Does anyone have any tips or suggestions for fishing walleye in the middle of july? Novice fisherman here, never fished in the bwca. Going to be in lake 1-4, insula, thomas, ima, and finish at moose lake. Possibly going to disappointment lake.

Looking for good spots, lures, baits, techniques. Also wouldn't mind catching some smallmouths.

Thanks!

We fished the BWCA last year on July 13, with a guide. Trolling in 10 to 15 feet of water, with a spinner and two small hooks, using night crawlers. I guess it would qualify as a worm harness. We fished bays with the wind blowing in and deeper water rock piles. Caught walleye and smallmouth during the afternoon and evening. It was a clear full moon, right out of the old Hamm's beer commercials.
