Fishing report from Flag Island Resort 7/25/17
On the Minnesota side the Walleye, Sauger and Perch bite has been good. The Walleyes and Saugers are found in areas ear reefs, points and scattered boulders and 24 to 34 feet deep seems to be the magic depth. 3/8 ounce to ½ ounce Jigs in gold, orange and pink are producing as well as spinners with crawlers in the same colors. Crank baits have also been producing. The water temperature is between 68 and 70 degrees.
Over in Ontario the Walleyes, Saugers, perch, Musky and Smallies are all being caught. The walleyes are beginning to move back onto the reefs and mud areas adjacent to reefs. Perch can also be found in these areas. Musky are o rock bar and mid lake rock reefs. The depth for walleye is 15 to 26, for sauger 26 to 30, musky 5 to 15, Smallmouth 10 to 15 and perch 25 to 30. Saddles between rock points/reefs in the mud for walleyes as well as areas of current, perch and sauger. Rock reefs, bars and cabbage for Musky. Jigs with minnows; 3/8 to ½ oz in gold pink and orange or spinners with crawlers in gold orange, pink, and green have all been successful for walleye. Spinnerbaits, buck tails and top water baits for musky.
Until next week good luck fishing,
