Two Sides, One Goal…

Fishing on the Minnesota side has been tricky.  The walleye bite has been finicky as they have been marking the fish but the fish have not been biting.  However, Little Oak and Four Blocks have been producing in about the 22’-30’ range so set your sights (and your GPS) that direction.  Gold or chartreuse jigs or hammered gold spinners tipped with a minnow can get the job done for you.  You will find that the walleye bite is still strong on the Canadian side.  In the evenings, head to the shoreline and the weed beds and you will find that the muskie bite is strong.  Pink cowgirls have been working well but the smaller lures are getting them to bite just as much.  The rash of fish flies seems to be ending just as the algae bloom is greening up the water.  However, the weather looks warm and sunny so that should brighten things up as well.

The boat launch at Young’s Bay is open. The water is high at the lodge but boat docking is available and we continue to make changes to keep the service available and safe.
