Walleye action remains consistent with good stringers headed for the dinner table each day. The fish have left the shallows for now and have been roaming waters from 10 to 25 feet of water. Minnows remain the bait of choice, but many folks are crossing over to leeches and crawlers linked to spinner rigs. Keep in mind, that when you are fishing stained or off-color water try brighter patterns.

Some big northern pike are being caught and they do react to bright spinner and spoon colors. The pike still remain in the shallows where the bait fish are hanging as the sun warms the water.

Some lake trout still being co-operative in relatively shallow water around twenty to thirty feet of water. Large minnows and ciscoes are the bait of choice but some anglers are hooking up by trolling large crank baits along the breaks.
