Fishing Report / News
Date: 2014-07-13


Walleye are still following the same patterns. In the morning and afternoon, they can be caught on leeches and beetlespins mostly in the sunken brush primarily between the Banana Islands and off the NW corner of Turkey Vulture Island. In the evening fish the bars with the same bait. Some really good eaters have been caught this week.


The largest Musky I have heard of being caught this week was a 47 incher on the Chip. Musky have been spotty with days that they are aggressive and days where they just won't move. But when they are on they are on. Good baits to throw include Black and Green Bladed Bucktails, Bull Dawgs, Surface Baits, and Spinnerbaits. This past week fishermen have reported a lot of success on the Pink Tinseltail Spinnerbait, and Best American Tackle Globes and Creepers. By the way, the Black and Flowage Green Bull Dawgs are back in stock and they are going fast. Stop in and pick some up while supplies last.


Northerns continue to be aggressive and are hitting on everything from live bait to spinners and spoons.


Crappie fishing is more of a night bite. Your best bet is to fish the bogs, brush piles, and cribs with minnows, mini-mites, and Gulp Crappie Nibbles. Remember...with summer temperatures now in full swing, do not be afraid to baby your minnows to make them last longer. They do not have the longevity and hardiness they have in the Spring and the Fall.


Largemouth have been relatively slow this week, however, some good news is coming in on the Smallmouth finally. Some fishermen have found them in 8-12 feet just off the bars with Nightcrawlers in Moore's and Sherman's Bay.


Weather reports suggest that other than Monday, it is going to be clear skies all week. It looks like a really great weather pattern for your upcoming vacation!!!
