Now that the wind has died down we can get back to nailing them on Gull. This weekend should be great. There is a nice year class of walleyes in that 12-16 inch range and they are hungry. Minnows are the ticket. Redtail chubs or nice rainbows have both worked well over the last 2 weeks on a lindy rig or jighead. It doesn't get much easier. Just hop from spot to spot until you find them. They have been located on weedlines in 13-20 feet of water. The north 2/3 of the lake has been best. Have a safe weekend everyone and good luck out there.

Another great morning out there. Nothing big but quite a few 15-18 inch fish. Seemed like the fish have slid out a little deeper. Caught all of my fish in 16-22 feet. Minnows are working well. They were inhaling them.

71 degrees this evening. Caught one walleye while bassin in a tourney tonight in 10 Fow. Bass were biting good in 6-10 fow on jigs, jigworms and a few came on cranks.

I thought for sure this change in the weather would turn them off. Good to hear theyre still biting.

And with the colder weather it should keep the recreational traffic down a bit. I can hope, right?

Yesterday morning I had 71 degrees on the main lake. Like Traxx said, I think the bass have moved up a little. Not catching too many on the outside weed edges. It was a little too breezy to hit the water this a.m. It is still a little tough to keep minnows alive. I suggest an aerated bait bucket or a recirculating livewell/baitwell and some ice cubes. It really seams to make a difference.

Time to pull out the Arctic Armour and hit the water tomorrow a.m. Jason at 41 degrees for a low tomorrow a.m. I don't know if we will need to ice down our redtails tomorrow morning. Have a great weekend everybody and be safe.

Happy to hear that Shortdude. That is awesome. Every now and then I get lucky and it sounds like I know what I'm talking about.

The last few nights have really helped to cool things down. Keeping minnows is getting a little easier. The solid reports keep coming in. Time to get out there and enjoy it.

A few of the better spots lately have been on the west shore from Quarterdeck to Snady point, Cinosam/Stone Boathouse, the Rock Pile, Dutchman's Bluff, among others. Like John said, rigs or jigs are both working. I've found that if you hop around you'll find some. Good luck.

i know this summer has been a bit different and slower for some than the last couple years, but can we still expect a good fall bite this year? i remember the last couple years having some awesome days in sep. and oct. out there and i hope it is the same this year.

Little slow on Saturday for me. Still fun to be out, marked quite a few fish though, just a little slow on the biters. Was on Gull in 12 to 22 ft of water.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.
    • MikeG3Boat
      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.
    • MikeG3Boat
      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.
    • Shulsebus
      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      Those are some fine specimens. Great job
    • gimruis
      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
