Detroit Lakes: It's the time of year when you want to be on the move to find fish. Walleye have been hitting when the wind is blowing or it is cloudy. When the water is flat or there is bright sunshine, try your luck with other species. Northerns have been active on Melissa, Sallie and Big McDonald lakes and panfish have been biting in the weeds everywhere on small jigs tipped with small leeches or a piece of nightcrawler. Bass fishing has been best on Melissa, Floyd, Cotton and Long lakes.

Lake of the Woods: The fishing has yet to slow down here. The Northwest Angle and islands still are experiencing excellent fishing for multiple species. Walleye limits are been filled left and right in various depths of water (10 to 12 feet and 22 to 26 feet). A 3/8-ounce gold or orange jig is your best bet. On the south side of the lake, anchor in 30 to 32 feet of water and use a brightly colored jig with a leech or minnow and get ready to catch your limit of walleye. Spots to try are just outside of Pine Island, Morris Point and Zippel Bay.

Mille Lacs: The mud flats are still the place for walleye during the daytime. Crawlers and spinners fished along the edges of the flats (Matton, Shultz and 7-mile) are consistently producing fish. Dark blade colors (blue, green, black) are working the best. In the evening, hit the mid-to-deep rocks (15 to 25 feet). Slip bobbers with leeches are the ticket at night. Northerns are biting on large suckers in Wahkon and Wigwam bays.

Crosby area: Walleyes are hitting spinner rigs tipped with nightcrawlers around Minister's Point on Serpent Lake in 18 to 24 feet of water, as well as a few at Farm Island in 16 to 18 feet. Northerns and bass have been biting everywhere, especially Bay Lake and Mission Lake. Panfish reports have been good on all area lakes, with crappies and bluegills taking crappie minnows under bobbers along the weedlines in 11 to 15 feet of water.

St. Croix River: Even though it's July, the walleyes and sauger are biting here, although in waves. Anglers are using five-foot leaders, and the hot crankbait colors have been hot steel, crawdad, bleeding hot olive and firetiger. Fish are biting in nine to 20 feet of water.
