  1. Hello everyone! It has been a great year of fishing so far and many beautiful fish are being caught everyday. In Minnesota working rock reefs and points in the morning and evening hours and then moving to deeper areas off of structure during mid day has been best. Gravel bars, humps and deep mud areas have all been producing fish as well. The Best depth has been 13-20 feet in the mornings and evenings and 20-30 during mid day. The best tactic has been using a jigging rod with a lindy flyer, buckshot, rippin rap, charmer or flutter spoon tipped with a minnow head or tail. Live minnows under a bobber have worked as well. Over on the Canadian side the Crappie bite has been good in all north and east spots. A tungsten jig with a plastic and waxy has been the best combo. 30 feet for the crappies and 25 or deeper for the walleyes has been the best. For the walleyes a weasel, lindy flyer or charmer has been the best. There is a lot of hard packed snow on the lake and it is suggested to have scrapers for snowmobiles, many snowmobiles were overheating last week. Over night we got a few inches of snow which should help the situation. We'd love to see you soon! Until next week, good luck fishing!

  2. 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! Dan Schmidt and Jeremy Glessing, Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011
