With the unstable weather patterns; wind and rain and the water temp at 69 degrees and holding, the Muskie bite on the Ontario side was slow last week. With all of the wind stirring up the lake we have found some out deep and in thick weeds. For Walleye, Big Narrows has been the place to be. We have still found some in shallow water along shorelines and the Reefs on the breaks in the mud. Pulling spinners in the shallows and using jigs in deep water with a frozen emerald shiner have proven to be successful.
On the Minnesota side the mayflies are dying out! 😉 The reefs are beginning to hold fish, the average depth for reef fishing was 24’ and 8-14’ for shorelines. Drift Point to Crowdock has shown us some good fishing the past few days and the fish have been feeding on crawfish. We have been seeing many limits going home with a big mix of different sized fish.
Good luck fishing,
