The July bite is heating up!


Waters are beginning to clear up in the islands and fishing is improving as well. With the mayfly hatch, the windblown shorelines will be holding fish as well as the mud adjacent to rock reefs and structures. Jigging around these structures is still producing good fish. Pink, gold and chartreuse have all produced. Drifting spinners has been very good. Hammered gold and orange have been the go to colors. There has been no front runner in bait choice; crawlers and leeches both will produce.


The muskie bite is heating up! A fast moving bucktail at shallow weed beds and rock points and structures is working well.  Cover water and contact as many fish as possible! Check out this whopper!


Good Luck and Happy 4th of July Week!
