The best approach is slip bobbering medium suckers or lindy rigging them. The best location has been just west of Willow Point or down by the island.
A lot of success is coming off of nightcrawlers or trolling crank baits. The best color has been fire tiger. Look for the fish by Willow Point or the Oriental boat house.
Bluegill fishing has been slow for me. I haven’t fished for them much. I believe most of the bigger fish are suspended over the main lake basin 10-15 ft down in 40 ft of water. Look for the fish off of the Yacht Club or by Willow Point.
Bluegill fishing has been awesome. It’s the same old story; 18-20 ft of water, use leaf worms fished on either a Willospoon or a Hali jig tipped with wax worms.
The best depth is 22-24 ft of water. My biggest fish of the year was caught last week on a lindy rigged sucker while fishing for northern. The fish was about 26 inches, it was released back into the lake. Good locations are Browns Channel or by the Yacht Club.
They can be caught on Thill slip bobbers with leaf worms or small panfish leeches. You need to keep moving to find the largerfish. My best success has been by Willow Point or by the Oriental boathouse or by the Assembly Park weedline.
The best approach has been lindy rigging large suckers. Currently the pike are preferring the bigger bait. Look for the fish by the gray condos or by the old Boy Scout camp on the west end.
