Summer rolls on and so does the great fishing! Walleyes have been aggressive and hungry, being caught using several different methods. The jig bite continues to be consistent but you have to look deeper. 27’-30’ has been the best depth, but the fish should continue to push deeper. Don’t be afraid to get out to 31’-32’ this week! Gold and pink with a frozen shiner seems to produce the most bites.
The mid-June spinner is on too! No need to go out and get an assortment of different colored spinners though, hammered gold is all you will need! The best depths have been 10’-14’, but fish are caught as shallow as 7’ and as deep as 20’ depending on the day. Drifting at 1 mph has been the magic speed as of late, but if you marking fish but they refuse to bite, slow down! Just enough to keep that spinner moving! As far as bait, an even mix of crawlers and leeches.
Captain Matt and Captain Bob had a crazy few days of fishing with the Lindsay group! Awesome fish!!
Captain Travis Campbell and the Hien group slaughtered the walleyes jigging this week and even a bonus sturgeon!
But live bait isn’t your cup of tea, get on the troll! Just off of Pine Island and up the shore to Long Point has been kicking out good numbers of shallow water walleyes! Trolling crankbaits in 6’-10’ has produced very well! This bite is better in the morning and late evening but can be very good!
