Up at the NW Angle, we had a warm stretch of weather which has changed our fall fishing pattern. With the water temperature back up to 72 degrees, the fish have moved up into the rocks so we're fishing shallower than we had been at 16-24 feet. Fish and emerald shiners tend to move around less when the water temperature is warmer. Our temperatures will be cooling down this week so I'm expecting the crappie bite to pick back up. The walleye bite remained strong.
On the Canadian side, we were fishing shallow points on the west side of Falcon Island. Also, fishing currents in Big Narrows continues to be good - you have to keep looking but the fish are there! Forrest took a break from muskie fishing this week with the water temperatures back up and said they found the fish sitting up in the rocks sunning themselves. Spinnerbaits and Bucktails were the two hot baits he was using.
On the Minnesota side - the launches are moving up closer to the rocks near Little Oak and Four Blocks.
Until next week, good fishing!
