Hello All ,
This is my first post on this forum.
I'm looking forward to my first fishing trip to Minnesota in late
august. I've heard so much about Minnesota fishing.
My question is , If you were to bring a small tackle box , what
kind of artificial lures would be in it for Walleye , Pike and Bass?
Catch and release,of course.
I'm looking forward to learning from Minnesota Fisherman .
Thank You .

If you want to go only artificial there are severl options.

What does your budget allow?

For walleye you could go with a variety of plastic bait.

Late summer is usually when leeches are most productive so you may want to look at the Gulp leeches. If you pick up some spinner rigs for trolling you could use the Gulp leeches and you'd be giving yourself a good shot at some fish. You could also use your standard lead jigs and tip them with the Gulp Leeches as well, as long as you supply it with movement. there are also plenty of minnow or swim baits available that may work.

The other more expensive option is crankbaits. You could pick up a variety of them and troll them. It takes some know how to know how deep each bait will run and they aren't cheap baits so I would not recommend going that route if you're only going to be using them once.

For bass and pike I would go with spinner baits, they'll catch either one so you won't need to buy seperate lures for each species.

Welcome to My Fishing Pals cessna, I can't help much with the bass or northerns but at that time of year for walleyes bottom bouncer weights with spinner/crawler harnesses work real well while drifting or slow trolling.If you wanted to try a little side adventure a trip north about 4 hours from osakis will put you on some excellent fishing on Lake of the Woods.There are people on this site that could help you out there.Good Luck!
