The walleye bite is on! Walleyes increasing in numbers still along the south shore, Long Point, Zippel Bay, Lighthouse Gap, Four Mile Bay and in river. Anglers picking through small fish to fill live wells with 18-19 inch walleyes. Walleyes have the feed bags on. 18-30 feet holding fish. Anchor up with a jig with a shiner minnow. Pink, pink/white and gold have been the best colors. Reefs holding fish as well.

Rainy River anglers finding more success each day. Shiners still moving in river. Vertical jigging tipped with a shiner is best method. Some anglers trolling crankbaits with success as well. Smallmouth bass, pike and crappies showing up. Good numbers of sturgeon of all sizes being caught with some over 50" and 60".

Up at the Northwest Angle, in MN waters, jig and a minnow/shiner will fill your live well. Areas of best success between islands in current areas with depths ranging from 13-26. Fish are really hungry and are packing on the pounds before ice season! Canadian walleye fishing is also outstanding. Orange, pink or chartreuse with a minnow/shiner have been effective off of points at depth of 18-26. Musky action transitioning from shallow reef tops to deeper waters, trolling cranks or jigging big rubber is common practice now. Many smallmouth have been caught this week with wounds from predatory fish.
