Fishing Report May 25, 2021

The walleye fishing has really ramped up throughout the area thanks to the warm weather

Look for them in shallow water in the 6-12 ft range.  Cast and snap jig 1/8 oz jigs along the sand/gravel patches found near shore or shoreline related flats—especially if there is a little wind blowing in and there are weeds starting to grow.  Tip the jig with a plastic swim bait or a real spot tail shiner. Crappies are invading the shallows getting ready to spawn—some are starting!.  Look for submerged cover near shore where a sand spawning bed can be made in the 3-5 ft range.  Newly growing bull rush beds are great spots!  Anchor far from the fish and cast a bobber minnow combo to the fish.  Bass are also prepping for the spawn, but be sure to release all Bass to protect the resource—eat other kinds of fish!

Lotsa Fish! Lotsa Fun!
