MN Fishing Report 7-10-17

Walleye fishing has been good in the BLA! North Long, Gull, and Whitefish are all producing well. Fish are in their full time summer patterns with the bulk of them being shallow in the weeds. Working the inside and outside of the weed lines with Lindy rigs and redtails, leeches, or crawlers has been working. Along with jigging fatheads on the weed lines or slip floating leeches in the weed pockets. If the weather is calm try trolling spinners over the weeds and cover water to pick off biters. Look to the mid lake structure and fish the wind in 10-18 feet of water.

Bass are biting in the weeds in 8-16 feet of water. Use Berkley 7” Powerworms, drop shots with your favorite plastic, or leeches for live bait. They are fairly concentrated so when you find one there is likely to be many more close by.

For Pike try casting big spinnerbaits tipped with sucker minnows or pulling big sucker minnows on live bait rigs over the weeds.
