Fishing Report 6-20-16 Flag Island Resort

Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort 6-20-16

Ontario

Saturday was the Musky opener in both Ontario and Minnesota and the water temp at 65 on both sides. A lot of nice fish anywhere from 36- 50 inches being caught with a lot of good action in sandy bays with weed structure and moving to points. Smaller buck tails, jerk baits and other smaller baits proved to be successful.

Walleyes have been in 18-30 feet of water in the mud and transitional areas due to the may fly and other bug hatches. White, gold, and pink lead 1/4 -3/8-ounce jig heads are still successful and always seem to be a good go to. Some guides have found success pulling spinners on the outside of the reefs during this transitional period. The average walleye we saw this week was approximately 20 inches with a 30 and 33 incher among the mix.

Minnesota

The Minnesota Musky opener showed fishermen quite a few muskies, especially around Flag, Brush and Oak Island.

Walleyes have been found in 23-25 feet of water around Stony point and NW point, fishing was tough for a few days but it has definitely turned around. Hammered gold, pink and orange have shown to be successful while pulling spinners and bottom bouncers, crawlers have been more productive but, we still are picking up a few with shiners. The shinners have moved out deeper and are more scattered now moving the fish out to the reefs and away from larger islands. With the may fly and other bug hatches pulling rapalas in deeper water has been successful as the fish have been suspended about 5 feet off the bottom. Saugers have been found more by Kirk and Norman.

Until next week, good luck fishing!

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting 
    • Here is the guy that makes state plaques. have one made for which ever state you took your bird in. http://www.rawescapes.com   He is at the Deer classic every year.
    • welcome to HSO ! 
    • loves the nutty butter suet
    • we will, thx for saving them for us.  
    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
