Good question! Cold front after cold front has been rolling through, and the water levels are pretty high.

I probably start with a lindy rig with leeches or crawlers and see where that leads.

Look deeper durning the day in that 30 ft range and that 22 ft range toward evening trolling along some breaks and humps, they are there, these cold fronts haven't hurt the fishing much.

June when I fish in the day I usually use a blown up night crawler on a Lindy in 18-22ft and bring home the limit move from structure yo structure dont waste time if your not catching keep moving till you find the active ones. Ive done this with 3 guys in the boat and when we hit that active spot we fill out in a hour.

      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.
