Hello from the NW Angle!
This week we saw some really nice slot Walleye caught with multiple over 27”. Water shallower than 25’ has been best for larger fish while using the dead stick. Houses on 25-29 ft have been better for numbers producing a mixed bag of Walleye, Sauger andPerch. Eel pout catch rates have been on the rise within the last few weeks. It is important to keep your Dead stick consistent and not start jigging when fish are present on the Vexilar.
Canadian Walleye and Crappie action remains strong with Anglers averaging 8 crappies per person. Even when the Crappie bite is tough, good numbers of fish can be coaxed on to the hook by varying presentations often and using different arrays of bait including larvae, minnow heads or plastics. They are still being found in 30 ft holesabout 6 inches to 2 ft off of the bottom. Points and reefs between 22-27 ft continue to produce walleye with a jig and minnow set up. Pink and glow white are still the hot colors.
Until next week,
Sunset Lodge Staff
