Fall is an awesome time to catch some of the biggest crappies of the year. Give fall crappie fishing a try, you will not be disappointed. With crappies in big schools remember to take a few and release the rest to preserve the resource.
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.
Walleyes are still very scarce. I’ve trolled 3-4 hours in the last few weeks without any success. That bite is either hit or miss. Troll perch colored Bandit Lures or 300 series Bandit bass crankbaits when trying for them for the best chance of success.
Some of the best reports for large fish were trolling stick baits, like Walleye Bandits and Rapala Husky Jerks in 6-8 ft of water. The best time is at night from about 3-5 a.m. Check locations such as Willow Point, the Yacht Club point and Browns Channel.
Crappie fishing is still very productive. They are again in the weeds in 8-14 ft. of water. Most of the limits are being taken at night, which makes it tough in the cool weather. Some good locations are the Village Supper Club and in front of Assembly Park. The best success is produced on small […]
Crappie fishing remains very consistent. The fish are suspended over the main lake basin 8-10 ft down in 30 ft of water. The best approach is casting small plastics and letting them sink 5-10 seconds and slowly reeling them back to the boat. The best location has been by Willow Point or by the orange […]
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 […]
Bluegill fishing has been a little slow for me. One day I’ll find them in 13-14 ft of water and the next day they’re gone. Most of the success has come off of a single hook split shot rig fished straight beneath the boat, tipped with a leaf worm. The best success I’ve had has […]
