The flats are a few miles straight east of Madeline. Its a large area of 100 foot deep water and no structure. Lakers and occasional browN trout hand around there all summer.

Where are the flats? Is it just past Outer Island?
we will be up that way October 2-4 and I was curious on whether or not there is much of a smallie bite from shore this time of year and where some easy access spots are? thanks in advance
Had a decent weekend. Went today and dead sea.. word at the docks says 58° surface temps. Everyone I spoke to went beyond south channel to flats.
Anybody doing any smallmouth fishing?
Kringle - i catch everything trolling around 2.5mph. Which is as slow as my motor will troll. Now until freeze up is the best time fir trolling with planer boards and you'll catch salmon, brown, steelhead, splake, lakers and an occasional brooky.
I'm curious to see what speeds people troll. I try different speeds all the time, but I'm wondering if I would have better luck if I knew what speeds to run for certain species. I had some luck this summer in the South Channel for lake trout, pulling spoons 2.4-2.7. What speeds work best for salmon, and browns?
COMING UP THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 3 rd.To do some walleye fishing with my Grandsons.. Would appreciate any info on what to use & where to go...
Thank You in advance...
the down rigger that brought the fish in was about 3-5’ from bottom, the other one I would run suspended down from 20-60’ and that one never caught a fish.
How deep were your rigger lines set?
