Fishing Report
 
South end
Excellent walleye action continues along the south shore.
Walleyes & sauger limits in Four Mile Bay, Lighthouse gap, Morris Point gap, and along the south shore of the lake.
The go-to presentation is anchored up and jigging with a jig and minnow.
Pink and gold strong colors.
Some anglers were trolling crankbaits and also doing well.
Reports of fish in varying depths, but 15-25′ holding good fish.
 
Rainy River
Good numbers of walleyes still in the river and some nice fish being caught.
Bright jigs and frozen shiner hard to beat.
Strong current in the river, thus heavier jigs necessary.

NW Angle
Anglers were catching nice walleyes as the water warms.
Reports of nice fish coming from shoreline structure and areas with current.
Most anglers using jig and minnow.
Evening bite continues strong.
