Sportsman’s Lodge South End Fishing Report

Changing Bait Is The Key!

Our guides are still having success jigging in the mud, about 30-34 feet of water. The key has been changing up the bait. Walleyes have been biting on orange/gold, purple, pink/white/gold rattle jigs tipped with either a leech or a frozen shiner. If one isn’t working, try the other. It can make a difference!  The water temp has warmed up to about 64 degrees and many slot fish are being caught. Pro tip of the week – Fish are staying tight to the bottom so raise your jig up about a foot.

Join us for the 4th of July
Lots of events, activies, great fishing, boating and relaxing awaits you!
