My son, and I made our annual trip to LOW on Sunday June 10, thru Friday June 15th, staying at a resort on Sabaskong Bay. Our primary mission was casting for Northerns as the boy gets a little bored with the pace of Walleye fishing, and the impending mayfly hatch forced us into using different tactics.

Anyway, we did catch a few walleyes here and there trolling with a "frenzy" type crankbait at around 2.5 mph in 15-18 fow. Other methods included the traditional jig, and minnow near rocks in 20 fow, or a gold/bronze spinner with minnow combo slow drifted over flats.

We had a great time with the Northerns. We launched everything we had at them: various colored spinnerbaits, spoons, large, and small crankbaits, and they hammered #5 mepps with copper/gold/bronze spinners with yellow bucktail/maribou. The key appeared to be the spinner color i.e. copper/gold/bronze. They were still in the weedy bays that had cabbage 1-2' below the surface. The largest that I caught was 33", and my son, he's 15, a 29". We each had 2-3 musky follows, but no takers.

If you travel into the Stony Portage Bay portion of Sabaskong watch out for submerged rocks, and rock humps as that is why it is named "Stony Bay"!

Good luck, and have a great time!!!!
