Fall Fishing Continues 11/17/2015

Fishing remains good.  Walleyes, saugers and some trophy walleyes are being caught in 14-30′ of water in front the Lighthouse Gap and Pine Island on the south end of the lake.  This school of fish is plentiful and could cause a great bite for early ice.  Fishing also good near NW Point, Morris Point, Zippel Bay, and near Twin Islands.

On the Rainy River, walleye fishing has picked up.  More walleyes and larger walleyes are showing up in the river.  Good reports at various spots from Wheeler’s Point to Frontier Access.  The fish are sluggish and prefer jig and minnow still near bottom.  Orange, and gold mixed with bright color the ticket tipped with minnow.  Sturgeon fishing awesome this week with many groups catching 8-10 per day, with fish up to 64″.  Catch and release only is in effect.

Up at the NW Angle, not many fishing as hunting is stealing the show.  Walleye action continues in 15-26 feet jigging near Oak Island, Rabbit Ears, and Hay Island. On the Ontario side, areas with current adjacent to deep holes best.  Muskie fishing going well trolling in 10-20′ adjacent rock walls.
