Reeling in fish
The bite in the islands this week has been great! Lots of nice walleyes, saugers, crappies, pike, bass and muskies have been reeled in.  Jigging with a minnow in 10’-15’ and 22’-26’ has been good for walleyes and saugers around shore lines.  Soldier’s Point and McPherson Island have been notable hot spots.  Crappies have been found in 24’-30’ using smaller jigs with a minnow in areas with structure but we have also seen plenty caught were the walleyes are targeted too.  Bass, pike and muskie fishing has been best trolling using spinner or jerk baits around points and areas with current.  Casting around rocks has been successful too.
