My girlfriend is living in saskatoon for school right now, and I plan to go out and see her mid to late october, last time i was there I bought a small ugly stick spinning combo just to kill time while she was in school. I fished the river with nothin but snags, and then went to lake blackstrap(i think) and caught 1 walleye, and 1 pike using jig heads with those rubber tails on them. Just curious if anyone has any suggestions for other lures/bait to use, or places to fish near saskatoon. I saw the crankbaits, but didnt know if it was worth close to 10 bucks a lure(definitly not in the river, snag city). Thanks.

hey steve-o when i lived in ontario and fished for walleye we used to use a jug head tipped wiht a live minnow for pike i would try a big red deveil spoon thats what i used to use in the ottawa river from shor fishing for pike also if you get lucky enough try some top water nothing like a pike smashing a top water bait also crank baits work awesome if you can get to walmart in bellinham before you go they ahve cheap crankbaits there

Is the any particular color crankbait to look for, and does it say top-water on it, and are certain brands better? And to fish with em is it just cast and retrieve. Also if I have my way I will go to lake rather than river I didnt see many people fishin the river, crankbaits would be good there too?

Steve-O PM japander. He is a stubble-jumper who had the good sense to move hear, but he still goes back there lots and fishes Saskatchewan regularly. If I had known about this thread earlier I could have asked the half dozen or so 'Riders fans who were seat nearby witnessing their green and white getting their ***** handed to them at the dome last night. :thumbup: :thumbup: :drunk:

Hey Noxcape, I was gonna be goin to Bellis Fair sometime this week anyways, so if I stop in at Joes and buy some crankbaits, should I just focus on top-water ones or others as well...also not knowing about the lake/river at all what are some safe colors to go for. Also anything else you would recommend trying out while I am down there? I won't blame you if they dont work :thumbup:

you have to check out this little lake near a town called craik (not sure of spelling)...think its called arm lake but not sure it has a little campsite 400m away from the lake and its the best fishing for walleye you will ever see

weve caught fish all over it but if you boat down the lake from the boat launch eventually there will be a wed bed on the right hand side fish there

another spot only about 100m away from the boat launch (up the lake) and about 30 feet offshore there is a rock pile under water..it takes a bit of searching to find this pile but once you do its nonstop fish :thumbup:
try any jighead with a strip of beefhart cut real skinny and just jig it off the bottom...youll definitely catch fish cheers :cheers:

Hi Steve-0

I am a stubble jumper from way back and go back each summer to kill lots of Walleye, jack (slime snakes), perch and goldeye.

An excellent lure for shore fishing is the "walleye jugs", with 2 or 3 frozen minnows attached with a small weight. If you have macurocrome use it and they all go for it. Or ..... use leaches or earthworms.

I used to use a jig head that was orange with black stripes with a bright green plastic tail , attached to the single hook at frozen minnow, if you can still find the jig head its a walleye buster forsure.

I would stay away from the spinners and crankbaits .... they are just money grabbers (sorry to all who believe in them but being a sask boy I just don't believe in them unless I am fishing from a boat ).

Also those jacks (pike, slime snakes) love red and white spoons, yellow and black diamond back spoons, black and white spoons and green and white spoons. fish the weed likes because they hide in the weeds and watch for fish moving along the clearing.

I lived in Sask for 25 yrs and never seen a fly rod until I moved to BC ............ so ????

Fish early in he am or just before sunset, fishing in the day wont be productive and in my view a wast of time .... better to go watch the Riders kick the Lions butts LOL

if this helps at all in the columbia for walleye i use a jighead with the berkley gulp minnows easier then the real stuff same results in watermelon pearl or black shad works but like mentioned before get a colour of the natural fish greens and yellows work good also the berkley alive leeches work awesome and i usually add a piece of worm in addition to the minnows or leeches for that extra scent good luck up in saskatchewan.
