If you like big walleyes, the bite is on. Spinners with crawlers and trolling crankbaits in 28-31 ft pulling numbers of fish and big fish. Deep mud (no man's land) and deep reefs producing. The winning team for the David A. Andersen Warrior Boats tournament had almost 45 lbs for 5 fish, a 9 pound average! Gold, glow and bright colors continue to be solid choices. Pike active, perch and smallmouth bite in many areas of the lake.

Anglers in the Rainy River finding some walleyes with morning/evening. Trolling cranks or pulling spinners producing the best. Smallmouth bass in good numbers along shoreline bridge embankments and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing is on fire with a first time group boating 20 sturgeon in two days. Top three sturgeon were 53, 57 and 61 inches.

Up at the NW Angle, excellent fishing continues. In Minnesota, the bite has been on fire with trolling. Blue, chrome, clown or UV pink has worked great in 26-30. White, orange or chrome spinners have been doing very well from Four Blocks to Garden Island. Up in Canada, jigging walleyes early morning and late afternoon has been the best, with orange, gold and yellow being the most productive, as has pulling spinners in 20-28 using orange along the reefs. Muskies have been very active with any fish being seen after bucktails and hard baits. Our guests boated 49" and 51.5" muskies this past week!!!
