The weather has been windy and wild over the last week at the Angle, but the fishing has remained excellent! In Canadian waters, the rock reef walleye bite has changed over the week, the fish have been scattered on the rockpiles in the Little Traverse area, so moving often from reef to reef has been the best game plan for those larger fish. Fishing farther north on deep reefs or working point areas has been a better plan for numbers and action. The cooler weather has given us a little preview of fall fishing, with some nice crappies and perch showing up in our walleye catch.
Muskie fishing has been good, but they seem to be actively feeding for only short periods during the unsettled weather. PM hours have been the best, especially the evening, when the water is at its warmest temps. Pike have been affected in a similar way by the weather; trolling crankbaits has been productive for the bigger ones.
In Minnesota waters, Lunatic I, Fourblocks, and Little Oak I. have been producing walleye; covering ground with spinner rigs to contact active fish on structure has been working best.
