Sportsman’s Lodge South End Fishing Report
Guides are still having success with hammered gold with pink/orange spinners, tipped with minnows, crawlers and leeches. Drifting with spinners on breezy days and trolling with spinners on calm days in 14’-22’ of water in the sand or mud has been bringing in the 14”-19.5” walleyes. The water temp is hovering around the 70 degree mark this week. Pro tip of the week – troll between 1 – 1.5 mph. Anything faster and you will tangle your spinner!

Spinners and Crank Baits
If you have been jigging and not having luck, time to switch over to spinners and crank baits for awhile. Gold and pink spinners tipped with a minnow or worms have been working well as well as crankbaits.
Drifting or a slow troll has been the ticket on rock reefs in 20’-24’. Water temp is in the mid 70’s. Itching to go fishing? We still have some dates available through the soft water season. We are opne through mid October. Give us a jingle!
It has been an active bite. Rocky points and weedy points using top water baits have been pulling in some nice 45”+ fish. Late summer through fall is a great time of year to reel in these monsters.
Fall is just around the corner.
Come relax and reel in some fun!
