Minnesota Walleye Fishing

Some Great Minnesota Walleye Lakes

Lake Winnibigoshish

Lake Winnibigoshish, also known as Winnie, is a firm favorite for walleye. The lake offers numerous reefs and sunken islands, which allow for a live-bait rig (possibly the best presentation for fishing for walleye). The structural elements of Lake Winnibigoshish also provide a great environment for walleyes to feed and hide in the safety of the depths. This does not mean that they cannot be caught, but it does make the catch even sweeter.

Because walleyes in Lake Winnibigoshish can be elusive, many professional anglers use sonar equipment to locate them. Although this equipment is very useful, it is not a necessity and casual anglers can make a catch without any sonar.

Lake of the Woods

Lake of the Woods is located at the northern border of Minnesota and is believed to be one of the largest walleye lakes in the country. The sheer size of the lack can be intimidating for some less experienced anglers, but the truth is that walleye in Lake of the Woods can be, and have been, caught with basic equipment by novice anglers.

The deep parts of this lake can be fished using live-bait rigs, jigs and downriggers. However, if you are fishing on a blustery day, you may find it useful to position yourself in the Rainy River for the optimum walleye catches. Another prime location is between the Rainy River and the basin of the lake in a spot known as The Gap. This spot is highly recommended by professional anglers.

Lake Amelia

Amelia is located in Pope County and is a fabulous lake for walleye. Although, the quantity of the walleye here has decreased in recent years. Nevertheless, there are still some quality fish to be caught. The center of the lake boasts sunken islands, so, many anglers spend their time fishing in these deep waters. Another recommended part of Lake Amelia is the eastern side, which has bulrushes, sand and stone. Some anglers choose to use a slip-bobber here, which can be very fruitful.

Washington Lake

Meeker County boasts Washington Lake, which, although it is not very deep, is home to a good number of walleye. In the center of the lake is a rubble pile, which is a favorite haunt of walleye, but most anglers are aware of this spot. The lakebed also has numerous contours that can contain large numbers of walleye. Sonar equipment can be used, but is not often effective in Washington Lake, and it is often good old-fashioned fishing that produces the best results.

Franklin Lake

Franklin Lake is just one of the great lakes found in Otter Tail County. At nearly 4,000 acres, Franklin is one of the best lakes in the area for walleye. The lake has many structural intricacies, which make it a prime place for walleye to reproduce and flourish.

You may find it useful to fish at the north end of Franklin Lake, and the east side is believed to be a productive spot too. Because, it is a large body of water it can cope with a large amount of boat traffic, anglers may find it useful to explore this beautiful lake for optimum walleye locations.
