Fishing Report, June 11, 2018

Posted by

We've seen a strong shift to the Leeches and Crawlers over the last week, and many fish are actually still up shallow on the smaller to mid sized lakes. Right now they seem to be in a transition point where they are starting to show up in their deep water spots, but they can also be found on their shallower flats, especially in the evenings and after dark. 

Lighted bobbers with a leech or minnow have been working well on the humps after dark, and pitching crankbaits has been a great way to target those late biters as well. Early morning and late evening bite have both been very good. During the day you definitely want to chase the wind and chop - crawlers and leeches on the drift have worked pretty well.

Crappie have moved into their normal summer patter off that first drop off in the cabbage beds, and the bluegill have been up very shallow spawning. 

Largemouth and smallmouth bass have been biting great. There are still some spawning smallmouth, but many have spawned. We should see a good smallmouth bite as the fish start to recuperate from spawning. Smallmouth will be on the hunt, and a great way to pick them up is a slower falling jig on the drop-offs in clear water lakes - the fish see that from a long ways away and can't resist. Crankbaits or noisy topwater in dirtier water works well also.

Largemouth are piling into the thickening weedbeds now and we're going to be back to the summer frog bites. Load up that 50# line and get in deep! Early in the morning and late and in the evening can provide a good topwater bite on the edges as well.
