Lots of fish to be had all around the lake. June showers were abundant but that didn’t seem to faze the fish. Jig and minnow remains top dog as far as tactics go. Guides are on fish. Depths in 18-28 feet are holding strong on the south shore and reefs are producing as well. Jigs with gold are doing great when accompanied with a rattle. Trolling crank baits in the shallows after dinner are producing some fish.
On the Rainy River, walleyes are being caught near the mouth of the river and into four mile bay. Many smaller walleyes and saugers are being caught further up river. Jigs and minnows remains best option for catching walleyes. Most anglers fishing the lake.
Up at the NW Angle, water temp is 63 degrees. Resorts and guides are finding walleyes in 20′ or less targeting points pulling crawler harnesses or 1/4 ounce jigs in pink and gold while tipped with a minnow. Smallies are the beds.
