High winds and rain have rolled over the northland this week. Subsequently the water temps have continued to fall, going all the way from the mid-60s to the upper 50s and the fish are feeling it. The jig bite has turned on in a big way. Walleyes are moving into the gap. Depending on the day, a solid jig bite can be found anywhere from 23’-32’. Gold, orange, chartreuse, and pink have all been doing very well. Shiners are the preferred jigging bait per usual this time of year! Even the river has been starting to catch fire. Fish in four mile bay and the rainy river have been being caught. More in the morning and evenings than the middle of the day but it is a sign of good things to come, very soon.
Spinners are still going good as well. Hammered gold spinners with a crawler will be your best bet. You can catch them out deep this way but your best luck will be in shallow. 8’-12’ and stay moving. Just because the water is cooling doesn’t mean the walleyes won’t still chase.
