he best Walleye bite has been at night. Most of the fish are coming out of 5 ft of water near the main lake points. Such as, the Yacht Club, Willow Point and the Village Supper Club.
The best game fish bite has been the largemouth bass, although this bite is just starting. The best success has been around boat docks and shallow water with sand bottoms. The fish have started to spawn. I prefer using spider grubs or white spinner baits. This past week, the best action was when the winds […]
Bluegills are biting in the 12-13 ft depth range. The best location is by Browns Channel or in front of Township Park.
Yellow Perch fishing has been fantastic on the west end by the Viewcrest Bay. You want to anchor the boat in 20-22 ft of water. They are biting on slip bobbers with hellgrammites. Hellgrammites are outfishing any other bait about 5 to 1.
Northern pike action has been excellent due to the colder water temperatures. Most of the fish can be caught in 7-10 ft of water. Look for the fish in Browns Channel or in Viewcrest Bay.
With the cooler water temperatures, the walleye are throughout the water column. I’ve caught fish as shallow as 3 ft and as deep as 23 ft. Some of the fish I’ve caught have been on nightcrawlers and some have come off of fathead minnows.
Crappie fishing has been good in the mid-range weeds. You want to fish them in 6-10 ft of water. The best location is by Browns Channel. You want to look for scattered weeds. With the water clarity, you need to make long casts so you don’t spook the fish. Small fathead minnows on bobbers have […]
Walleye pike are off the main lake points in 22-24 ft of water. They can be caught on lindy rigged nightcrawlers with a 24-30 inch leader. I prefer using a painted hook on my lindy rig in either pink or chartreuse. As the water cools, the fish will switch to an all fat head minnow […]
