Walleyes, northern pike, muskies and panfish will all gather on the edge of the weeds during the day, and sometimes the panfish will suspend out away from the weeds. You can often see them dimpling the surface as they feed on bugs that are on the surface.

Lake Vermilion:

 Most walleye anglers are focusing their efforts around the Frazier Bay area using nightcrawlers with slipbobbers at around 10 feet off weed edges. Muskie action has been outstanding around the Vermilion Dam area using topwater baits. Bass and bluegills are at shallow depths using worms or leeches. The Vermilion and Little Fork rivers also are producing good walleye and bass action using leeches or crawlers on weed edges.

Eagle River

SMALLMOUTH BASS: Fish hardbottom areas, such as rock piles, and off of break edges in 20 feet of water or less. Use a plastic tube or crawfish, Senko rigged wacky, a small Mepps spinner, or a jig and a minnow or leech. All day action and the bite is good to excellent.

Thousand Islands

Thousand Islands (St. Lawrence River) : "A more picturesque fishing destination you will not find. It seems for each of the islands poking out of his section of the St. Lawrence, a dozen 5-pound smallies exist. It took 50-10 to win a September BFL event here, and you had to average more than 18 pounds over the two days to be in the Top 10. And this is more than a trophy fishery, as you will likely be tired of setting the hook and fighting better-than-average brown bass at the end of the fishing day."

The best walleye fishing has been in Canadian waters around Pelee and Middle islands. Walleye are being caught west and north of West Sister Island, west of West Reef, north of B Can on the Camp Perry Firing Range, north of Niagara Reef and around Gull and Kelleys Island shoals.
The perch fishing has been poor to fair, with some perch caught between Kelleys Island and the Marblehead Lighthouse and around Lucys Point on the northeast corner of Middle Bass Island.

Wiper have been caught in the Elks Bay just south of the boat ramp as well as just east of the swim beach. Walleye are being caught near the inlet canal as well as up the Darby Arm, just North of Darby Point. Boat fishermen have caught trout near the dam and the south boat ramp along with some crappie and wiper. The catfish have been caught at the West Trailhead and at the Inlet Canal. The road to the south boat ramp and ski beach is closed at this time due to flooding.
