Will this be the last week we see the 70’s?
It is looking like we are going to get another beautiful week of weather. Water temperature is down a few more degrees since last week but still a pretty warm 65 degrees.
Walleyes are biting on the reefs near Garden Island and Knight Island lately. 22’-25’ and 28’-32’ of water have been the sweet spots. A mix of bait fishing with bright orange or gold jigs or spinners tipped with a minnow has been working fair. Trolling with red/white or red/silver shad raps has been working the best. Anglers are seeing several 12”-14” fish to throw back, a decent amount of 15“-18” for a fish fry and 4-5 slot fish (19.5”-28”) in a day per boat to throw back as well. It is nice to see so many in the younger class and slot limit walleyes for great future fishing.

Getting some nice sturgeon
A size 5/0 hook, gob of worms anchored in a deep hole around current is a great place to hook a sturgeon. Spring and fall are great times of the year to catch them. Now through Sept 30, you can keep 1 within size limits. Fish must be 45″-50″ inclusive or over 75″. Immediately upon reducing a fish to possession, you must validate and attach your sturgeon tag. Harvested sturgeon must be registered within 48 hours. Oct 1-April 23 is catch and release only.
