Perch fishing has been pretty good. The fish have been biting on hellgrammites or ½ of a nightcrawler. The best depth has been 17-19 ft. The best location has been on the west end of the lake by the Island.
Walleye pike fishing for me has been pretty much non-existent. It’s basically just the time of year and where I’ve been fishing. The best approach is trolling deep diving crank baits along the weedline in the pre-dawn hours.
The jumbo perch are starting to show themselves. The best depth for them is the 7-9 ft range. I’ve caught quite a few by the Yacht Club and by the outlet by Lake Lawn Lodge. Either use hellgrammites or small nightcrawlers for the best bite.
