Dave Duwe Fishing Guide

Smallmouth bass have been caught in 22-24 ft of water.  The best bait is lindy rigged nightcrawlers.  The leader length should be 18-24 inches fished behind an 1/8 oz or ¼ oz walking sinker depending on the wind.

Northern Pike fishing is starting to improve with the warming water. The fish are associating to the weed line in 18-22 ft of water.
