been fishing the depths mentioned - 12-20ish.  Only one eye Sunday-Tuesday.  Haven’t seen hardly any caught. No shortage of 22-24” pike.  Been on upper, lower, rush and cross.  If anyone wants to share a nugget of info, it’d be much appreciated.

We caught a couple 16”, a 17”, a couple 18”, and a 19” and change. Jig and minnow was still best for us. My wife pulled a spinner but caught mostly pike.  Biggest pike was 26”. Good luck to everyone!

Sorry for the late reply. I  fished July 3 and 4 and caught a 14, 19, 21, and 27. Weather was too nice to fish, but still went out (clear skies and calm). Better for swimming and boating. Fish were caught in different locations in Middle and Upper and before 8 AM. Water still seemed cool. Few weeds up yet. Should be better now and forward with all the heat recently.

I fished on Cross for a couple hours on Sat morning (6-8am) and caught two 14" eye and a couple pike. One eye was on a jig/leech and the other on a silver Flickr Shad. 17ft. The sunfish were relentless on plucking leeches off my jig if I wasn't moving fast enough or got up into the weeds a bit. Nice morning to be out, but the lack of breeze and full sun it was hot by 8:30.

My father in-law and I got out Saturday from  9-11:30am and 8-10:30pm trying a few new spots.  We found crazy amounts of perch and sunnies with a few pike mixed along the weed edges.  Once again the eyes eluded us but was nice to be on the water

Headed up Sunday for ten days.  See water is in high 70'S ,  pretty warm.   Did see a pic. on Heaths resort website of a nice catch of walleyes. Hopefully with the screwy  spring this may be the summer peak.  Daughter was up last weekend and she said bass were going crazy in the morning before it got hot.  May try some spinners first.   Any fish stories to tell?

I fished last Tuesday and Wednesday. Caught 5 walleyes in Lower WF on lindy and leach. 4 of the fish were caught within an hour on Tuesday early evening. Mornings were slow both days. Heading up again on Monday for a few days. Hopefully weather will stay stable.

  • Hi. I was out Monday night and Tuesday morning. My son and I caught six nice eater walleyes. Weather was stable with a consistent north and nw wind. Fish were easy to spot on the Lowrance. All in 14 - 16 weed edges. All that changed Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. No wind or slight west wind. No fish to be found on Wednesday morning. How quickly conditions change and fish patterns are impacted.

Hello. I fished Sunda night right after the all day rain. Picked up two nice eaters between 7-8. Saw a bunch of fish, then everything changed. Couldn't find a fish on Monday into Tuesday. Spent a couple hours looking. I did hook up on a couple of huge small mouth. Good luck.

Back from the cabin.  Fishing was ok .    Changed from day to day though.  Caught walleyes on weed edges,  drop offs and even a few trolling cranks over 80' of water.  Did notice the shoreline weeds are very thin.   Wild rice on chain is very poor,  will be bad for the duck hunters. Best fishing we had was for bass and crappies.  Wife caught a 24' smallie on a leech.  Now its off to Yellowstone and Glacier Parks.  Had to promise the boss I would not bring a fishing pole.   Leave a few for me guys and enjoy August.

I've been meaning to try some of this open water trolling over the deep basins.  Does it matter what time of day you go?  Do you just troll around looking for schools of bait fish or do you try to focus on the open water adjacent to points etc?

 

Also what depth are the weedlines stopping at?  I haven't been up since the 4th and didn't get a chance to fish then.  I'm wondering if the weedlines are getting deeper with the zebra muscles allowing deeper light penetration.  I'll be up in about a week and hopefully will be able to put a couple in the boat for a meal.

Open water seems best late afternoon into evening.  Have a neighbor who goes out at dark and at times does well trolling deep cranks over deep water.  Don't really look for baitfish. If you have a decent depth finder  you will see fish arches in the various depths.  Use a crank that runs a little above the most arches. Far as weeds I don't notice any great difference since the zebras invaded .  Seems weed lines are around 15-18 feet .  Weeds are not real thick anyplace this year.  Good luck.

If you can spot fish on sonar, GREAT, catch em. Sometimes it's not easy to find the target fish. I look for 'food' like bugs, minnows or cisco. I was fishing through billions of small minnows yesterday in 100+ FOW. They were easily visible over the side of the boat. If there are groups of gulls or loons, I'd start there. These suspended predators aren't just 'swimming around' they are living WITH the food 24/7! Anytime can produce good results but if I had to pick I'd say mornings are best, and often times leads to mid day action. Calm sunny days would be my 2nd choice. I'd hit up the obvious structure at prime time (evenings). Good luck!!!

I was out trolling over the deep unknown out there this weekend and Friday evening from 7-11pm with 3 eyes boated 16", 18.5", and a 19" along with a couple pike.  Fish caught over 110' of water at 8:30pm -9:45pm...rest of time was just washing the lure.  Saturday fished 7-10pm and caught a 19" eye at 8pm and a 14" at 9pm and nothing else.  Tried Sunday morning from 9-11 trolling and got skunked and then turned to look for some whitefish and it appears they left the 30-50' ranges and have all moved to 80' of water or more and are a little harder to catch.  Oh well!  Over all it was a picture perfect weather weekend on the chain!!!


FYI I had best luck 100' back on braid with a shadow rap (white) attached.

Ozzie, were you just trolling or down rigging at all?  Sounds like a down rigging situation but haven’t seen a comment as such.

 

Thanks for the report!

no downriggers.  I used shallow rapalas and my fishing partner used deep divers.  we both ran in the 90-150ft of line out.  The fish are free range feeding on minnows over the deeper water cooling off.  There are a lot of fish in the 20-60 foot depth range but my belief is the fish feed up and are roaming closer to the top of the water than we see on the graph.  For the fish caught we ended up with more eyes caught on the shallow and therns on the deeper.

Got out again Friday early morning and then again Sunday evening fishing on the chain...Friday morning was a bust as we tried trolling over deep water and did not get anything.  We then tried jigging raps on a weed line that treats us decent through the years and got 1 12" eye.  Sunday we tried again planning on taking a tip from a friend and trying some structure using long leaders lindy rigging...we did not get a bite despite the graph littered with fish in the 18' range.  I switched to a jigging rap and caught a 16" and a 19" in 20 minutes then we drifted off the spot while the other 2 set up jigging raps and by the time we got back to the structure the fish disappeared and we went deep water trolling back to the access.  while doing so we caught an 11" crappie over 70' of water and that was it.  Good times on the chain again!!!

got out for a couple hours on Friday from 8pm to 10pm.  Started jig rapping on a now popular spot on middle WF and only wasted 15-20 minutes doing that before we started trolling over the deep water.  We went into Trout and trolled all the way across the lake landing 2 17.25" walleyes. One on the west side over 70' of water and the other on the east side over 120' of water.  Once again just a beautiful evening on a beautiful chain of lakes!!

Hello. I fished a few hours Tues, Wed, and Thur mornings this week. Picked up a walleye or two each morning between 8 and 10 AM. Worked weeds and reefs in middle WF. Mornings were in the upper 40s. A little chilly. Spotted a bunch of fish, just weren't biting when I was out. I'm certain if I were on the lake by six I would have picked up a few more...but I like my rest!

Back from the wild West boys and girls.  A great trip through the National parks and up to Jasper.  Coming back through Canada the potholes in Alberta and Sask. are full of ducks.  As you get closer to Minn.  there are very few ducks.  Tell you something.
??  Spent some time around Flathead lake in Montana.  There they treat lake trout as trash fish. Get em 30 lbs. and think there junk. Wow   Back to the lake in a week or so.  Sounds like I haven't missed much.  Leave me some.  Rayguy

Most of the folk around Flathead are from the Rez.  They may not like Laker so most?  I wonder if they get good Ice on that lake? huum 🤔

welcome back rayguy! 

 

I got out for 2 hours Friday night and landed 2 eyes both 15.75" trolling across Trout.  Neither caught near each other again but what we catch is always the same size as the other fish...weird!!!  Oh well another great sunset to view!!  The fall bite should be starting soon especially with the weather and the temps dropping.  Off to the work week and back up Thursday to hopefully get out more than once this weekend!!  Good Luck

  • 2 weeks later...

Labor day weekend had me getting out a couple times on the great WFC!  We started Friday eve trolling from Trout access and landed a 15.25" eye right in the first 5 minutes...another hour trolling produced nothing.  We then went onto WF and started checking old haunts in the shallows and found a couple more ending the night with 3.  Saturday evening had us back out on the lake and we skipped the trolling and went back to our old haunts and jig rapped a few in the box in a couple hours before dark.  Sunday we got out around 10am stopped at our spot and got nothing so went to a community spot and saw a buddy land a nice eye...bs'd for a few minutes and then headed back to landing where buddy gifted us his 3 eyes he landed from 10:30-11:30.  Overall another beautiful weekend on the great lake system!!  Bring on the fall bite!!!

Headed back to cabin tomorrow for rest of month.  Just looked at the water temp.  and can't believe its mid 60's already.  Fall is here guys.  My neighbor at the lake texted he has been catching fish on the fall spots already.  Imagine Red Tails are at the wallet buster price.  If I get out next week a I'll write up a report.  GOOD FISHING!

      Hey guys, going up to nine mile lake camping and noticed that Echo lake next door has Atlantic Salmon. Any tips on catching one? Is it even possible this time of year? Any help would make me and the little one super happy. 
      Thanks,

      Just got back from our annual Grand Marais trip! I don’t know, maybe I’m just getting old and cranky, but over the last several times I’ve been up there, I’ve been liking the town less and less. Getting too artsy, hippy, liberal for me 🤷🏻‍♂️ Also sad to see the northshore getting absolutely “loved to death”! Has totally lost it’s up north feel.
       
      Anyway, enough ranting. Fishing was terrible! Numbers and quality were way down. Aside from 2 smallies that barely scratched 17 inches (both were skinny), not even any medium bass were caught. Only caught a few small pike, and 1 walleye. As always, kids had fun catching sunnies from the dock at hungry jack lodge. By the way, we ate at their restaurant for the first time…AMAZING! Also fell in love with castle danger cream ale. Had fun on greenwood lake watching bass jump out of the water and catching dragonflies. There must have been a hatch going on, because they were everywhere! And every bass had fat little belly’s. The rainbow trout on kimball lake has fat belly’s too. They were gorging on mosquito larvae. Casting from shore on superior was actually productive…on the way up I caught a long nose sucker on a daredevil spoon. In front of our motel, I finally caught my first lake trout from superior! Anyway, overall it was still a fun trip. Did some hiking, mini golf, alpine slide. Didn’t see any moose, but we did see a bear and a wolf. 
       
      As always, the people at Hungry Jack Lodge were great! I think we’re going to start staying there from now on.

      On the south end...  Walleyes were active this week.  Some warm weather hit the north country and the fish responded nicely.  Jigging with a live fathead minnow or frozen shiner vertically jigged or drifting spinners with a minnow or crawler in 15-29 feet of water has been the ticket for most walleye anglers.  
      Snelled spinners or harnesses work well all summer into the fall and also is a really good way to cover water.  They are also versatile as they can be fished shallow to deep.  1.0 - 1.25 mph is a good speed, as long as the spinner is spinning.
      Colors to start out with... hammered gold by itself or with another color, pink, glow red, orange and chartreuse.  All good colors in the stained waters.
      Trolling crankbaits is gaining steam with very good results.  A great way to cover water.  Get the lure where walleyes are living and hang on!
      On the Rainy River...   Some good walleye fishing on the river.  Most anglers fishing the river are locals or folks with smaller boats or on windy days.  Although many walleyes head back to the lake after the spawn, not all do!   There is 42 miles of navigable Rainy River from the mouth at Wheeler's Point to Birchdale which is 26 miles east of Baudette.
      Most anglers jigging with a minnow with spinners and crankbaits starting to perform well.  
      Multispecies in the river.  Smallmouth bass in rocky or slack water areas.  Pike in bays.  Sturgeon season opens again July 1st.  
      Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing continues around the Angle.  Fish coming from 14-25 feet of water.  A lot of fish being caught in the mud, but plenty around structure as well.
      Jigging with a minnow and drifting with spinners the go to methods.  Not as many anglers pulling crankbaits but they are working.  Much like the south end, Gold or gold mixed with another color has been effective this week.
      With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.  
      1.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  2.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  3.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      Finally got out Thursday morning to wet a line. Pretty slow. Got 1 bass, 1 northern and a big catfish.  First time getting a cat there. Pulled like crazy and for some reason my dragged decided not to work properly. Luckily I didn’t break the line.  Lots of weeds floating at access. Had to do a lot of cleaning when I loaded up. Big thank you to the young lady checking for AIS. She helped get the weeds off, then I power washed it at home.  Good luck everyone.

      On the south end...  Some excellent walleye fishing this week.  Guides did a nice job of being versatile a couple of days when the wind really blew.  Jigging with a live fathead minnow or frozen shiner vertically jigged in 14-29 feet of water has been the ticket for most walleye anglers.  
      Never discount trolling.  Some good reports of trolling crankbaits with very good results.  A great way to cover water where walleyes are living.  Mix up cranks with different shapes, sizes, wobbles and colors until you get dialed in.  Good to have everyone in the boat with a different lure to start out.
      Some popular crankbait colors to start out with...  pink UV Firetiger, Firetiger, chrome / blue, gold / orange.
      More big pike surprised unsuspecting walleye anglers this week.  When you get hooked up, hang on!
      On the Rainy River...   Some nice walleyes are being caught up and down the river in 8-15 feet of water.  A nice alternative to the lake for smaller boats and big blow days.
      Most anglers jigging with a minnow.  Spinners with crawlers and crankbaits are also a good option to cover water.  The river offers many species of fish in a setting second to none. 
      Sturgeon season opens again July 1st.  Summer sturgeon fishing doesn't get attention due to walleyes but it is productive and fun.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing continues around the Angle.  Fish coming from 13-20 feet of water.  Anchored around neck down areas with a bit of current, points and around shoreline structure producing nice fish.
      Most anglers jigging with a minnow.  Gold / chartreuse is a good color this week.  Gold, glow colors and brighter colors in the stained waters are a solid choice.
      With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.

      I only had a very short amount of time to fish this morning, so I went to the Apple River. Even though it’s pretty close, I never go here for the simple fact, the fishing is no good! I’m just amazed at the lack of fish holding structure this particular stretch has (Star Prairie). There’s no riffles, pools, boulders, undercut banks, nothing! It’s just fast water! I did catch 1 little rainbow, and lost 2 others. So it was nice to see at least a little sign of life in Apple.

      On the south end...  A great week of walleye fishing.  Jigging with a frozen shiner vertically jigged in 14-25 feet of water has been the ticket for most walleye anglers.  
      Some anglers locating fish shallow, especially in current areas or on a wind blown shoreline.  There are also good numbers of fish being caught anchored up in deeper water.  Different schools of walleyes are often tuned in to different bait, hence, not all walleyes are doing the same thing.  It is good to trust your electronics, try an area and if no luck, move on.  
      Jig colors, gold, orange, glow, pink, chartreuse or a mix of these colors on the same jig.
      Some good reports of trolling crankbaits where walleyes are roaming.  Crankbaits allow you to cover water and put your lure in front of a lot of walleyes.  Trolling shorelines, even if nobody else is, can produce good results.
      As is the case in a strong pike fishery, some big pike being caught but unsuspecting walleye anglers.  Many pike over 40 inches boated this week.
      On the Rainy River...   There is always a resident population of walleyes that live in the river even after the annual spawning run is over.  Some nice walleyes are being caught up and down the river.  
      Most are still jigging with a minnow.  Try current breaks or holes in the stretch of river you are fishing.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River from the mouth to Birchdale 30 miles east of Baudette.  The river offers many species of fish in a setting second to none. 
      Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing this past week around the Angle.  Fish coming from 5 - 25 feet of water.  A big variance but fish the goto spots.  Neck down areas with a bit of current, points and deep edges of bays producing nice fish.
      Most anglers jigging with a minnow.  Gold and brighter colors in the stained waters have worked well.
      With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.  
      1.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  2.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  3.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      Wow haven't been here for a while and logged in to say hello to all of my FM family and catch up on some of the forums. . Was hoping to see some nice eye pics, some detailed  reports, hot tips,  most especially in the center parts of the state.  To my amazement very very little activity.  Glad to c the Northern Vermillion guys keeping things rolling. I guess i'll throw one up . Had a group of guys fish a couple lakes opening wknd in the Atwater area. The bite was pretty slow early but we dealt with some stained water conditions. As the sun poked her way through the clouds we finally dialed them in. Water temps were 60 degrees surface temp. The  clarity 2-3ft. Shallow areas with mixed gravel 3-6 ft of water was key.. Crazy part of the bite was we had to use small 16th oz jigs with half crawler basically dragged away from the boat. Would of thought minnows would of been ticket but found out real quick the crawlers were the answer. We had a real nice fish fry and fire and once again another opener tradition in the books.. Looking forward to tommorow as I'LL be on the water bright and early trying some new water and looking for that next bite 😃
