FISHING REPORTS:

Fishing is a little below average right now. Reason? Water temps. Normally water temps would be in the 80 degree range at this time of year. Even though we had a very late spring, the culprit is the cool nights. 40s and 50s each night just won't allow those water temps to climb. And I see next week the highs will only be in the low 60s for a couple of days. And these temps aren't limited to just the northwoods either. I was on the Madison lakes last Saturday with my grandangels and the water temps were only 74! Now anyone familiar with those lakes knows usually by this time of year you are fishing in a warm tub, icing your catch to make sure it doesn't rot in a half hour. Does this mean you can't catch fish? NEVER!

Right now lake temps are in the 67-71 degree range, clear and stained lakes and flowages alike. One good side effect of the cool water temps is the minimal mayfly hatches. There have been a few small hatches, a good one on the Rainbow, but no majors so far. Weed edges are creeping out to 14-15' depths now. Keep that jig size as small as possible when dragging the leeches and crawlers which are the baits of choice right now. Not too many Northern Pike being boated now but Walleye are still good in low light times or on the flowages. Bass are still going good but the largemouth are really affected by the cool water temps. Musky can be enticed to hit medium to small bucktails ripped over weed patches.

Hey, don't forget to take the family fishing and HAVE FUN! But remember, it's all fun and games 'til someone loses a Walleye!

Hey guys and gals, its been a while. Well, lets get at it. Biggest story right now is minnows are basically passe right now. Crawlers and leeches are the baits of choice. And of course you know I love plastics!

Walleye and Northern Pike and active right now and are hitting crawlers and leeches nicely. Light jigs and green weedlines are key.

Crappies have slowed a little while the gills have picked up. Again, crawlers and leeches in 3-8' of water will bring those bull gills to the boat.

LM Bass should be at the top of your list and the water temps get into the 70s now. They will be everywhere. Remember, they are a surprise stalker so look for places they might hide and attack their prey. Downed logs, dark water that changes to light, lily pads, and big rocks and are great hiding places. Smallies will be in the rocks and roaming the flats also looking for a meal. Low light is the best for them.

The flowages are popping well right now and water levels are good. Local clear water chains are great too but look for those weed edges next to 20-30 feet of water.

One more quickie hint. Wanna find the fish? Used a spinner bait or beetle pin to cover a lot of water and then slow down when you find the fish.

Hey, don't forget to take the family fishing and HAVE FUN! But remember, It's all fun and games 'till someone loses a Walleye!
