Got back late last night after fishing Thursday thru Sunday morning. Tough fishing and, at times, conditions but managed to bring home one fish short of full walleye limits for four guys with 16 perch as well. Would have been full limits (and even more perch) but we opted for a second meal of fish Saturday night.


Marked and caught most of our fish in 22-25' I would say, but caught fish as shallow as 15' a couple times. Thursday and Friday were pretty windy and couldn't really find a consistent bite. Wind was pretty much nonexistent Saturday so we made a longer run West and found better numbers and size. Picked up a 21", 21.5", and 22.5" all off the same spot Saturday afternoon, that was the extent of the size we found. Had to weed through a lot of small fish for the unders.



We tried leeches, minnows, and crawlers and didn't think any of them outfished the rest. Had pretty good luck with crawlers, slow death, and smile blades when we caught the most fish on Saturday.

Thanks for the update! Glad you were able to find enough to bring home nearly a limit and still have a couple meals of fish while you were there.

Question Update?

We are headed up to Mylie's next weekend and plan to primarily fish the Miles Bay and Obabikon areas but we are also considering exploring the Sabaskong area some this year. Would anyone care to offer any updates on fishing conditions? We typically target walleye but will also go after pike and smallmouth. I'm not expecting anyone to offer up any hot spots but depth, presentation, structure type, bait etc. would be much appreciated. Has the algae bloom happened yet?

Many thanks!

The bloom is very thick in our area right now. Most of the guides are heading west and southwest to find cleaner water. Miles Bay is green too, but it is big enough that wind is the key. So, if we get a wind out of the west, don't fish the east side of Miles. It will all have blown to that side.

Walleye are on rock points and humps in 18-24 feet of water. We've just been using jigs and minnows.

Have a great trip! Justin is a heck of a host!

Thanks for the info Jared. I knew we were going to be flirting with the bloom when I booked that week but from what I have read, it's not a deal breaker. Although, hearing that your guides are making sure they avoid it is a little concerning. Yep, Justin always takes good care of us when we are there.

I hope your season is going well!

Thanks again,

The guides avoid it more for preference than they do because they dont' catch fish in it. Thick green stuff just isn't as pretty to look at. Musky fishermen do go look for clearer water. That's the nice thing about having such an expansive lake. You can always go for a 10-15 minute boat ride, and find completely new water.

The bloom does nothing to affect fishing. Although I might add that follows are hard to detect follows with a big bloom. The wind moves the bloom around a lot. If you donít like it, fish on the side away from the bloom.

How was the trip last week? Hope you did well.
What can/should we expect in 2 weeks? Is the crappie bite starting yet, or that still a few weeks out yet? Are the big perch still roaming around? Where have they come from? We used to catch a few here and there, but now it seems like they are everywhere.

Up just east of Morson now. We're on the west side of Blueberry. Fishing is slow. We went out west of town yesterday and all the way out to Tods Island. No keeper walleye for us. Moved one musky. Talked to a couple guys that boated 2 muskies yesterday. Said it was slow overall as well. We've been jigging for walleyes. Might try spinners today.

Bummer. Just a little further west of Tods is the only area we found decent size in early July. Hopefully it gets better, we will be up there September 7-9 hopefully.
