Walleye fishing is starting to pick up. The fish are starting to position on the weed breaks in 15-20 ft. of water. The best bait has been nightcrawlers. I’ve tried leeches several times but haven’t had any luck with them.
The best location is under the bridge on the inlet. For the deep weedline fish, try casting nightcrawlers fished on a split shot rig. Some of the bass I caught last week were 17-18 inches. Good locations are by the Oriental boathouse or on the west end by the island. Bluegill fishing remains awesome. There are […]
he best Walleye bite has been at night. Most of the fish are coming out of 5 ft of water near the main lake points. Such as, the Yacht Club, Willow Point and the Village Supper Club.
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.
Bluegills are biting in the 12-13 ft depth range. The best location is by Browns Channel or in front of Township Park.
Largemouth bass are starting to make nests and begin spawning. Sight fishermen are having the best success. Look for them in 2-3 ft. of water, associating with hard sand. The tricky part is trying to present a bait without getting the green slime on it. I prefer fishing a Texas rigged tube bait, either chartreuse/pepper […]
As May turns to June the fish will slowly move slightly deeper as the water warms and the weeds grow. It makes trolling stickbaits impossible due to the thick tall weeds in the water column. When this happens, the technique will change from trolling to slip-bobbers and jig fishing. When this happens, it becomes an […]
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 […]
