In Canadian waters, the walleyes are moving into fall patterns; dropoffs outside shallow bays, deep points, and current flow areas have all been productive. Plan to go through a lot of bait. There has been some nice catches of jumbo perch this week on mud areas, and the crappies have become more active with the colder weather.
Big pike and muskie have been showing up near the schools of walleye, and hitting on jigs and chasing fish being brought in. Breaking out the trolling gear and making passes near schools of walleye, crappie and perch is a good alternative to casting right now.
