Any of you folks ever fish these lakes? If so, what are the main methods to catch walleye; crappie or perch in early June?

TIA Jak

I will be fishing on 8th, 9th and 10th Crow Wing lakes during the week of 24 - 30 June. B-in-law owns a cabin on 8th. I am not trying to steal your secrets but want to avoid buying lures, rigs etc. that don't work here.

I would be most interested in Walleye; Crappie; Blue Gill and Yellow Perch.

Fishing, as it pertains to each individual lake, whereever it is located, is a strange game. I haven't really found any one lure or method that works universally on even a small majority of lakes. Seems each lake has its own quirks. Leeches here, nightcrawlers there and crank baits over in this region. Jigs are pretty universal but then the color scheme comes into play.

TIA for any help you can offer.

Thanks for the info. I gather from your comments 8 - 10 Crow Wing Lakes are not exactly "prime" fishing areas so I will proceed with realistic expectations.

There all great fishing lakes I like 8th the best it has a lot of big Walleye's, Bass and some panfish.

I would get a map the grass island in the middle of the lake holds lots of fish but there are many good places to fish, I'm thinkg leeches this time of year will work for you.

Good Luck and let us know how you did.

Will certainly let you all know how I fared. I feel I am at a huge disadvantage in that I haven't fished much at all for a number of years. Between work and my kids' sports schedules, there just was no open season. My bad I guess. I did fish 8th Crow Wing with my sister back in May of 1995 when my Dad's operation was cancelled at the Mayo Clinic. We caught a few panfish but that was all.

I am optomistic. Heck, when staying at a cabin named "The Looney Bin", ya can't go wrong.

I would go with a red #6 plain hook tipped with a medium leech, you could do a lindy rig setup with a slip sinker or a spilt shot sinker.
A bobber and leech would work also 6" to foot off the bottom.

the old jig and minnow work well on all species on the chain of lakes.
i have a place on the first crow wing lake.
the eight lake is one of the better lakes on the chain.the red eyed
wigglers works good on the weed edges for pike. good luck.
