At that time, they will probably be doing all 3. Jigging the reefs should be a good bet. 12 Mile, 2 humps north of 12, 16, Tower, Gull Rock, Little Gull Rock, etc. Some days they like a colored jig and other days they want a plain lindy or maybe even something pulled behind a bottom bouncer. You also see guys pulling riggers with sr-7 rapalas and long lining reef runners. I guess it all depends on what you want to do. I like to fish live bait so I would start jigging/lindying the reefs. If its slow, pull the long lines or the riggers out and cruise the edges in deeper water. Watch your electronics because you should see fish a few feet off the bottom. Adjust the lure running depth accordingly. Good luck.

Perfect advice bapper......almost sounds like Blaine is a suburb of Baudette and you're out everyday.

You know Walleyejon, the 6 hour drive with 2 kids from Blaine kills me but once I get up there, there's no other place I would rather be. Its tough to beat fishing the rocks. I only get up about 7-8 times per year, but you always have the chance to catch that big one.

WJ, I will let you know. I think 7/18-7/22 is the next trip. Maybe we can meet up and find some fish and find some beers.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
