Walleye Searchers

A.R.M. (Anglers as Role Models) - 18th Annual Lake Pepin Open

The Walleye Searcher of Minnesota nonprofit fishing club is located in the SE part of the state. Most of our fishing is done on the Mississippi River in Pool 4 between Red Wing and Wabasha. For twenty miles the Mississippi widens to two miles across and forms Lake Pepin. This lake, along with the backwaters above and below it, holds large amounts of walleye and sauger. The backwaters are very scenic and provide numerous sheltered areas to fish in. 

Any walleye over five pounds or sauger over three pounds is considered large in this part of the state. There are times when you and your partner can catch and release 50 walleyes in a day. These hot bites most often occur in cold water. The water below the Red Wing dam never freezes so it is possible to fish out of your boat all year long. In these waters just about any kind of presentation can be used while searching for walleyes.
