Walleyes have the feed bags on. MWC tournament anglers reporting strong numbers of walleyes and a very healthy lake. Numerous trophies from 8 – 11.5 lbs brought in. Drifting and trolling spinners and crawlers or trolling cranks in the basin in 26-34 ft best. Some fish on structure, others in mud.

Up at the NW Angle… Walleye fishing excellent. Lots of fish around Crow Duck, Four Blocks, and Little Oak Islands. Hammered gold, orange and chartreuse still hot colors. 8 – 24′. Crankbaits on Little Traverse Bay picking up. Ontario side, crawler harnesses on fire on reefs. Lots of muskies being caught as well. Smaller baits vs large best for most

Fishing Report For July 3, 2018
Walleye fishing remains strong. Drifting and trolling on the sand bars very effective this past week, many large walleyes and plenty of great eaters! The major bug hatch seems to be over (for now). Some anglers using crankbaits on lead core but most still finding good success drifting with spinners and crawlers.
 
On the Rainy River, sturgeon fishing “keep season” is now open until Sept 30. Anglers can keep one sturgeon per year in the 45-50 inch range or over 75 inches. MN catch and release records continue to be broken, bring measuring tape and camera. Smallmouth bass anglers finding nice bass in typical go to areas, rock, bridges, current breaks, etc.
 
Up at the NW Angle… Fishing is excellent on both sides of the border. Walleyes being found in wind blown areas in shallow water or out deep in 24-27 feet. Spinners over mud working very good. Orange or hammered gold hot colors. Of course, jigs still producing in structure. Muskie anglers catching big fish over 50″ this past week.
