- The season starts in mid-May when schools of walleye are
abundant around the mile roads.
- Early June brings the walleye into Anchor Bay with shallow
water fishing using very light weight and night crawlers
buzzing just above the weed beds. This is also the time when
the Muskie are loaded on the American side of the lake and
encounters happen often.
- The third Saturday in June opens up Small Mouth Bass
fishing. The Small Mouth are on the shallow weed beds in
large numbers. Troll with spot tail minnows and experience
very large bass. I guarantee the biggest you have ever
- Around the 1st of July,the Walleye settle into the middle of the
lake, Canadian and American side. Fish with bottom bouncers
and in-line weights. Small Mouth Bass fishing is still very
good-just in deeper water. This is the time of year that I like,
late afternoon, until dark fishing trips.
- In August, Walleye fishing can be tough. However, some years
they are still biting good. I like to target the mouths of the
channels with suspension baits for a mixed bag of fish
(Walleye, Bass, Muskie, and Pike).
- In September and October it's Perch time! Early morning
fishing with plenty of shiners for bait is the best.
