Took awhile to find patterns but everything was in the weeds. Lots of slot walleyes 20-23". All on jigs in the weeds tipped with leeches or crawlers. Caught a ton of largemouth and not one under 14". Crappies were in 6-10 feet in the weeds. Caught tons of fish after we figured them out. We found the best fishing either away from the crowds or just before dark in the busy areas.

Fished Little St. this past week, not so good. Caught walleyes with leeches on slip bobbers set at 10', only 3 keepers out of about 20 landed. Caught some nice bass in West Bay on the weed edges using crawlers and leeches. Probably will be my last visit to Little St. Germain during the summer, way to many tubers, skiers, and wake boarders, they ran until dark and buzzed right in-between the people trying to fish making it very hard to  anchor and hold a spot. Did have 5 Musky follows all on orange/yellow bucktails.

Well, just returned from little St. Germain Lake. Didn't have much luck throwing for Muskie, but caught just about every other species available.

We fished the West bay (deeper/clearer) hard, a few hours a day. We weren't able to raise one up. Used jake's, grandma baits, bucktails, and gliders. Spoke with two young guys fishing about 7-10 feet just inside the West bay entry. They were using bright colored bucktails. They said they had a follow (low 40's) in that area about 30 minutes prior. The other bays are completely different than the West bay. They are shallower and far less visibility. Almost a tail of two lakes.

A bright 1/16oz jig with crappie minnow was the ticket for other fish. A few pan handle pike, large perch, walleye, bass, and crappie. Large mouth were biting on spinner baits and plastic worms. Pan fish, as usual, were hitting crawlers. 


I hope this helps someone that's headed up that way.

Cheers.

Does anybody have any tips for me on Little St. Germain, haven't been up here in quite a while. Coming up the week of July 18th with the family and would like to try a little walleye and perch fishing. Don't need your spots just some depths and baits to try. Might throw a few Musky lures also.


Feel free to message me, Thanks,

Ron

Fished here Saturday and Sunday. Fished in 7-10' of water with scattered weeds, found many gills, crappies and perch. While the bulk of them were on the small side you could manage enough for a couple of meals with some sorting. Gold diamond horizontal jig with red spikes or waxies was productive. Perch and crappies ignored small minnows. Fish were scattered in the water column with some 3 feet under the ice. The ice was about 15" with the top 5" frozen slush and 10" of clear ice. Snow meted off on Sunday to standing puddles and water running in the holes. Saw one truck on the ice Saturday. eyesman

Don't be afraid to fish in the weeds, especially forLMB and drift the deep weed edges for eyes.
