Fishing Report 5/24

Hello Summer! I can finally say summer is here and it appears to be here to stay. The weather forecast looks good and and the fishing has been VERY GOOD, and I suspect that the bite will remain strong.

Big Pine, Little Pine, Rush, Ottertail as well as other lakes have been producing walleyes in 6-10 FOW. Small 1/16th and 1/8th ounce jigs tipped with a minnow or a plastic have been the ticket. Look for shallow shoreline breaks and flats that are adjacent to deep water, and don't be afraid to try different depths, speeds and jig colors! In the mornings and evening focus more in the 5-7 foot range, and mid-day focus more on the 7-10 foot range. Back troll/ Jig at speeds of 0.8-1.4 mph, and don't be afraid to try different speeds to figure out the speed the fish are wanting. Although the shallow bite has been the best, we are starting to hear a good amount of reports of anglers having success in deeper water. Shoreline points and humps are starting to produce walleyes on Jigging Raps and Lindy Rigs with a worm, leech, or minnow. This bite will continually improve as the water temps continue to rise.

The panfish bite has also been HOT with the late spring. Water temps are seasonally cold, which has the bluegills and crappies feeding hard as they rapidly approach the spawn. Find the shallow, warm water and you should find the bluegills and crappies. The best approach has been to use a small bobber with a small jig tipped with a crappie minnow, worm, or plastic. Big Pine, Rush, Star, Marion, Dead, and other area lakes have all been producing. Shallow, warm water in 2-6 feet has been the ticket. This bite also will stay strong for the next several days.

We look forward to a GREAT couple of weeks of fishing coming up, and are excited for the good fishing and warm weather to come! Happy Fishing Everybody!
