Bluegill fishing remains excellent. The best depth has been 20-25 ft of water. The best bait has been small pieces of nightcrawler or red worms. The best success has come straight lining beneath the boat and slowly drifting. I’ve been fishing them by Elgin Club and by Gage Marine.
Bluegills have moved deep. They are in 16-18 ft of water. The best location has been by Elgin Club or off the weed edge in Williams Bay. The best approach is straight lining leaf worms about 1 ft off bottom. You need to have calm winds for this to be effective.
Walleye fishing has been very good at night. Last week, some real hogs were caught. The best time to fish for them is midnight to 3 a.m.
Panfish have been biting well. You will have to sort through a bunch of fish to catch the ones with decent size. The bigger fish seem to come from deeper water, the 15-18 ft. range.
Walleye action has been okay. All the fish are being caught at night. Most are being taken while trolling or by lindy rigging jumbo leeches. The best time to catch the fish is between 11 pm and 3:30 am.
Walleye Pike are biting at night on the nights where the wind is blowing. If the wind isn’t blowing, fishing has been very slow.
Some crappies are being found by Conference Point on the west side amongst the sail boats suspended in 20 ft of water about 10 ft. down. You can find them on your depth finder. Small jigs and twister tails are a good bet.
Rock Bass and Bluegills are still being caught all over the lake. Nightcrawlers fished on the split shot rig produce most of the action. The best depth has been 8-15 ft. of water. My best location has been by Coleman’s Point drifting to Knollwood.
