The weather has begun to become normal again after the last few weeks and the fish are getting hungry again! The may fly hatch is in full swing but it hasn’t seemed to slow the walleyes down. A good jig bite has continued into July. 31’ seems to be the magic number out in the mud. Pink has been by far the best color. Tipping your jig with a shiner will produce but try tipping with a leech if the bite slows.


The spinner bite continues to produce great numbers of walleyes. 7’-14’ has been the best depths. A hammered gold spinner with a crawler has far outdone any other color or bait as of late!

A great trolling bite is beginning to show itself as well. In the mornings and evenings up shallows has good numbers of active walleyes. 6’-12’ with crankbaits, trolling anywhere from 2.2 mph to 3.5 mph. During the day, 30’-32’ is holding great numbers of walleyes. Cover water and you should run into some good fish!
