100 fish per boat!
Another great week! 100 fish per boat per day is not uncommon and a nice 31 walleye was released and is waiting for you this week. I continue to brag about the fishing up here in the northland this year and it really is not a fish tale, this is true facts right from the dock pad. Watch our dock cam daily between 5pm -6pm and you will see for yourself the exceptional fishing we have to offer.
Catching rate is up as the technique starts to change
It really is nice to finally have some true summer weather. The temperatures are now in the normal range with highs in the 70s , we are finally starting to see the water temperature starting to warm up. This recent weather change has also started the best catching technique to change. Anglers are just starting to pull the anchor and do more drifting. We are also starting to use a few leeches and spinners come out of the tackle boxes compared to the consistent jig and minnow technique that we have used the past six weeks. The ideal depth continues to be between 24-31 just a six to fifteen mile ride from the Sportsmans Lodge in Big Traverse Bay on Lake of the Woods. The catch has been mainly walleyes, but saugers and PERCH continue to round out the fish cooler at the end of the day. Yes, as I said last week the PERCH are biting! Twenty perch per boat has not been uncommon lately, one boat even boasted 34 perch & 42 walleyes (limit) a few days ago. They may be smaller than a walleye, but they keep you busy and pretty tasty too.
