The fishing has been surprisingly good in most sections of the lake, considering that the ice has only been off for about two weeks time. Water temps are in the 60s in most areas. In Canadian waters, walleyes seem to be popping up all over, from shallow shorelines and rockpiles to deep rock points and dropoffs. Keep moving until you hit active fish. Some nice post-spawn females are being caught along with the eater fish. Smallmouth bass have been holding deep off the shorelines, but will move shallow to begin spawning any day now. Expect to find plenty of pike in the shallow back bays. Lake trout anglers have been doing well lately as well.
In Minnesota waters, walleye fishermen have been doing well around Oak Island trolling spinners and crankbaits.
