The jumbo perch are starting to show themselves.  The best depth for them is the 7-9 ft range.  I’ve caught quite a few by the Yacht Club and by the outlet by Lake Lawn Lodge.  Either use hellgrammites or small nightcrawlers for the best bite.

Perch fishing has been excellent this last week, with both numbers and large fish being caught.  Most of the good catches have been coming from the west end.  The depth has varied from 15-23 ft.; you need to move around to find an aggressive school of fish.  Like always, the best bait is hellgrammites with […]

Perch and Bluegills are starting to bite in the shallows.  The bluegills and perch are both in about 5-6 ft. of water.  The best bait has been leaf worms or small nightcrawlers.  I fish almost exclusively a small hook and bobber combination.

Northern Pike have been very good.  If you find a school, you will catch a bunch. .  Again, the right size suckers has been the key, 6-7 inches has been the best size.  Any bigger and the smaller fish will take them and run but will ultimately kill the bait.  The best location has been […]
