There’s been a significant bug hatch since last week so nightcrawlers have become the bait of choice for walleyes on the main lake humps, bars, and rocks in 14 to 18 feet. The main basin rock piles are giving up smallmouth bass, while largemouths are hitting topwater baits in the reeds or cabbage beds of most bays. Muskie and panfish action has been slow.
Crawlers and leeches seem to be producing the most walleyes on the main basin areas such as West Bar, Red Rock, Diamond Point, Claybanks, and the Annex in 14 to 20 feet. Some fish are being caught at night with crankbaits or leeches and slip bobbers off the points in less than 10 feet. Muskie […]
Walleyes continue to hit a jig and minnow on the wind-swept points and shorelines in 10 to 14 feet. Fish also are being caught on live-bait rigs or slip bobbers with leeches in 9 to 12 feet on the points or weed areas. Some limited walleye action is being reported at night with crankbaits or […]
Minnows are still producing walleyes on the wind-driven points and shorelines in 6 to 9 feet. If it’s calm or bright, anglers are having more success in 10 to 14 feet mainly on main lake structure with minnows, crankbaits, and leeches. Crappie and bluegill action has picked up throughout the reeds in Boy Bay and […]
Shiner minnows have been the ticket for walleyes along the wind-driven points and shorelines. Most fish are coming from 4 to 10 feet, although some fish are being found in slightly deeper water on the Goose Island Flats, Annex area, and other rock locations. The 8- to 10-foot weed areas are holding northern pike, while […]
