The walleye bite has been very good all week.

Any type of presentation has been getting fish!

I have been fishing jigs/minnows or Lindy Rigs with minnows or crawlers in water that is 12' to 42' deep.

Slow and easy is working best for me.

fished niles bay, wolf bay and frazer bay on tuesday. frazer bay was most productive, fishing 30fow with 1/8 oz. jig. fish bit on minnows, crawlers and leeches but it was a light bite so more fish were hooked using half a crawler. didn't have any luck under 20fow anywhere. be back saturday am weather permitting.

I know this on the other end of the lake, but we were doing pretty darn good by Mud Creek Bay area in 20 to 33 FOW with leeches on spinner rigs(day time) and 7 to 9 FOW with slip bobbers and leeches(early morning and evenings). We didn't get around to trying worms, and minnows didn't do anything for us.

I was up on the big V from June 9th thru the 15th. The fishing was great! Slowly trolled lindy's the whole time with size 8 and 6 red and Flo. Orange hooks on 2 to 3 foot snells. The speed was best between 0.4 and 0.8 mph. We caught enough unders to send limits home with 7 people and about 10 to 15 slot fish. One nice pike, five smallies and many nice bonus Jumbo Perch. We fished from 10 to 19 feet the entire time. Mostly in the middle of the lake by Gold Island, Muskrat Channel and Grassy Point. It was a great time had by all. We will be back next year a little earlier. The group we were with also spent some time fishing for sunnies and were rewarded with plenty of nice sized fish. The biggest walleye was 23 inches and the biggest under was 16 3/4's. The bulk of the fish caught were 13.5 to 15 inches. They were all nice healthy looking fish. I can't wait to find them next year! I forgot to add it was all leeches and nightcrawlers but the crawler seemed to have the edge and we only used half crawlers and they did just fine.

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.
