I have never fished the lake, but assuming that Fortune Bay is near Everetts Bay, I would suggest fishing the structure coming out of the bay to Jackrabbit Island. Look for good weeds and cast shallower (>20ft) using bucktails, large swim baits, etc. Then Id head east to Cherry Island and do the same. Potatoe and surrounding main lake islands and their reefs can be productive, I've heard. If all fails, troll just outside the weed line with big, deep diving lures to cover ground. Bulldogs can also be effective if casting and retrieving while moving very slow around structure/weeds. Hope this helps somewhat. Good luck and be sure to report back.

I second what birdwatcher said. Been using them for a few years now and have never had any problems. Just search for panfish series spinning rods. I use the model PFS80LMF2. Can fish practically any way for them too.

Thanks jiggingspoons we have a few guide recommendations now and their numbers and will likely use one of them at some point next week. We leave this Saturday and return next Saturday. Does any one have any recent reports on whats been working/not working for walleye? Water temps.? Still closer to opener locations or are they sliding out yet? Thanks in advance I hope to check back 1 more time then won't be back on here until next weekend. Good luck to all that will be going out over the next week and I will be sure to report our outing!

We intend on hiring a guide this year. Last year some folks from Iowa hired one but only caught 1 walleye and 2 perch for a 8 hour trip. So we decided not to do that last year, and it's nothing against the guide (don't remember who). It truly was the toughest week as far a weather is concerned that I can remember. So I guess my question now is who would you guys recommend? I see Outright Angling, Leisure Outdoor, Steve Nosbisch, and Gary Trimble for that side of the lake all with reasonable rates. Getting excited less than a month away!

Was wondering if anyone has any advice for targeting walleye in about a month from now. My parents really liked Oak Point Resort
(in Steamboat Bay), and decided that's where we are going to have the family vacation again. We went during the last week of August last year and struck out on walleye pretty much, granted it was the worst week of weather I've seen on vacation in a long time. We are renting one of the nicer resort boats with a nicer graph on it. The few walleye we did catch were in Walker Bay and the Narrows trolling raps. (3 for the whole week). Thanks for looking and tight lines!

Wow nice fish. Catching a laker through the ice is something that I have not done yet either. Good looking specimen and congrats!

Nice report and great fish. 14.25" had got to feel good on the end of the rod!

Thank you for the reply Reinhard. Yea the rivers will be moving but I hope if the rain stops early today that Saturday evening and Sunday should be ok as far as the water flow. I should have mentioned that we (I) have no idea about the "runs" these fish have into the rivers as far as timing and location but like I said he is set to try it out. We were thinking of using spawn sack imitation flies but not sure if that time has passed.

Thanks for the reports guys. Was wondering if it would be worth the trip from the cities to fly fish up there this weekend. My dad and I just got into fly fishing this year and have had some success with brown and brook trout in WI. He now wants to go for steehead and salmon if possible. Have never fished any of the tributaries up there but do know a lot of the area from Duluth to Tofte from hunting and fishing on lakes up there. Any help appreciated!
