Report from the Dock

The weather has been unusually nice throughout the past week, but the number of people fishing continues to drop. The diehard walleye and muskie anglers are going out and they are experiencing decent success with few other anglers around them. Walleyes are mainly being taken with minnows or horizontal baits such as Jiggin’ Raps on deep structure or shallower, shoreline areas – just depends on the lake. The state’s muskie bite continues to be a bit off, but water temperatures remain relatively warm across the state, so that likely is limiting muskie activity. Panfish and bass fishing reports were almost nonexistent this week.

Fishing activity has been limited, but a few walleyes are being taken with minnows in Agency Bay, Walker Bay, and on main lake structure in 14 to 18 feet. There has been a few muskie anglers out, but the bite has been slow. Most anglers are working a mixture of weed and rock with large sucker minnows in less than 12 feet. Duck hunters aren’t seeing much for new birds, grouse hunting remains decent, and most people have continued to prepare for the deer season.

Report from the Dock Water temperatures haven’t changed much since last week, but it has cooled enough to start triggering better muskie activity. In many areas, raising and hooking small muskies has not been an issue with bucktails or crankbaits. The majority of bigger muskies that have been caught over the past week seem to […]

Report from the Dock Walleyes still haven’t shifted into fall feeding mode, but water temperatures haven’t dropped much over the past week. Once that starts to happen, the state’s walleye bite will quickly improve. Currently, anglers continue to do best during low-light periods in shallow water mostly with crankbaits or with crawlers and minnows during […]

Report from the Dock Many reports were very similar this week to last, which tends to happen this time of year. Not much changes at this point until water temperatures start to again cool down. That means walleyes are primarily being caught on main lake structure or along thick weedlines, mainly early and late each […]

Report from the Dock Mayfly hatches continue to limit walleye success on many of the state’s bigger bodies of water, but for early July, the bite is still going pretty strong in most areas. Anglers seem to be putting more effort towards the early morning and evening hours, taking advantage of these low-light periods for […]
