Eagle River Area
Northern pike are still putting on an aggressive bite in 10 feet
of water or less; use a spinnerbait or a Rapala Husky Jerk in a
walleye or minnow pattern. Smallies are providing a solid bite in
15 feet of water or less over sand and gravel bottom and rocks, or
off of rocky points. Use a small spinner, a Husky Jerk, or a jig
tipped with a minnow or leech. There’s a good mixed bag of panfish
hitting. The crappies, bluegills, and perch are hanging together in
15 feet of water or less. Use a crappie minnow, crawler, or leech.
Muskie action is on and off. Fish in 10 feet of water or less, and
use a variety of baits, including bucktails, crankbaits, or
topwaters. Walleye action remains decent. Some lakes were having a
mayfly hatch last week. On those lakes (usually the deeper, clearer
lakes), fish mud flats in 20 to 30 feet of water. It’s important to
note that on these lakes, the walleyes will suspend at any depth,
so be prepared to fish at varying depths until the walleyes are
located. On lakes that are not undergoing a mayfly hatch, fish the
weeds in 10 feet of water or less.
