Mixed bag of weather this week kept anglers guessing. Low temps in the high 30’s and close out the week with mid 80’s. Strong winds from the Northwest, dead calm and brisk south winds ending the week.
Anglers had success, although limited, at mid depth rages for walleyes. 12’ on the shallow end down to 30’ on the deep end of the spectrum.
Your choice of presentation, slip sinker rigs or bottom bouncers using leech or crawler, or jig and minnow in the same depth range.
This past week short snells with or without spinners, keeping your bait just off bottom improved your harvest chances. Anglers jigging said the bite was close to the bottom. Dark jigs, multi colored, plain green or blue got some attention.
Water temperatures nearing the mid 70’s sped up the mayfly hatch which appears to be ending. Beware now of the flies, primarily the ankle biters.
Northern pike action picking up, weed edges working good. Cast your favorite baits to them or troll near the weed edges for promising action.
Smallmouth hitting artificials on shorelines and rock ledges. Top water baits fun to use in open weed areas. Sauger and perch bite has slowed down as they head to deeper waters.
Mid-Kabetogama and Namakan getting a better catch rate then the west end of Kab.
This time of year the kids will love tubing or skiing mid-day when fishing action slows down.
B-I-N-G-O Tuesday and Thursday Evenings 8:00pm at the New Community Hall.
