Walleye were slower earlier in the week with the smaller ones still biting, but the bigger ones seemed to have gone dormant after a week of unpredictable weather. Now that the weather is normalizing over the last few days, the bigger Walleyes are becoming slightly more active again usually starting to come alive about 5-10 minutes before dark. Most action is now coming on Crawlers and Leeches but there are still some fishermen that are swearing by minnows.
Muskie have been active all week with some fishermen reporting caught fish, and many others reporting follows and boil ups. Surface baits have been deadly along with smaller sub-surface baits. Work weed edges, stumps, and drop offs for the best results. Callahan Lake saw multiple nice fish this week including a 40 incher.
Pike have been slower as of late with only the snakes and hammer handles being active. There are still reports of bigger fish on the west side of the Flowage, but overall Northern fishing has gone downhill over the past week or so.
Crappie have maintained their activity all week but seem to be scattered again. Some are catching them in the shallows while others are catching them in the brush piles and bogs. They do not seem to be picky on the baits you use either, but the trick is finding them at the right time.
Not much has been reported on the Bass situation as of late. The bass that have been caught thus far this week seem to be in the smaller range of size mainly biting on poppers, plastics, and spinnerbaits.
It looks like it is going to be in the 70s all week with Heavy Thunderstorms on Monday and nice weather up through Thursday. Stay tuned on Jenk's Bait's facebook page for further weather updates and changes.
Low to Mid 70s
