    I was up on Birch this past weekend. Water temps in the low 60’s walleyes were consistently in 13-16 feet, sand bottom was best in the evening. Gold or chartreuse jig and a minnow jigged or pitched. We stayed at Timber Bay Lodge.

    I was told White Iron had a similar bite.

    I was up from 5/28-6/6, perks of working remote, and fished almost every morning before work and then the evenings. Fishing was best in the early morning, from about 6-9am. Then right at sundown and there after. In the morning, dragging a jig and minnow or a lindy with a leech worked best. Lots of small fish coming on the leech and they were just nipping at it. Males were still in the points and shorelines of bays/river entrances. I caught them in the morning in 12FOW or less. Evenings if I got out early I would hit the deeper water right next to islands or the shallows. 17-20FOW, around humps or saddles. Caught a nice 26inch 45 min after sundown in 8ft on a windblown shoreline, dragging a jig and leech. Biggest takeaway, follow the wind. Watch the wind direction days prior and day of and pick the best shorelines that the wind has pounded, the fish will be there!

    Nick did you get this 26″ on Fall? I saw you mentioned you stayed on fall. If yes that is like a 30″ on most lakes as far as equivalency. Fall is not great and I don’t know if this has changed -but they stopped stocking it at one point.

    This wasn’t on Fall lake, I wont give up the lake our cabins on but there are some dandy fish out there. Fall lake is mainly a meat run, lots of smaller fish and good crappies out there.

    Agreed, if your not on Vermilion or Birch, then a 25+ inch fish is a really nice one in my book.

    Fished this past weekend just south of Ely and the fishing was easyyy. Using the mapping feature on my bird I was able to find a sunken rock hump that topped out around 7ft and had 11-13ft of sand bottom and rock around it with a drop down into 15-20 ft towards main lake basin. Pulled a silver/blue spinner and a leech mainly in the 11-13ft at 1.1 mph. Graphed fish a foot off bottom and there was a bite in every direction of the pass. Caught my limit of nice eater males Friday evening and then another limit Saturday but all were released. Looking forward to fall cast n blast weekends. Fishing should be good and the leaves should turn early for a good start tog rouse season!

    Good luck!

    Nice! You will be all over the map! If you make it to Kab, post a report for us! We did Kab and Nam for fishing opener and it was brutal, fishing wise.

    Yep, I’ll post a report. My cousin got up there (Kab) today so I should have some good Intel on where to fish (or not to fish lol)

    Made it up to Whiteface around 10am and looked for submerged weeds, but I couldn’t find any. So I decided to hit some windblown shorelines dropping into deep water. This produced a few fish, but just little cigars. Tried some of the larger mid-lake structure but these didn’t yield results either.

    Later in the afternoon I hit a rock bar and the walleyes were there in real good numbers. The size wasn’t great, but I did muster a limit of 13.5″ to 14.5″ fish. Fish were holding in the 6ft to 8ft range and I got them using an 1/8oz orange (or pink) jig tipped with a crawler chunk.

    Off to Kab/Nam tomorrow to see what we can do there.

    Interesting report on Whiteface! lots of small guys in there I have heard. Too bad no bigger ones to report. Good luck on Kab!
