Was up over the last week staying at Spring Bay Resort. Caught between 40-50 Walleyes. They were setting up in the deeper holes taking minnows on jigs. Size of minnows didn't seem to matter. Also seemed to do better in the morning than in the evening.

I also picked up a 38 inch northern on a white bucktail.

Thanks to Doug and Lisa for a great time.

How deep was deep? What size, color, and type of jig (Bucktail or plastic)? Any specific locations that you were fishing? Thanks for any info!

Most fish were caught in around 24-26 feet near deeper water. I was using a normal chartruese jig. Not sure if color mattered since I didn't try any other colors. We did well off of Hibbing point. My father in law and I caught a dozen there on Thursday morning in about 45 minutes. Then they shut off like someone flipped a switch.

Walter,

It was great to have you and Leslie and Sophie again. I always enjoy fishing with you. It was a good week, as the fish were on pretty good. I think it is just going to be a matter of you leaving all your walleye gear at home, and only bring the muskie tackle. But then I would just wind up giving you one of my walleye rods and we would be stuck again fishing eyes', and letting the big girls alone. Thanks again ---- look forward to fishing again with you next June and October.

Doug

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
