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.
