In Ontario, the walleye bite continues to be strong on the reefs in the Little Traverse area. Both spinner and jigging presentations are working well, and lots of fish over 25” are being caught. Expect this bite to last for a few more weeks.

Muskie anglers have been seeing lots of fish, many over 50”, but the recent hot weather has made them more likely to follow than bite. Fishing evenings and days with cooler temps will help with that problem. Lately active areas for muskie have been Bishops Bay, Falcon Island, and the Little Traverse area. Few anglers are pursuing bass and northern pike at this time, but casting to rocky points and shorelines with lures able to fish below the 80 degree surface layer will produce fish.

Anglers fishing Minnesota waters have had good luck around Lunatic I., Crowduck I., and the reefs south of Oak I. Little Oak I. has been productive as well. Jigs, crankbaits, and spinners are all productive presentations.
