a blue background. But what I found that I like better is the black background the humminbird uses. Maybe Garmin could do an update to add a black mode. Lol. 
    • How do you keep those solid whole covers from freezing over the hole?
    • The ant moat idea seems interesting.  Go to a second had store or a Goodwill type of place and see if you can find a Bundt pan.  Use that and see how things work out.  
    • Could you be a little more specific on this cocktail timing deal? Size matters! 😏  
    • I have been doing whole prime rib on a weber grill since I was 20 years old and they cost 2.99 lb at the long ago defunct Country Club Market in St. Paul. I put the coals on each side for indirect heat and add salt and pepper and garlic. For the garlic I put the fat side up and take a knife and put holes into the fat down to meat. In each hole I put a garlic clove. I don't add any pellets or wood chips for smoke. I just want to taste that beef cooked in owns fat with a few spices but go ahead and add some smoke to it if that is what you want.
    • The storm last weekend  has moved the birds into the heavy duty winter cover. We had pretty good hunting in the cattails the last couple of days. Perfect weather helped.
    • In my humblest of opinions the simpler the better for prime rib.   Take it out of the refrigerator, salt (kosher) the entire piece and let stand until it's at room temp. Stick it into your smoker/oven at 450-500 degrees until crusted (about 1 cocktail). Lower heat to 325. Have a least 3 cocktails before poking it with a thermometer. Remove once internal temp is 120. Let rest for at least 1 more cocktail Cut and serve with horseradish.
    • In the worst case, the population would have to be held at a low level for a few years, like maybe 5.      I still haven't seen much indication that prions in the dirt are an issue in actuality (as opposed to theoretically).
