Minnesota walleye action remains strong with spinners in mud bottomed areas near reefs using both minnows and crawlers. Fish can also be found in shallower water (15ft. or less) around Garden Island. Crankbaits seem to be the most effective at enticing larger fish.
Canadian walleye fishing has been fabulous this past week. The jig and minnow bite is on! Multiple boats ran out of bait and had just as much success switching to plastics. Bottom bouncing with crawlers remains effective in soft bottom areas as well. Crappies continue to school up on deep water points. Hot windows of muskie bites have become shorter but still with good success. Plenty of fish in the 4ft plus range and even a couple over 50!
Water temps remain stable between 64-67 degrees.
See you soon!
