Perch fishing has been excellent this last week, with both numbers and large fish being caught. Most of the good catches have been coming from the west end. The depth has varied from 15-23 ft.; you need to move around to find an aggressive school of fish. Like always, the best bait is hellgrammites with […]
Largemouth bass are biting very well. There are two patterns that are working. Dock fisherman are having good success. I have been getting large fish on the deep weed lines in about 16-18 ft. of water. I have been using a lindy rigged nightcrawler. The leader length varies, however I usually use a 18-24 inch […]
Northern pike are on the weed lines. They are starting to move into the deeper water. By the end of this week they should be easily caught by lindy rigs.
Northern Pike have finally started to bite on the outside weed edge. I’ve been catching my fish on lindy rigged suckers. The best depth for me has been 20-26 ft of water. I’ve been fishing from the Village Supper Club point to the Oriental boathouse. The size is still a bit small, the biggest fish […]
Walleye fishing has been hit or miss. The most consistent method has been fishing leeches right along the weed line in 12-15 ft. of water. I’ve been using small painted hooks and 1/8 oz walking sinkers.
Perch and Bluegills are starting to bite in the shallows. The bluegills and perch are both in about 5-6 ft. of water. The best bait has been leaf worms or small nightcrawlers. I fish almost exclusively a small hook and bobber combination.
Crappies are prevalent all over the lake. Pretty much every spot I’ve tried I’ve found fish. The only problem is that most of the fish I’ve been catching are in the 6-7 inch range so you need to do a lot of sorting to catch a good meal.
Largemouth bass are starting to make nests and begin spawning. Sight fishermen are having the best success. Look for them in 2-3 ft. of water, associating with hard sand. The tricky part is trying to present a bait without getting the green slime on it. I prefer fishing a Texas rigged tube bait, either chartreuse/pepper […]
