The reports from the lakes indicate that the walleye are biting and hitting jigs and minnows as well as jigs and leeches. Night crawlers are also working extremely well. Gulp Alive is working very well too if you don’t want the hassle of life bait. The walleye seem lazy (probably due to the cold water) and too much action with your jig is deterring the hit. Drop it to the bottom and count to 10 before moving it and the walleye are hooking themselves.
The walleye have been moving out of the river areas and into the lakes.
Northern are active on flashy spoons like Doctor spoons and Cleos.The biggest northern are being caught near the rivers probably since the suckers are still in the area spawning.
This coming week will be very busy around here but if you have time near the end of June or early July, for a fly in adventure with Ignace Outposts, drop us a note. We have limited openings for that time available.
