Fishing Report, June 25, 2018

Posted by

We're starting to see the summer pattern really set in now. More and more anglers are opting to run bottom bouncers with spinners to cover ground. Fish are starting to spread out so sitting on a spot with a vertical jig is not the best way to go to boat some fish - there are still some pockets of fish, but mostly we're seeing them scattered. Time to get out those nightcrawler rigs!

Bluegill are pulling off their beds, so they're a little harder to find. If you bump up and find few fish up shallow, try to pull off the deeper edge. Many walleye guys will pick big gills up in deep water after the spawn. Crappie are settled into their summer haunts particularly around the tall cabbage beds. Webb, Woman, Portage, and Ten Mile have been producing.

Largemouth bass are fired up on the frogs right now. There must be an increase in frogs on the shoreline and the fish are really moving up against the banks. Frogs are a great way to search a weedbed, but be prepared for a miss and have a rod setup with a jig or plastic ready to go for a throwback. 

Muskie fishing was very good early on when the season opened, but it seems they have gone into their typical dog days of summer mode. There are definitely fish to be had, but you'll have to put in some time and pay attention to the fronts/pressure/etc to try to catch a feeding window. Also don't be afraid to throw action heavy baits instead of bucktails - bucktails are a fantastic search bait when fish are active, but if they're not feeding it can be better to sit on a good piece of structure and throw slower action baits to trigger a reluctant fish.
