The rhythm continues

Less trophies more good eaters lately
In a normal year at this time we are in the thick of trolling and pulling shad raps and reeling in the trophy size fish. This year is different, with the cooler than normal temperatures we have been experiencing, the water temperature continues to stay cool with a surface temperature at a chilly sixty-five degrees, so we have found the most success bait fishing in shallow waters. Bait fishing with spinners has been pulling nice size eating walleyes, fourteen to nineteen inches and slot fish, nineteen and a half to twenty eight inches. Don’t miss out, come wet a line today!

Not too many changes this week from last. The “catching” continues to be above average. Nine to eighteen feet of water is the best depths and a hammered gold spinner tipped with a minnow has been pulling in the walleyes again. The best locations to find your limit is in the sand near Garden Island and Little Oak Island in the northern areas of Big Traverse Bay on Lake of the Woods.
