Overall fishing has remained very good even with the hot temperatures. Boat traffic continues to be the most difficult part of a fishing day.
Northern Pike fishing has been excellent. The fish are in 18-23 ft of water right off the weed edge. They can be caught lindy rigging suckers or speed trolling spoon plugs. The larger fish have been coming off of the larger suckers. The best locations have been by Willow point or by the gray condos.
Walleye fishing has been almost non-existent. I haven’t caught a walleye in several trips out. I haven’t even heard of anyone having success with walleyes lately.
Crappie fishing has been good. The fish are in the medium depth of weeds in 12-14 ft of water. They ca be caught on small fat head minnows or casting small plastics. The best color plastics have been purple or yellow for me. Some good success has come in front of the Village Supper Club or by Browns channel.
Perch fishing has been all right. The fish are in 12-15 ft weeds. They can be caught on green hellgrammites or night crawler pieces. The best location is by the west end island or by the Yacht Club point.
Largemouth bass are on the deep weed line. They can be caught casting deep diving crank baits or by fishing night crawlers. I caught several bass last week over 18 inches and one close to 6 lbs. The best location is by the gray condos or by the Village Supper Club.
Good luck and I hope to see you on the water. For guide parties, please call Dave Duwe at 608-883-2050
