    Default Fishing Report

    Well the weather has not affected the fishing. The fish are still biting but you are really working for the fish you get. Water temps have been fluctuating as well with the changes in weather, but should start to level as we have some very stable weather moving in.

    Walleye have been mostly on the weed edges we are still catching so nice fish. Very short casts with a 1/16 or 1/32 oz jig with a minnow or leech have worked the best. These fish are not hitting the jig hard most times the pickups have been light where they just start swimming with the minnow out of the weeds and toward the boat so watching the line is very important. Early morning and late evenings have been the best.

    Muskie/Pike action look for fish to in and around weed edges in 7-12 feet of water. Small bucktails (black with orange blade the old standby and jerkbaits have been the most productive. Most fish being taken are of average size. The one posted above was on the first cast of the evening.

    Bass are hitting in and around the dock and shallow rock humps on most lakes. Rock humps topping out around the 12-14 foot mark have been the best. Rubber worms and tubes would be the go to bait of choice.

    Crappies have been slow with the occasional fish still being taken on a jig and minnow while fishing walleyes over cabbage weeds. As the water temps continue to raise look for these fish to make a change over to plastic tubes and mini mites.

    Perch have been hitting well in the weeds and some nice perch on some days. Minnows or small pieces of night crawler have been the best in taking these fish.

    Good luck this weekend as fishing should pick up and be good. Warmer temps will trigger these fish to start feeding again. Good Luck Jason Pertile
