Fishing started slowly last week, as is often the case when a high-pressure system moves in after a low pressure clears out. By middle week almost everything was getting back to predictable bite patterns for our guests.
Lake Trout being caught as shallow as 24′ and as deep as 120′. They were about as scattered as possible, but biting for many. The biggest Lake Trout caught for the week were in the 12-pound range Hopefully, baitfish will start pushing deeper soon and the Lake Trout will follow.
Northern Pike – Stevens Bay was solid. Cedartree was successful. Biggest Northern Pike were 36″ – 38″.
Walleye – Stevens Bay is starting to see the Walleye feeding up in the weeds. Cedartree was slow for some and productive for others.
Crappie – Think they are done until the fall feed.
Smallies – Moving in shallow on parts of Crow Lake and getting ready to spawn. This is when fish size and catch numbers are both good. Cedartree was quiet for bass. Lake of the Woods was decent for bass bite.
Muskie opener is coming up this weekend.
