Fishing Report, February 6th, 2018

Posted by

Despite the cold temps, the fishing has continued to be pretty steady throughout the area. There hasn't been significant fluctuation in temp and pressure which has helped. Most fishermen have been sticking to the permanent houses due to the cold weather!

The crappie bite in the area has been very consistent in the evening hours. Off the deep edge in 18'+, and over the deeper water the fish move in during last light. Some nights they come in more aggressive than others, but for the most part they're not too finicky. It's always good to have a deadstick or bobber of some sort down just in case they're a little touchy - you'll find out pretty fast if they prefer the subtle presentation.

Bluegill have been pretty good across the area as well. Mid-day has been the best on the gills so far with a little flurry of activity in the early evening. 15'-20' has been the most consistent water depth, but in some instances you can find them up in the shallow water also. The bigger gills have been roaming in schools, and you need to take advantage when they come through.

Walleye have been a consistent evening bite in 17'-22' on a handful of lakes in the area. Don't expect to catch 30 fish throughout the day - get out an hour or so before dark and wrap it up after dark. Rainbows have been the ticket for walleye, and a shiner will work if you can find them. Don't get too aggressive with the jigging!
