Fishing Report-July 07, 2021

Mid-summer crappie action is in full swing

Crappies can be found schooled in and around heavy shallow weed beds in the 8-12 ft range.  1/16 oz tube jigs worked along the edges of the weeds about half way down to the bottom or just swimming through the tops of the weeds will produce fish.  Mid-day fish can be grouped tight together inside the weeds.  Walleyes are being caught on weed lines and secondary breaks anywhere from 12-25 ft in depth.  Fast moving live bait rigs like a crawler/spinner combo worked along the weed edges will put fish in the boat—along with some really nice bluegills.  Largemouth bass are also schooling on the deep weed line found on points or inside turns in the 15-20 ft ranges.  It’s hard to beat a black 7” Berkley power worm rigged Texas style.
