The first couple weeks of the season flew by up here on Lac Seul. We started with summer weather in May and then June kicked off with a big cold front. The warm spring had the fish very active and spread out almost everywhere you tried. Fishing was great for walleye, pike and bass. The cold front dropped temperatures over 10-15 degrees and the fishing slowed down a bit, especially in the shallows.
The cold front is over and the forecast looks good going into June. The countdown to muskie season is definitely on now!
