Esser Lake Fly-in Outpost Camp:
Walleye: This is a magnificent Walleye Lake. Esser Lake is a widening of the famous Ogoki River. As you can see on the map, when the water is low you can see sand bars represented as brown marks. In the spring these sand bars are under water and are a major area for Walleye spawning. Not only do great populations of Walleyes migrate to this area in the spring to spawn, the big trophy females take advantage of the depth (20 feet max) and stay there all summer.
There are Walleyes everywhere. River current, weed beds, rocky points and spots around the islands are all holding high populations of Walleyes. How hard you fish and how much time you spend fishing in a day will determine if you reach that magic 100-walleyes-in-a-day mark, which is very possible. You will catch tons of walleyes in the 1 to 3-pound range. This lake is known more for size than numbers. There are lots of Walleyes in the 5 to 10-pound range in this lake.
