Sweet Spots: Four-Mile Bay, Pine Island, and Elm Point
What's Hot: Rapalas, Shad Raps, and ThunderSticks
Local Advice: For large pike in the winter, Heinrich suggests using "ciscoes from 8 to 12 inches long, rigged on a tip-up. You'll target bigger northerns, and you can eat the bait you don't use."
Prime Time: Late March to mid-April for walleyes in the Rainy River. March through June for pike
