A jig and minnow is producing walleyes in 18 to 25 feet at Seagull Lake and Lake Saganaga. You’ll also catch walleyes with Rapalas at Devil Track Lake in eight to 12 feet or with leeches at Two Island Lake in 12 to 15 feet. Rainbow trout are taking crawlers in 12 to 15 feet at Trout Lake or in 18 to 22 feet at Leo Lake and Kimball Lake. Bucktail jigs or spoons are triggering lake trout over 65 to 80 feet on Greenwood Lake or over 45 feet at Saganaga. Coho salmon are being found in less than 120 feet, as are lake trout over 200 to 250 feet in front of the Grand Marais Harbor on Lake Superior. Eight to 10 bears were registered as of Tuesday morning, but the opening day wind made for tough hunting.

The deep water near Taylors Falls on the St. Croix River is producing walleyes and smallmouth bass on live bait or crankbaits. Crappies are suspended and hitting minnows over the deep holes of West Rush Lake.
