MN Fishing Report 8-9-17

We are finally starting to see some walleyes push out to a little deeper water using our Humminbird units. The deep weed lines in 15-22 feet seem to be the best right now with some fish coming from as deep as 30 feet on some days. Mid lake humps and structure are holding fish along with shoreline points with weeds and deep water near by. Lindy rigs with chubs, jigs with fatheads, slip floats with leeches, pulling leadcore, or jigging raps are all producing fish and all worth trying. North Long and The Whitefish Chain have had the best bites recently. Remember to pay attention to the wind direction.

Bass are biting in many ways. Top water in the pads with frogs, or fishing them under docks or on deep weed lines with jig worms. You can also choose to go with live bait and rig sucker minnows on deep weed edges.

For Pike try trolling or casting big spinnerbaits tipped with sucker minnows.

Good Luck,
