The early summer walleye bite continues to be hot! We went out for a few hours in the morning on Thursday before the start of the Canada Day long weekend and took the opportunity to fish in what is normally a high traffic area.
Boats were absent from the water for the most part as the June tourists were on their way home and the July tourists had not yet arrived. Cottagers had not yet arrived for the long weekend either so we basically had the water to ourselves. It was great!
The action was pretty constant and we hardly noticed the rain as we were busy hauling up walleye with average size being in the 20 to 24 inch range.
The bigger walleye seemed to be feeding on the smaller ones as we had a 22 inch walleye cough up a 10 incher. We did manage a couple of eaters for supper too!
The biggest fish of the morning was this 27 inch golden beauty.
Fishing an area where the boat high traffic is normally high during a period of low traffic certainly paid off for us.
