Fishing Report For July 5, 2017

Good numbers of nice walleyes and sauger this week. Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing a lot of fish. Gold, glow and bright colors doing the best. Some walleyes feeding shallow when bait is present, 14-18′. Others set up in 29-30′ in Big Traverse. Some anglers starting to troll cranks with success. Pike, perch and smallmouth mixed in all over the lake.

Anglers in the Rainy River finding some walleyes with morning/evening bite the best. Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass in good numbers along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opened July 1st.

Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to upper 60’s and low 70’s. The east side of Four Blocks, Lunatic and Little Traverse Bay producing good numbers of walleyes on MN side. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 – 28 feet. Some anglers starting to pull crankbaits. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells with walleyes. Smallmouth on fire with some boats finding 100 fish per day around Tranquil Channel with crankbaits and spinnerbaits. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught and getting even better as water warms.

JULY 8, 2017

Quite a day today!

*New Bombardier trail started. Dale in the Dump truck and my very first time in charge of making this ditch disappear!

**Tomorrow the electrician will be here and we are getting a start on the electrical hook up’s upgraded, repaired, and add electric to the RV sites that do not have electricity.
We are also working on installing a light at the shoreline,before this winter, to help anyone and everyone find our lake access at night coming on or off the lake and when there is snow storm’s.

***Made contact with the guy’s that spray foamed Dale’s B12 so we will have my B 12 done and all the Sleepers are going to have the frame under the floor spray foamed too! Just waiting now for the quote!!

?So much more progress made but keeping it a secret until more details fall in place. ?

Thank-you everyone for following our progress.

Ready, set, begin! What we are building here is our Bombardier trail when we come back from the lake to our house. Many a times we had vehicles have to wait for us when we were heading to the house and they were heading to the lake. Now we will have our own “B12” trail off to the East of the road. Problem solved!! ?
