Walleyes are active this week! Anglers have been finding a good bite in 22’-26’ of water and 15’-18’ around points. Soldier’s Point, Massacre Island, points around Falcon Island and Little Oak Island has been good. Average size has been 16”-17” in length. Gold jigs tipped with a minnow are working best! Water temperature is 51 degrees.
Crappie bite has been best around structure and points of 20’ and 30’-40’ in depth. The cooler it gets the better the bite should get. Average size has been between 12”-16”. Pink and gold jigs tipped with a minnow have been working well. Looking for a hot bite? We suggest taking a guide, they know just where to find them!.
Muskie & Northern Pike
Trolling is picking up. Still getting a few fish casting but trolling has been best. Average size has been 32”. Points and gaps with current have been good spots to find them. Trolling with 8”-14” plugs is the best approach.
