Cool Last Weekend but Warmer Weather is here!
Another cool weekend over the Memorial holiday but it was hot fishing! Fish are moving out into the deeper water (25-26 feet was great) as the water temp has warmed up to 53 degrees. Most anglers found success using frozen shiners with a variety of jig colors, including pink/gold, orange/gold and even blue/white/pink. A variety of walleye sizes were caught this past week again with many fish between 15” to 17” and 25” to 28”. Pro tip of the week – when you are in the mud, make sure you find the bottom and raise your jig up about a foot. The weather forecast looks fantastic for this week – perfect for a day on the lake!

It was a cool weekend
It was a cool weekend but it looks like the forecast is finally looking warmer this week. The cool weather sure hasn’t kept the walleyes from biting. It has been an active bite and deeper than normal. 22′-26′ along rocky points and in the sand were good this week using a jig and a minnow. Water temp is 51 degrees. Anchored or a slow troll has been working the best. Lots of nice walleyes biting at the hooks. Pike and bass anglers have also had good luck. casting shad raps in shallow weed beds is the best approach.
