Here is our weekly fishing report:
Up at the NW Angle, we had another nice week weather-wise. Our water temperature dropped a little and is at 64 degrees. Walleyes were found in deep holes, gaps and off deep points (about 32 feet). They are starting to come into Johnson's Pass which is a fall migration area.
On the Minnesota side, Lake Trails at the south end of Oak Island was the best this week. Also, the deep hole off of Big Island.
On the Ontario side, we were fishing walleyes and crappies in the same area as last week, to the east about 14 miles from Sunset Lodge. My crappie tip of the week is to use a 2 inch long Rapala with a 3 way swivel and drop sinker. We were trolling at 1/2 mph.
Muskie Tip by Forrest Huset: It's time to switch over to trolling for the rest of the season!
Biggest fish reported: 30" walleye that was wrapped up for mounting, 15.5" crappie, 12" perch, 46" muskie and a 19" smallmouth bass!
Eagles are really grouping up for their fall migration, we saw quite a few while out fishing this week.
Duck opener was Saturday! There are lots of local ducks back in the rice and beaver ponds.
Until next week, good fishing!
