Fishing is on fire!!
Beep, beep, beep, beep…..yes that is the sound I hear when I know fishing is on fire! That’s the sound of text message after text message of pics sending to my phone from the guides out on the water yesterday. Great fishing and beautiful weather!

The summer bite is in full swing! Check out the pictures of the week.

Reeling them in….
Anchored and jigging with a jig and a minnow as well as drifting with spinners tipped with a minnow, leech or crawler are all great choices this week. Water temperature has jumped up a few more degrees this week, currently at 67 degrees.  Sandbars and some rock piles have been hot spots. Gold, orange and pink jigs and spinners have been working well in 17’-26’ of water. Lots of slot sized walleyes (19.5-28 inch) as well as plenty for the frying pan are flipping in the boats. Good action! That is the sign of a great summer of fishing ahead of us!

Fish, Eat & Be Merry
Enjoy a meal of your fresh catch during a midday shore lunch is a must!
