Incredible Walleye Fishing
« on: September 10, 2018, 03:23:07 PM »
Incredible week of walleye fishing.  Very strong walleye fishing continues as we transition into fall.  Limits of walleyes with big fish mixed in has been the norm.  Crankbaits and still spinners / crawlers in main basin successful. 32-34 feet of water in Big Traverse Bay holding big numbers of walleyes. Walleyes being caught as shallow as 2' and everywhere in between.  Shiners showing up at mouth of Rainy River with some running up the Rainy River.  Fish being caught all around Big Traverse Bay.
On the Rainy River, sturgeon fishing "keep season" continues until Sept 30. Some walleyes entering river after shiners which are starting to come in.  Some reports of walleyes being caught as shiners trickle in.  Fall is a productive and beautiful time on the Rainy River.

Up at the NW Angle... Strong numbers of walleyes being caught on mud flats with bottom bouncer / crawler harness or on crankbaits on both sides of the border. 22 - 27' is a good start.  Perch schooling on top of reefs.  Muskie activity picking up.  Next full moon, Sep 24.  Sep / Oct Crappie anglers are producing nice black slabs.
