On the south end… Summer walleye fishing is in full swing. Boat ramps are available if you bring your own boat. Resort charter boats are available and putting anglers on walleyes for those who want to make life easy.
Nice pods of eater walleyes in 10-15′ in front of Pine Island near both the Lighthouse and Morris Point gaps.
Deep mud in 28 – 34′ holding large numbers of walleyes. Drifting spinners with crawlers and trolling crankbaits have been effective.
Reefs in Big Traverse Bay are holding nice numbers of walleyes. Anchored up and jigging or pulling spinners producing good fish.
Jumbo perch, pike and a few crappies in the mix as well.
On the Rainy River… Good summer fishing continues on the Rainy River. Areas out of the current continue to be good spots this year.
Sturgeon anglers catching some nice fish. Anglers can catch and release fish or keep one sturgeon through the summer if a sturgeon tag is purchased.
Big pike are still active in bays and feeder rivers. Smallies are living around rocks, current breaks, bays and bridges.
Up at the NW Angle… Fishing on both sides of the border continue to be excellent. Jigging and pulling spinners have been catching a lot of walleyes.
Go to areas such as reefs, neck down areas with moving water and points are holding fish. Good numbers of walleyes also setting up on flats, often spread out but often in good numbers.
Muskie anglers catching nice numbers of fish with some good quality fish over 50″ in the mix casting shoreline structure.
