Some Salmon continue to be caught mixed in with the Lake Trout using medium and magnum size spoons off the boards and downriggers from 40 to 80 foot down in 60 to 120 feet of water. Try adding Tadpole weights with spoons off the Offshore boards to get the lines down deeper.
Steelhead are being taken out on the color lines in 60 to 140 feet of water, try the new Offshore Tadpoles on with your monofilament lines to get them down deeper. The Offshore boards are also working well with 5 and 10 color lead lines with bright color spoons.
Lake Trout fishing is still good North, South and straight out of the harbor using Dodgers and Spin and glows fished right down on the bottom. Try medium and large size spoons off the downriggers as well. Best colors are the glow in the dark, purple, pink, yellow, green, and black colors. Work the 60 to 140 foot of water areas for best results.
Perch fishing is slow, you might try South of the harbor by the cemetery in 25 to 50 feet of water with minnows.
Walleye fishing is picking up, try off the North wall early morning and late evening casting small body baits and spoons. Try the green, purple, silver and blue colors. Also try trolling out in 40 to 60 feet of water North of the harbor with crawler harnesses, small spoons and small body baits.
Some nice Bass and Pike are still being taken inside the harbor and close to shore casting small body baits and spoons.
Keep those lines tight,
