The first week of June I fished with a great group of guys staying at Moosehorn Lodge. The weather brought everything from hot sun to cold wind and rain. Water temperatures ranged from 51 on the main lake to 65 in shallow bays. Fishing was excellent with bass, pike and walleye mixed on the same spots. We caught a lot of fish on mainland points in 10-14 feet of water and another bite started up in shallow bays in 6-8 feet. These shallow fish are gorging on may-fly nymphs.
Lindy jigs and minnows did most of the damage and some good fish also came on a variety of crankbaits. This report wouldn't be complete without a shout-out to Dave and his treasured 'pink lady' crankbait.
June is a great month for fishing on Lac Seul. 100-200 walleye days are the norm this time of year.
Check back again soon for another report with more pictures.
