Minnesota Fishing Report

Walleyes are scattered, coming from the top of the weeds, from the 15-20 foot edges, and from the deep waters at mid-lake structure. Spinner rigs and live bait rigs with leeches & crawlers are producing the majority of fish. Panfish are active in the weed beds. Some muskie anglers are having success on Big Detroit, Sallie and Pelican lakes. Most of these anglers are casting baits, with very few trolling plugs. There have also been reports of nice rainbow trout pulled from Bad Medicine Lake by anglers trolling spinners over suspended fish. Please remember that due to warm summer water and air temperatures, catch and release fish will need to be returned to the water as quickly as possible.
