Good Numbers of Eater Walleyes and Trophies

On the south end... In addition to anglers catching good numbers of eater walleyes, there are a lot of big walleyes being caught and released. Now is that deep summer pattern anglers look forward to. Two main techniques. Drifting or pulling spinners with crawlers or leeches. Hammered gold, glow white and glow red are good colors. The second technique is trolling crankbaits over the deep mud. Trolling is a fun technique with no snags, miles and miles of space and thousands of walleyes. 29-34' has been best. Still some walleyes are being caught in various shallow areas based on forage opportunities.

On the Rainy River... Sturgeon fishing is picking up. A sturgeon rig and 3 ounce no roll sinker with crawlers and/or frozen shiners is the ticket. Focus on deep holes. Walleyes scattered on flats and deeper holes. Smallmouth bass as a rule focused on rocks. Pike scattered in bays and weedy areas. Try hitting numerous "goto" spots up and down the river casting crankbaits, spinners and jigs. Multi-species action and a fun day.

Up at the NW Angle... Until the US / Canada border opens, guests can travel across the lake staying and fishing in MN waters. There are shuttle services available and fishing for multi species has been excellent. Check with your favorite NW Angle resort for options.

Good walleye fishing around Crow Duck Island, north of Garden Island and areas with deeper mud. The best presentation continues to be drifting and trolling spinners with a crawler, leech or a minnow. Big Pike and some muskies in deep bays and rocky points. Smallies in weedy bays and rocky points. A complete list of lodging available at
