We are pleased to announce that Rapala is supporting the 2016 Kenora Walleye Open! All tournament anglers will receive Rapala branded goodies in their bags when they sign in at the rules meeting. Every bag will contain a spool of Sufix fishing line and a Rapala Crank Bait!
The weather has been pretty bad for the last couple days. Much of the area has received big rain fall and the lake is up about 6 inches over the last week.
The water temps have been dropping as a result and are down to 63 degrees today.
The mayfly hatch started a few days ago, that could help or hurt your catch depending on how your strategy is :)
The extended forecast looks good for the coming week, can't wait!
The 2016 Kenora Walleye Open, presented by Lund Boats is sold out! A full field of 130 teams will compete in just 10 days!
