Still Trolling!

Trolling or drifting with spinners tipped with leeches or crawlers in 16-19 feet of water has proven hot this week! Colors that work well include pink/gold, green/gold and orange/gold. The surface water temp continues to hover around 70 degrees. Many fish between 15” – 17” have been caught along with some big trophy walleyes! Pro

Tip of the week – secure your footing before netting a fish!

Fall is around the Corner

The air is starting to cool down especially in the mornings and evenings. The best walleye bite has been in a combination of shallow depths, 16’-21’ areas and deeper 25’-30’ in the mud and around reefs. Orange and gold spinners or jigs have been working well using crawlers or minnows. The guides have been finding lots of nice fish.  Water temp has cooled off to the lower 70’s.

Muskies have been biting in the bays using top water baits. Good luck fishing!
