Eagle River Area
Muskies are providing good, steady action. Bucktails run fairly
fast through and over weeds are producing a lot of fish. Early and
late in the day, use a surface bait. When working thick weeds, run
a spinnerbait fast, and just under the surface. Running these baits
faster in and over weeds seems to provoke strikes rather than
follows. Some nice trophies have been taken, with sizes going into
the upper 40s, and one at 51 inches. Walleyes are providing good
action; fish mud flats in 15 to 30 feet of water. Use a jig tipped
with a minnow, crawler, or leech. The best bite is late afternoon
into evening. Smallmouth action is good. Fish 5 to 15 feet of water
on edges. Largemouths are locating tight to structure (docks,
downed trees, and sunken wood) in 10 feet of water or less in weedy
