The walleye bite continues to be productive on the main basin reefs in most areas of Ontario waters. Both jigging and trolling spinners on the reefs are producing good catches of walleye, and fish in the 28″to 31″ range are being caught daily. The mayfly hatch has lingered on this week, but the heat may finally bring it to an end, and kick off the July trophy walleye bite.
The muskies have really started to move with the recent hot weather, and many have moved onto rock structure. Many fish over 50″ have been seen, and a 58.5″ was caught recently. Northern and bass anglers have been doing well casting to rocky points and shorelines, and the clear water this year has aided in locating underwater rocks and weeds to cast to.
In Minnesota waters, jigging leeches and drifting with spinners has resulted in fast action on the E side of Little Oak, and flatline trolling crankbaits on rocky flats near Little Massacre and Crowduck I has produced good catches as well.
