Walleye on the Move

The fish are biting but everyone is deer hunting!  Some guests are hunting morning and evening and fishing during the day.  Walleyes are being caught in 20′ of water in front of Pine Island jigging with a minnow.  This school of fish have been there for weeks.  Looks good for early ice.  Fishing has been good near NW Point, Morris Point, Zippel Bay, and near Twin Islands.  We believe those fish are still there to be had.

On the Rainy River, water temp is about 44 degrees.  More walleyes and larger walleyes are showing up in the river.  Good reports at various spots from Wheeler’s Point to Frontier Access.  Wabanica Chapel, Winter Road River, Baudette Bridge, Hattie’s Hole have produced this week.  Orange, and gold mixed with bright color the ticket tipped with minnow.  Sturgeon fishing is catch and release and is in effect.

Up at the NW Angle, not many fishing as hunting is stealing the show.  For those out, walleye action in a range of depth 15-26 feet jigging near Oak Island, Rabbit Ears, and Hay Island. On the Ontario side, areas with current adjacent to deep holes best. Walleye and crappie bite excellent at various locations along Falcon Island.  Muskie fishing going well trolling in 10-18′ adjacent to wind blown points.
