Fishing Report

Fishing Report - June 23rd, 2017

We're definitely moving into a summer pattern with the walleye in the area. Fish tend to be deep over 15' and are starting to spread out on larger flats. Rigging with a nightcrawler has been the go-to way to find them. Take advantage of the windy/cloudy days as these have produced consistently on most lakes, especially Leech Lake. 

Woman lake has been very good the last couple of weeks, but it has been coming down to normal. There are still good numbers being caught out there, but it is performing more in line with the other local lakes like Little Boy, Baby, Birch, and Ten Mile. The crawler bite has definitely taken hold on many of these lakes now that we're coming out of the bug hatches. 

The bass have been bellying up to the banks waiting for frogs. Get into the weeds deep with jigs and frogs, especially during the warmer parts of the day. Early morning and evening are finding fish on the outside edges more and deeper water. 

If you're looking to fill a pan full of crappie, suspend a crappie minnow under a bobber in 6-14' in the evenings and early mornings. Find the growing cabbage and/or deep stick piles near beaver lodges. If you don't want to watch a bobber, long line your favorite crappie jig over the weed flats and troll around - this can be a great way to find pockets of fish you can jig or bobber fish.

Muskie action has been hit and miss as usual this time of year. Mix it up with different jerkbaits and plastics to produce when bucktails aren't performing. Don't be afraid to snap on a topwater over the cabbage flats in the evenings or after dark either!
