Fishing has been steady with the Crappies moving in to the deeper holes in most area lakes. Look for suspended fish anywhere from 20-30 feet down over 35-45 of bottom depth. Using 2 lines, have a Crappie minnow on a glow jig and your second line rigged with a small jig tipped with a wax worm.
Northern Pike are still cruising shallow weed beds as the oxygen levels seem to be maintaining. Weed flats in the 7-12’range. Look for cabbage weed. Suspend a medium sized shiner about 2 ft off of the bottom. Put the minnow on a number 2 chartreuse hook to help attract the fish.
Walleyes are using deep weed lines in the 12-18’ range feeding primarily at dawn/dusk. Set a tip up rigged with a shiner minnow on a number 2 glow hook while using a gold/perch colored jigging spoon tipped with a small minnow head on another rod. Look for deep sunken islands for a potential day time walleye bite and stick to the jigging spoon only while covering water with multiple holes.
Good Luck out there and be safe. Lotsa Fish! Lotsa Fun!-Captain Josh Hagemeister
