Fish ’em Up High

walleyes

By Charlie MasonNow that we are into the summer months on Lake Erie, often anglers are targeting walleye down in the water column. Makes sense the water is warm and eyes love the cooler temps. Don't get stuck in this mindset though, because if you do, you will be missing out on some actively feeding fish as low as only five foot below the surface of the water.This is one reason I like big blades on Lake Erie, the bigger the show the better.

Post Spawn Bass

Post Spawn Bass

By Kevin DahlkeWaters are reaching warmer temperatures, finally, and that means the spawning beds are vacated and the shallow waters look like land mines have been set off. These times of the season can be a bit tougher for finding actively biting fish, as they are in the transition mode from spring to summer.Waters we were recently fishing, the deeper waters of the lake, are very structure-less to say the least and cruising the shorelines, there is high evidence that the spawn is recently over….

Largemouth bass

By Mike FrischLargemouth bass are numerous in lots of places and they can be caught using a variety of fishing methods. One of the most enjoyable ways is by using a soft hollow body top-water frog.

Among them is Pelican Lake—an 8,000-plus-acre body of water that ranks as a premier multi-species fishing destination.Though largemouths, pike and crappies are on the menu, walleyes account for more angling-hours than all the rest.

Lake of the Woods Report

Casting-Flutterspoon-Pike

Lake of the Woods is a dream destination for any kind of fishing. After spending almost a week in the Sioux Narrows area in Ontario, I have put together a sort of pattern to follow for early summer walleye, pike and smallmouth fishing.With surface water temps in the main lake areas in the upper 50's, the walleyes are just starting to move up onto the 25-35ft water points off of main water islands. Vertical jigging in those areas with Fire-Ball Jigs, Stand-Up Fire-Ball Jigs, and Swivel-Head J…

Been fishing an open Nature Jig with the Northland Impulse Core Swimbait and by working this slowly through the vegetation, t…
