The boys tied into a couple more muskies on their trip and some nice pike too.
Here's Jake with his first of the season.
The walleye bite continues to be strong on eastern Lac Seul. For the most part, I'm fishing within a few miles of Bear Narrows. As the walleye filter down from spawning areas they pass through this area on their way to the main lake basin. A prolonged east wind over the last couple of weeks has really helped to stack the fish up, especially on spots with an eastern exposure.
The best depths vary from day-to-day, but in general 15-feet is a good bet at this time of year. When conditions are warm, sunny and calm I'm still finding the fish will pulse shallow into bays to feed on mayfly nymphs. Overcast, with a good chop puts the deeper water bite into high gear. I've been checking islands and humps in the main lake basins but only with limited success so far. One thing is for sure, they're on their way and it won't be long until the summer structure is going strong.
