Water temperatures remain warm, but a cold front is around the corner. Anglers can find success with a variety of fish. Keep reading to find the full fishing guide.


Northern Pike are being found around the weeds.

Bass: Rigging a worm wacky style and tossing it under and around docks will get you a good workout fighting Largemouth Bass during the day. Smallmouth Bass are still hanging around the rock humps, so a jig and half of a crawler or crayfish imitators will get them to bite.

Walleye can be found in a few areas. Check mud flats using a jig and crawler combo. You can also find success on the quick breaks of the rocks.

Perch are using the deep weed edge and hard soft transitions lately. Keep using jigs tipped with red worms or plastic. Crappies can be caught by using a slip bobber tipped with a piece of plastic like Kalins crappie scrub. in this warm weather, it is difficult to keep minnows lively. Bluegills are in the shallow weeds and can be caught slip bobbering tipped with plastic, waxworms, or a piece of crawler.

Muskie: Tossing bucktails and glide baits over the weed tops are the ticket. Anglers can also try casting big rubber baits over deep water.

Information for this week’s fishing report was provided by Colin Crawford from Colin Crawford’s Guide Service.
