Fishing Report

Fall is on the way!

But the summer fishing action remains steady on all area lakes—especially for walleye.

walleyes 2 guys summer

Look for the fish in the 20-30 ft range chasing schools of bait fish.  Verticle baits like a perch colored #5 Jiggin’Rap is catching the fish near the bottom.

Trolling a JB Lures spinner (green/gold/glow) tipped with a small sucker minnow ill also pick up these deeper walleyes.

The weed flats on most lakes are spitting up nice northern pike by trolling big spinner baits like a Northland Reed Runner over the tops of the weed beds in 6-10 ft of water.

The big bluegills are still hanging around the deep weed edges in the 12-19 ft range and can be caught using a lindy rig tipped with a leech or part of a night crawler.

Lotsa Fish! Lotsa Fun!
