Perch fishing has been pretty good.  The fish have been biting on hellgrammites or ½ of a nightcrawler.  The best depth has been 17-19 ft.  The best location has been on the west end of the lake by the Island.

Rock Bass and Bluegills are literally everywhere throughout the lake.  The best depth of water has been 8-15 ft. of water.  Nightcrawlers are producing most of the fish.  It isn’t hard to go through 10-12 dozen nightcrawlers in a 4-hour guide party.  I caught most of the larger rock bass west of Linn Pier.

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.

Walleye fishing has been very slow for me.  Last week, I tried trolling and lindy rigging leeches without success.  We did have a bug hatch last week that typically turns them off.  I haven’t had much opportunity to try again, but will check it out in the coming week.  As fall approaches, the walleye fishing […]
