  • Im fishing a lake just over 40 acres that is a bwca entry point. it is football shaped with no dropoffs. it has one "point" even

    Im fishing a lake just over 40 acres that is a bwca entry point. it is football shaped with no dropoffs. it has one "point" even though it is not very sharp and it is only a few feet deep around it. it gets to be about 15 feet deep but the last 4-5 feet are submerged vegetation. there are a few small rock piles jn less than 5 feet of water. its an 80 rod portadge in so we fish from kayaks. what would be the ideal strategy for walleye and perch?

    The walleye will move locations depending on weather and time of year. I would concentrate on the deeper water near ledges. Also, 15 feet seems a bit shallow for a good walleye lake.

      I agree with buckhunter, to find out what is in there you can't beat a worm.

        Not big enough acreage for either species to grow to decent size.

          Jhjimbo....Yes you can for either of those species. MINNOWS!

              Dangle, I believe the BWCA has restrictions on minnows. Leeches on the other hand...

                Buck...I watch lots of those cable fishing shows, and don't fish those fisheries anymore that are not fly fishing shows. Have you seen the latex minnow imitations, and their action in the water? Wow have they got those rubber baits down!! And have you heard of WHITE PERCH in Lake Erie? Lots of them, and I do believe they are evasive. Wonder how they taste?

                  Set up a slip bobber rig and try either worms, minnows, or leeches. It works like a charm

                    you can use a spoon or shiner if the fishh are in beding or acting aggressive.

                      I fish the same kind of lakes around my area in Minnesota and consistently pull out 15-20 inchers with a few 6-10 pound walleyes on a real good day. If you are fishing from a kayak I would fish the weed lines with a slip-bobber and leach (in summer) or with a minnow (spring and fall). This strategy also works on rock piles. Late fall try from shore with a lindy-rig. Use a walking sinker behind a swivel and 1.5 ft - 2 ft of line and a # 6 hook with a small sucker. Leave the bail open on your rod and tie a marker on your line (I often use a small piece of foam). The walleye will suck it off the bottom and you will see that marker start to take of.
