In Ontario waters, the main walleye bite continues to be on the reefs both in the islands and Little Traverse areas. Jigs tipped with nightcrawlers, minnows, and plastics are putting nice keeper fish in the boat, as well as fish in the 5# – 10# class. The bigger fish will become even more commonplace as the month wears on.

Muskie anglers continue to report good fishing, with lots of fish sighted and good fish landed daily. Topwaters and the Double Cowgirl-type bucktails seem to be the most productive baits recently. Casting for bass and pike has remained productive, and there have been a recent rash of pike on the 20# class landed by walleye anglers on the reefs.

On the Minnesota side, the bars on the E side of Little Oak, and the reefs around the Four Blocks and McDonell I area are producing fish for anglers using jigs or spinner rigs. Crankbait trollers will find fish in the boulder flats W of Crowduck I.
