On the main basin… Many strong reports from the lake. Mixed schools of fish from 14-28′ along south shore from Lighthouse Gap to Rocky Point. Most anchored up and jigging with frozen shiners. Gold or gold mixed with other colors working well. The key is finding the fish. Once found, fish tend to cooperate nicely.
On the Rainy River… Strong walleye activity continues. Jig and frozen shiners continue to be the go-to method with some anglers also trolling crankbaits. Gold, orange and yellow for jigs. As waves of walleyes move through, reports change daily up and down river. Be mobile, move around if a spot isn’t producing. A lot of good reports in 8-14′. Some big walleyes caught over the weekend. Sturgeon continue to have the feed bag on. The sturgeon catch and release season goes through April 23, 2019.
Up at the NW Angle… Fishing continues to be really really good. Limits of walleyes being caught in 14 – 25′. Jigging still producing. Look for areas of current in neck down areas and outside of bays. Fall crappie bite in on. Muskie trollers still boating and releasing good numbers of fish. The best fall fishing is yet to come, but only for the hearty! Dress warm and hang on.
