Where are the fish biting?


While fishing with Captain Jerry Skarupa aboard Secret Lures, these friends caught their limit of salmon and two nice lake trout. Happily showing off the catch of the day are Paul Anderson of Grand Marais, Jan Karnas of Rochester, MN and Dan Strootman of Sunburg, MN.

Leeches are coming to an end as far as supply goes so you’re going to have to use crawlers and minnows for bait. The walleyes seem to be doing pretty well up at Seagull Lake as they are hitting in 12 to 18 feet along the weed edges and 20 to 30 off the rocks with jigs and crawlers and minnows being the bait of choice. Trolling with crank baits also works.


Nicolas and Anthony Berscheit pulled in a 6-pounder and an 18-pounder. They caught the big lake trout while fishing with their dad and uncle on a Halsnoy Fish Company Charter with Captain Dale Tormondsen of Tofte.

Photo by Dale Tormondsen Two Island Lake is reporting walleye action in 8 to 15 feet jigging with minnows. The smallies are doing pretty well too so you might want to bring some crawlers along. Smallmouth bass were in 10 to 15 feet of water.

Round Lake had action in 17 to 25 feet trolling with live rigs and cranks. The northerns were also very active trolling with spoons. Lake trout in Duncan and Daniels were going in 45 to 60 feet of water with the fish suspended. Spoons and jigs tipped with minnows and ciscoes worked pretty well.

Greenwood Lake had fish down deep from 60 to 80 feet. The fish were suspended there as well. Partridge Lake is another one to try as the fish were in 50 to 60 feet of water. Spoons with ciscoes were the bait of choice. Rainbows in Kimball and Trout lakes finally picked up a bit so bring your jigs and trolling gear to pick up a few.
