Lake Superior trolling has been good to fair, depending on the
weather. Stable high pressure has brought the best action, but
there have still been some fish caught between the thunderstorms
and big winds. Many tactics are working right now, including some
board fishing, but by the end of the month it will be downrigger,
Dipsey, and leadcore presentations that will be effective. Fish are
being caught all over, from Washburn north through the South
Channel, out onto the flats, and up into the islands. The best bet
right now is to cover lots of water and depths in the water column
until a pattern can be established. Smallie fishing has been good.
Some fish are on the beds, and some have not started yet. The “cut”
and Kakagon have been producing fish in 2- to 6-foot depths.
Walleye and northern pike trollers are finding fish still at the
head of the bay, and more fish are spreading out to the channel
edges and off-shore structure.

Inland reports are picking up with the rising temps. Walleyes
are still in shallow water, and biting on small crankbaits or jig
and minnow combos. Crappies are up shallow, and bass and bluegills
are making beds on most lakes. Weed growth is exploding, and pike
fishing in the new growth has been good. Muskie reports have been
fair. Unstable weather has hindered the bite somewhat.
