( May 26, 2020 )

Fishing improved again this Memorial Weekend as water temps were on the rise. Area bait stores have shiners and that means walleyes should be shallow right? How shallow should they be?

We didn't find walleyes super shallow like in previous Memorial weekends but they were still relating to shoreline structure. Sometimes you can find an active school chasing shiners up in 4 to 6 feet of water and the bite is on fire. This weekend did not follow those guidelines. Most of us found our walleyes in 8-14 feet of water in and around sand grass, new growth weeds, and some rock. The winds were calm so that influenced where we looked also. Where did you find your walleyes?

Walleyes wanted a 1/16th or 1/8th ounce jig tipped with a shiner. Sometimes they wanted it slow and other periods they wanted it fast. Jig cadence and speed is VERY IMPORTANT this time of year. We also caught a handful of walleyes on lindy rigs tipped with a leech or crawler.

Leech Lake kicked out some good reports as well as Upper Red, Cass, Winnibigoshish and of course, Mille Lacs.

Crappies are in the shallows on most lakes now too. Bring those kids out and show them some crappie action. Remember to practice catch and release and only keep enough for a meal. We need to protect our panfish populations.

We hope you all are getting thru these crazy times and most importantly staying healthy. We wish everyone the best. We are currently open for guiding and will practice all sanitary precautions and social distancing guidelines while putting fish in the boat and having a fun day on the water. We have open dates remaining for summer 2020 so please give us a call today to get out fishing and set the hook.
