Our Walleye Master Guides have mostly been drifting spinners
More great fishing! The majority of the work this past week was in Little Traverse Bay. Our Walleye Master Guides have mostly been drifting spinners and crawlers in 8-23 feet of water. Each day the depth of the best bite has been changing. Others have been trolling with plugs. We are seeing a mix of forage being taken with crayfish and perch currently being staples. Rock areas are holding many fish.
A few helpful reminders for everyone, if you’re feeling sick please do not come. In Minnesota wearing a mask while you are indoors is required. This includes check in and check out, buying items in the store, on your way to and from dining tables, bathroom or the bar. If you have been around others who are sick, please quarantine or get tested before going out. We have had a great season with wonderful memories being made. Don’t let the end of summer coming near give you a false sense of urgency or place a demand on you to come when you shouldn’t. Also, prepare yourself for things taking a little longer than normal. Our staff is doing its best, but things take longer with extra cleaning and social distancing. Dinner reservations are more spread out and even though we have more tables we are not able to use them all. Many have tried to point at the empty tables and say hey, what about that one, but it doesn’t work that way anymore. Also, you need to plan on doing your part by waiting for the fish cleaning house to empty before entering. Plan that you may not be able to just jump right in and start cleaning your catch. This is especially true when all of the guides are cleaning fish, typically 5-6 PM every day.
As the Fonz would say, AAAAY, Cool weather coming this week! More of the sunshine with highs touching 70 and lows at 40’s for the overnights.
