Fishing Report, September 10, 2018

Posted by

Fishing has been pretty consistent the last couple weeks. Walleye are in a typical summer pattern, with some thicker pockets of fish you can capitalize on here and there with different techniques. Some good evening and night bites going on some of the smaller area lakes. As the water cools, we should see things continue to get better and better. 

Smallmouth fishing is really ramping up and guys are doing very well with swim baits, jigs, and cranks during the day. Be sure to get your lures well up onto the shallow flats and work it down off the break. Most fish are on the edges, but they're cruising the shallows too. Drop shot is effective, but you don't cover a lot of water to take advantage of the aggressive smallmouth right now. If you find a pocket of fish the drop shot will work well, but covering water is the best tactic right now.

Not too many people chasing panfish the last couple weeks. A few guys after crappies have done well. Ten Mile, Stony, and portage have all produced. They'll be hanging on the thick/tall weedbeds just pitch or troll throw them and you'll find fish!

Muskie fishing has been hot and it has been not hot, but it has never been bad in the last couple weeks. If you aren't seeing fish, switch it up because there are definitely fish going when the right bait goes by. We have seen a surprising amount of action on topwater the last couple weeks. It seems like the slow days in one boat are great days in others. All depends on what you're throwing and where, but it always seems like someone is dialed in.
