For years and years my dad and I used to go to Canada with a bunch of friends and family to fish for walleye. Since he passed away, I've been trying to find a really good walleye lake and resort in northern Minnesota. I have a new group of guys that go now and the past 2 years we've done Lake Winnie. No luck. Matter of fact, last year we got skunked on walleye there. I went to the Sportsmens Show in St. Paul last weekend and tried to find a new lake and resort. Sooooo many to pick from. So I was wondering if I could get some help from you guys on where is a good place to go fishing for walleye. I was thinking Blackduck or Sand Lake. Any ideas?
mlbudach, Welcome to the site, we hope you stick around a while. There are a few questions I have for you...Do you have your own boat or would you need it supplied? I think it was already asked, how far are you willing to drive from the twin cities? What time of year are you thinking about going? Hopefully someone here will have some good suggestions for you. Welcome!
if it is ice fishing you are looking for lake of the woods is cool i use to go out of wheelers and we had good luck with them and reasonable prices . but i've heard good things about sportsmans and arnesans ( sp ). one time we went by out of zippel in a sleeper and did ok also. ice cracking
upper red lake hands down. One of our houses was up to 38 walleyes last night when I checked in on them. Westwind is the premier resort then you have all of us little guys trying to scratch out a living. We also have trophy pike and tying into a 20 lb is not uncommon.landing a 20 lb pike is another story. We also have monster crappies that are a challenge to find but once you see one come out of a hole you are hooked
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
