Walleye fishing has gone deep now that the cold is setting in. Most Walleye fishermen are reporting action in 26-30 foot holes on larger minnows primarily. Good spots to hit right now for the Walleyes are the holes just to the west of Popple Island.


Musky fishing has been good all around. Shore fishing has been producing a lot of fish especially around Hay Creek Narrows. The sucker bite has been very solid. For artificials, trolling and large rubber baits and glide baits have been the way to go.


Crappie have been hit or miss. Some guys are catching a decent amount while others not having as much luck. Crappie minnows have been the bait of choice. Fishing cribs and deeper holes seem to be producing the most success.


It is going to be a colder week this week. Expect some light snow this Saturday, Tuesday, Thursday, and next Saturday. Highs this week will be in the mid 30s to low 40s. Lows will primarily be in the mid 20s to low 30s
