The walleyes are coming off their spawn and they are just starting to put on the feed bag.
We have been getting these fish by pulling crawler harness in shallow water. Most of our fish are in less than ten feet so you we aren’t letting a lot of line out.
We are focusing on the corners and deeper pockets of this shallow river.
In our inland lakes, panfish are up in shallow and they are just about ready to spawn. A jig and minnow, jig and crawler, or a jig and plastic under a bobber is how you will want to target them. Walleyes are going on our inland lakes. Live bait seems to be working the best, leeches in particular.
The St. Louis river is kicking out some walleyes and everything is working. You can get them casting joint Rapala’s, live bait, or slow rolling a jig and a paddle tail.
Lake Superior continues to have a good bite for bright colored stick baits trolling. Anglers are also starting to get a few fish on flash or fly combos. Anglers are getting a nice mixed bag of lake trout, coho salmon, brown trout and the occasional king salmon.
That is the latest report from the Twin Ports area. Hopefully everybody is off and to a good start for the fishing season.
