Anglers are reporting walleye coming from the shallow rocky shorelines as well as from the submerged reefs somewhat distant from the bays and islands. A spinner rig tipped with a minnow is working well along the shorelines. jigging with a crawler or leech around the reefs seems to be working well too. Smallmouth bass are hanging in the bays along weedy edges and that is where you will find northern pike too. Smallies are responding to poppers and other surface lures.
