6/10/13 – Rainy River

Nice week of walleyes and weather!

Some rain has found its way back into the area by the end of the week but the last week has beautiful and fishing has been steady. The stable weather pattern has prompted many fish to continue on into early summer patterns. Many walleyes are being found scattered on rock piles and sand and gravel flats. The mud continues to hold fish too, anchoring and jigging.

Jigging with minnows and leeches around rock piles with ¼ to 3/8 ounce jigs. 20 to 25 feet of water has been productive but they change depths rapidly. Pulling #7 shads along gravel and rocky shorelines has still been effective. Pulling bottom bouncers and spinners around the rock reefs is a good option too, and is a good way to find where they are concentrated on a piece of structure. Look to gold and orange to start with for spinners, and “baby bass” for shad raps. Gold and anything glow or with a rattle for jig options.

6/10/13 – Oak Island

The summer begins on Oak Island!

It seems like it took longer than normal but things are in full summer mode on the islands. The nice warm weather has greened up the islands and the water is slowly warming, allowing some of the late spawning fish like musky’s and smallmouth to seize their moment. Walleyes continue to bite well and are beginning to spread out more.

Shallow reefs close to shore have been good, jigging with minnows. The shallow bays are just now getting some weed growth in them and would b good places to find norhterns right now. As the weed beds grow the small baitfish will seek out shelter and the big predators will move in too. Cast weed less spoons and spinner baits thru the weeds and hold on!
