According to our fishing expert John Muhich at Buck’s Hardware, the fish were just as cold as the fishers this past week.
BUT -- the fishing is still going strong. Walleyes are still shallow and so are the Lake trout.
The word about walleyes is to still fish in eight feet of water or less. Some lakes to try include: Poplar, Homer, Gunflint, Devil Track, Lichen and Caribou. Generally minnows (chubs) on a jig are producing as well as bottom bouncers and live rigs.
The Lakers, in water less than 20 feet, are being had with minnows and ciscoes on jigs and spoons. You might want to try a cowbell or a mini cowbell as some are finding fish that way. Lakes to try include: Sag, Loon, Gunflint, and Trout.
Also, we’ve been hearing about a few rainbows being caught on Leo and Trout lakes.
