The fishing and weather continue to be wild at the Angle! On the calmer days, anglers have found the walleyes are hitting on the rock reefs of the Little Traverse area. Average size has been excellent, with lots of fish over 20”. Jigs or spinner rigs tipped with a minnow or crawler have been the best presentation. The mayfly hatch is still going on, and most of the fish being caught are eating them. Anglers are still catching some big pike while walleye fishing, and muskie casting has been hit and miss for most anglers. Bass fishing has continued to be productive along the boulder shorelines. Try using a topwater bait if the bass are breaking the surface for mayflies.
In Minnesota waters, the Little Oak area has been productive, especially around the rocks on the east side. Spinners with leeches and crawlers have been the best presentation.
