Fishing Report:

Weather wise, this has been a better week for people to enjoy time on the lake. Water temperatures are in the mid 70 degree range and the fishing has been decent also. Walleye action has been somewhat slow during the daylight hours, but the early morning and late evening anglers are having the best luck. Jig and minnow combinations has produced and a few have been taken on crawler or leech combinations also.

The crappie bite has been good, with bass, bluegills, northern pike and musky all being caught. Most of the action has been during the early morning hours or late in the evening with only a little mid-day activity taking place. A lot of the fish are coming by working submerged weeds and rocks/gravel area in 12 to 16 feet of water. Slip bobbers rigs baited with crappie minnow or small tube jig are working well for panfish. 1/8th ounce jigs tipped with flathead minnow or a twister tail under a bobber is working for the walleye and bass, as is jigging the same combination right on the bottom without a bobber.

Musky and northern pike are being caught on rapidly retrieved bucktails and top water baits. Rapid retrieve will trigger the most aggressive fish. The musky and northern are holding within heavy weeds and cover in shallow to mid-depth water so fish those areas.
