FISHING REPORT
5/28/13 10:29 AM CST
Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 66° - 70° F Water Temp: 56° - 60° F
During week of 5/18/2013 to 5/25/2013, Fishing on the whole spotty - Still affected by late ice out (reportedly 3 days before season opener). Water temp: 59-62 Degrees.

Reports of jumbo perch being taken in 8ft and deeper.

We primarily fished for northern and some crappie/bluegill. Northern fishing was considerably less than past years, but those caught(mostly on small chubs) were small but great action. Some windy conditions (15-25 mph) on a couple of days limited choice spots to fish. Some protection on Southern portion of lake, especially off the island. Good news weather was mostly sunny and limited rain, mostly overnight.

Fishing probably still limited due to unstable weather conditions, so may be a couple of weeks before action returns to spring "normal" (my Opinion).

Hope this helps. Jim the steel wheel.

hoodybobber:

Ice still there and talking with a couple of local people, it may be close as to whether its still on or not... Though there was the belief that they were raising the level of the lake, so that may help open the ice open a bit faster. That being the case, it would seem likely that the lake may be ice free away from the boat landing. The landing is good (though steep) and is situated away from most all of the current areas so it could conceivably have ice on that side. On Pickeral, you will be targeting mostly panfish and northern pike. Any other catch should probably be considered incidental.

As for the Rainbow, it likely could be open, but again can you get on it... Though one of its landings, closest to the dam does have current flow close to it, so you should stand a decent chance if its open of getting on the lake. You should be able to target some walleyes here and trolling is an option... Lastly if open there is another good launch right across from Pickeral on J. Both the Rainbow launches are steep, so have good emergency brakes and DO NOT unclip your boat until its over water as I have watched boats come off trailers!!! Good luck and have a safe trip to, while and after your Northwoods fishing opener!!!

Coming up with my future son in law to the pickerel Lake area opening weekend and staying a few extra days. can anyone tell me what the ice is like now or is there open water...

Never fished this area, but we plan is to work the Rainbow flowage and Pickerel lake.. Mostly catch and release with a few keepers for a fish fry while were there.. any comments on boat launces good vs bad ones... or any tips on what fish are being targeted in early May... types of baits, pointers that may put us on to some fish, I imagined its going to be tough with just getting use to the area also fishing with this cold weather that's been sticking with us.. plus being opening weekend.

Still no mater how fishing is, or what the weather is like... For me, its about getting out and enjoying the beauty of the outdoors and chillen in the boat.

PS... I shot this picture the other day in my back yard it was one of those KODAK moments, I know its not fishen but rather a unusual pic to share

Thanks Keep the line tight HoodyBobber

Igor:

Thanks for the friendly reminder... I know I am going to get back out there, but it could be another ten days yet... I am hoping to stay away from the 15"-20" of slush that is plaguing most lakes right now. Hell I even got stuck in my back yard yesterday!!! The only thing that was good about that was no water in the snow, while I used a come-along to get it back out and onto the drive way!!! Check back in with me in the middle of next week, we'll see if we can get out there...
