Latest Fishing Report

Round Lake: Bass fishing was good on docks and shallow weed beds, with small pike and walleye going okay in 12-14 feet of water.

Edward Lake: There was still some bass on beds, but most of the bass and small pike, were coming from 8-10 feet of cabbage. Good walleye bite. 12-15 feet trolling raps and live bait: shiners and leeches.

Lions Whitefish Chain Tournament: With lots of rain and cool temps, the water temp ranged from 65 to 72 degrees. Fishing was a little tough, with most bass coming from 10-12 feet. The Romine/Goss team only had 10 pounds of bass, which seemed to be pretty average. Best bag of bass was 16 pounds. Northern Pike were going good, but lots and lots under the 20inch minimum weigh in rule. 3 of the biggest Pike weighed, averaged over 10 pounds. Most of the pike came from the 12-14 cabbage. Walleyes weren't allowed to be weighed in this year, but we sure heard stories of some nice ones caught by quite a few teams.

The Romine/Goss team had a nice pike, and ended up placing third this year. Nice job guys! Check out the video below.

The fish are also biting north of the border. Matt Werneke caught and released this 42 inch 25 pound pike using 6 test line with a jig and minnow, no leader. It took Matt 25 minutes to get it in the net, and it took line out about 8 times before landing it. He caught it off the dock at Wiley Point Lodge on Lake of the Woods. Not a bad fish, eh?

What a monster fish Matt. I'd love to hear the story of catching this.
