Excerpts from the May 23, 2016 Hayward Lakes Area Outdoor Report by Steve Suman

The forecast indicates a rather warm and possibly wet week ahead, with “chances” of rain nearly every day from Monday through Saturday. Some of the chances look like good bets; others appear to be only chances. Carry a rain jacket – and please do not wash your car!

 “This should be a good fishing week,” says Pat at Happy Hooker “as the weather will be warming daily... Walleye fishing is fair to good and you will find more active fish in cabbage weeds. Fish 1/8-ounce jigs with large fatheads early and late in the day. Northern, active in the same weeds, will hit any size minnow, as well as spinnerbaits and crankbaits... “Bass action is good, especially largemouth cruising shorelines where they will soon spawn, and they will hit just about anything. Largemouth season is open and there is no size limit on some lakes, but be sure to check the regulation for the lake you fish. Smallmouth fishing is catch and release only until June 18... “Cold weather last week moved crappies back to deeper water, but they will come back with the warmer water temperatures. Tattle-Tails, Mini Mites, small tubes, and plastics are working well. Bluegills will move shallow in a week or so. Perch are in the weeds, taking leaf worms and small minnows.”

At Hayward Bait, guide Steve Genson says fishing is improving with the warmer weather.  “The walleye bite remains spotty, with some fish biting jigs and minnows worked through new weeds and on breakline edges, and others hitting trolled minnow baits such as Rapalas and Flicker Shads. Bass action is improving and Senkos, jigs/plastics, and jerkbaits are good choices. Smallmouth fishing remains catch and release... Crappies are moving shallower and the bite is improving on minnows, plastics, and one-inch Gulp! Minnows in 3-10 feet. Keep moving until you find fish.”

Mike at Jenk’s says Chippewa Flowage walleye fishing is okay, with fish less active than during opening weekend.  “Baits of choice are minnows and leeches for live bait and Flicker Shads, Bad Shads, X-Raps, and Husky Jerks for artificials. Northern are active in the weeds, taking creek chubs and suckers... During the cooler weather, crappies moved from the bays and into deeper water. Fish brush piles and cribs with crappie minnows, one-inch Gulp! Minnows, and tube jigs.”

Jim at Minnow Jim’s says anglers are catching Nelson Lake walleyes, with some fish too short, just short, and some that are just right... “Use jigs and minnows, Beetle Spins, and Rapalas, trolling or casting shorelines early and late in the day. For northern, fish in bays and near weedlines with sucker minnows, or cast spinnerbaits, weedless spoons, or Mepps spinners. Largemouth bass are hitting minnows and leeches, scented worms, dressed swim jigs, and surface baits... For panfish, work from deeper water to shallow, drifting live bait under slip bobbers, jigging minnows or worms, or casting small spinners.” 

FISHING REPORT

Walleye:  Walleye fishing is fair to good when you find them, though with inconsistent action. As is generally true, early morning and late evening into dark hours offer the best chances for success, particularly around shallow weeds and shorelines. During the day, fish cover, structure, and flats in 12-18 feet. Top live bait choices include jigs tipped with fatheads, crawlers, or leeches. For artificials, troll or cast Rapalas, Flicker Shads, X-Raps, Husky Jerks, and Beetle Spins.

Northern Pike:  Northern fishing is good to very good around new weeds, weedlines, shallow bays – and anywhere you find panfish. Minnows of various sizes produce the best success, but spinners, spinnerbaits, spoons, minnow baits, and crankbaits can all catch the pike’s attention.

Largemouth Bass:   Largemouth fishing is good in the shallows and fish are hitting a wide variety of baits, including plastics (worms, lizards, tubes), swim jigs, surface baits, jerkbaits, and live bait such as crawlers, leeches, and minnows.  Note: Smallmouth bass fishing in the northern bass zone is catch and release only until Saturday June 18.

Crappie:  Crappie action is good and improving, but fish have been difficult to locate. Look for weeds, brush, and cribs, in depths to 10 feet. Preferred baits include crappie minnows, tube jigs, hair jigs, plastics, and one-inch Gulp! Minnow under slip bobbers, and small spinners.

Bluegill:  Bluegill fishing is good to excellent, with fish shallow to deeper, depending on the lake and weather conditions. Best baits include waxies, worms, and crawler pieces under slip bobbers, small minnows, Gulp! baits, plastics, and spinners.

What  great weather to be out fishing on the Big Chip!

Friday I guided Roscoe and John out of Shady Nook Resort. We stuck to the East side and found some pretty nice Gill's and a handfull of Crappies up in the shallows.  

Saturday I fished with Bill and his crew of kids on the West side. Boy did the kids have fun! Seeing fish and catching them as well! Still seeing plenty of Crappies up shallow yet but for the most part they are on their way out towards weeds and shallower brush.

Sunday Julie and I got out and checked some areas I havent fished in a couple of years and boy did it pay off! We both had a BLAST catching our limit of Crappies and releasing many more. Time for a fish fry!

For the most part, crappies are on their way out of the shallows in spots that normally go early, but, on other parts of the lake, they are in full swing!

Good Luck, be safe and we'll see you on the water!

Smallmouth bite has been great on a few area lakes. Big fish and lots of them. There are pre/post/spawning fish out there. We have been throwing jerkbaits for prespawners. Dragging plastics has been picking up post spawners. The bite is getting better everyday!

Excerpts from the May 16, 2016 Hayward Lakes Area Outdoor Report by Steve Suman

“The weather did a complete turnaround from opening weekend,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “and we hope this is not the pattern of the past few years, with one week good and the next week not so good... Walleyes are in 5-10 feet, just off the weeds and on drop-offs, with jigs and minnows working best. It is a little early for leeches and crawlers, but some people are trying them... Northern pike and musky are still roaming the shallows and walleye and crappie anglers are catching them on jigs and minnows. If you target pike, try spinnerbaits and smaller crankbaits fished with slow to medium retrieves. Musky season does not open until May 28... Anglers are catching largemouth bass in the shallows on jigs and minnows, crankbaits, spinners, and small plastics. On the Quite Lakes Chain, largemouth are in season and there is no minimum length. Smallmouth fishing in the northern bass zone is catch and release only until June 18... Crappies moved to deeper water, 5-8 feet, with the colder temperatures. Live bait on slip bobbers works best, along with Tattle-Tails, Mini-Mites, and Gulp! Minnows.”

Guide Steve Genson at Hayward Bait says walleye fishing is not great, but the weather has taken a turn... The week ahead looks great with a warming trend, so look forward to the bite improving with the temperatures...  We have reports of smaller walleye catches in 10-20 feet on jigs tipped with fatheads, leeches, and plastics... Trolling Rapalas in the evening should get some bites as well... Crappie reports are good for fish in 3-10 feet, with minnows and plastics catching fish.”

Jim at Minnow Jim’s says the cold and wind really put a damper on most fishing.  “The walleye bite is steady on jigs and fatheads, Beetle Spins, and sucker minnows... Try the bays in late afternoon and evening hours... Pike anglers report success on weedless spoons tipped with Twister Tails; black and white combinations work best... For largemouth, fish around developing weed beds with scented worms, frogs, and spoons.  Before the temperature dropped, male crappies were in shallow water preparing beds. Start your fishing at bay openings and move toward shore. Try minnows, Gulp! baits, and small spinners.” 

Walleye:  Walleye fishing is fair and inconsistent. As usual, the prime hours are early morning and the hour before dark. Depths vary from 4-22 feet, depending on the lake, location, time, and weather. Jigs and fatheads work best, but anglers are also reporting success on walleye suckers, crawlers, leeches, and plastics under slip bobbers or on split shot rigs, and with Beetle Spins. In the evening, just before dark, cast or troll Rapalas and stickbaits along shorelines.

Northern:  Northern pike action is good in shallow weeds and anywhere you find concentrations of panfish. Sucker minnows are always a good choice. For artificials, try crankbaits or work spinnerbaits and spoons tipped with Twister Tails through the weed beds.

Largemouth Bass:  Largemouth bass are moving towards the shallows and you will find them around weeds, brush, and other structure. Live bait, spinnerbaits, crankbaits, spoons, and plastics (worms, frogs, grubs, etc.) are all effective baits.

Smallmouth Bass:  Smallmouth bass fishing in the northern bass zone is catch and release only until the season opens June 18.

Crappie:  Crappies are making a spawning effort, but the cold weather pushed them to somewhat deeper water. Start in 10 feet or so and move shallower – or start shallow and work deeper – until you find the fish. Bait choices include crappie minnows, Tattle-Tails, Mini-Mites, Gulp! baits, and small plastics under slip bobbers, and small spinners.

Bluegill:  Look for bluegills in warm water bays and shallows. Sunshine and warmer temperatures will move them back to shallow water. Best baits include waxies, worms, plastics, and Gulp! baits on small hooks, jigs, and teardrops fished under slip bobbers.

First Quarter

With last weekend's fishing opener, there are a lot of fly fishing opportunities in the area.  There is great trout fishing in the area rivers and streams and still some steelhead in the lake superior tributaries.  In the lakes, panfish can be caught on both dry and wet flies in the dark weedy bays and toothy fish are taking streamers fished with sinking lines.

Contact me if you're interested in learning to fly fish - Before the SMB and Musky action cranks up on the rivers later this summer, I'm offering half day on the water instruction in a relaxed setting.  All the latest in fly equipment is provided.  While most casting instruction classes are on dry ground, we will be out in a large open pontoon casting at fish instead!

Cheers, JS

Sunshine, blue skies, and temperatures in the high 80s made for near-perfect conditions during this past weekend’s fishing opener. The forecast indicates more moderate temperatures and rain this week, but we do need considerable moisture to minimize the current Very High fire danger.

“This was the best opening weekend in a number of years,” says Pat at Happy Hooker. “Do not wait too long to take advantage of this great start!  "The best walleye action is in 5-8 feet just off weeds and drops-off. Anglers are catching plenty of legal size fish on jigs with fatheads or leeches. For northern pike in the shallows, try spinnerbaits tipped with Twister Tails in the weeds with slow to medium retrieves." "Slip bobbers and walleye suckers will also produce."  “Friday’s summer-like weather triggered crappies to move shallow water to begin their spawn cycle. Fish are very aggressive, hitting live bait, small plastics, and tubes under slip bobbers.”


At Hayward Bait, Bob and Sonya say the weather for the Wisconsin opener was beautiful.  “We have numerous reports of walleye catches on jigs and minnows fished along structure and weed edges in 8-16 feet. Stickbaits and crankbaits in evening and early morning hours also work. Northern pike are along weed beds in 5-10 feet, taking live bait, spinnerbaits, and spoons."  “Some anglers are doing well on largemouth bass, fishing plastics and spinnerbaits out to 10 feet. Crappie and bluegill fishing is good on plastics and live bait out to 10 feet, though most action is very shallow.”

Mike at Jenk’s says walleye anglers report solid fishing action.  “Anglers are finding an abundance of walleye in 15-17 feet around brush and irregular bottoms. Use medium walleye minnows and rainbow chubs, as well as crawlers and leeches, or troll and cast Beetle Spins and crankbaits. Northern pike are in shallower weeds and cover, feeding on live bait.  Largemouth bass are very active around cover in bays in 3-4 feet, hitting crawlers, Beetle Spins, spinnerbaits, and crankbaits. Crappie fishing is great on live minnows, one-inch Gulp! Minnows, and various crappie plastics and jigs. Look for them in the same areas as largemouth.”


Jim at Minnow Jim’s says the weather was a nice treat for the opener!  “Anglers are catching walleyes of all sizes, most by jigging fatheads off bottom in 5-8 feet on developing weed beds. Leeches under slip bobbers and Rapalas are also working. Fish northerns in shallow bays with sucker minnows, surface baits, and spinners."  “Crappies are still in deeper water and full of soft spawn. For bluegills, fish shallow, warmer bays with small hooks and jigs tipped with waxies, worms, leeches, and Gulp! baits under bobbers.” 

Walleye:  Walleye anglers did well during opening weekend, though some did better than others. Look for the post-spawn fish in depths from 4-18 feet around brush, drop-offs, weed beds, rock, mud bottoms, and flats. Baits of choice include jigs with fatheads or leeches, walleye suckers, crawlers, Beetle Spins, and crankbaits.

Northern:  Northern pike are very active in shallow bays and weeds – any location holding panfish. Top bait choices include live bait such as walleye and northern suckers under bobbers, spinners, spinnerbaits, and surface baits.

Largemouth Bass:  Largemouth bass fishing is fair to very good in shallower, warmer bays near cover such as wood and rock. Crawlers, Beetle Spins, spinnerbaits, and crankbaits are all effective presentations.

Crappie:  Crappie fishing is good to excellent, with fish close to spawning. Look for fish in shallow bays (3-4 feet) to deeper water (holding larger fish), near weeds and cover. Crappie minnows, jigs, plastics, and Gulp! one-inch minnows will all entice the crappies.

Bluegill:  Bluegills are moving to the shallow, warmer bays for spawning in a few weeks. Best baits include small, plain hooks or various jigs configurations tipped with waxies, worms, or leeches under bobbers.

Thank you  to anyone willing to help and I hope everyone has a good season on the water!


"Hi anyone who might read this as this thread looks about dead unless its the middle of summer or middle of winter lol Yawn but in any case it won't hurt to put this out there as I take any help I can get! I'm just looking for some water up dates and any info on fish size in this lake. I have fished it a couple of times before and have got crappie, bluegill, walleye and of corse a million snake northern Dull but was just wondering what the upper size classes of those fish are in this lake? That is if anyone knows? I am looking to come up and fish it around the end of May and would love any tips or ideas on where to start looking for those upper class fish.... That is if there in the I just want to do some good ol trophy hunting and don't plan on keeping but a few for some meals well I'm in town. So trust in the fact that I know better then to plunder a resource. If you would like to PM me to keep this all under the radar I don't blame you. Other wise if nobody has any info they would like to share its understandable " Wink Lips Sealed Wink Lips Sealed

Fishing is fantastic right now on a variety of lakes. On smaller lakes there are even crappies starting to bed up as of last night. Water temps were around 58. We have fished around weeds and brush just outside of spawning sites. This is my favorite time of year to get on some of the biggest crappies in a system. We have been using plastics and floats.

Excerpts from the May 2, 2016 Hayward Lakes Area Outdoor Report by Steve Suman

“Though water temperatures are a little cooler now,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “they were high enough to bring perch in to spawn in the shallows. “Perch action is good on minnows fished in as shallow as 2 feet the backs of bays. In shallow water, it is important to use very light tackle, with 4- to 6-pound line and very small bobbers. “Crappies are staging for spawn on most lakes and have started to move into the weeds. Use minnows and small plastics on light tackle. “Be sure to check the new regulations for this year. Some changes for the Quiet Lakes Chain include 25/10 on panfish, with no more than 10 of any one species, and the May 7 largemouth bass opener. “There is still time to purchase a new license and avoid the rush!”

At Hayward Bait, Bob, Sonya, and Kelly wish good luck to all anglers fishing the Saturday May 7 opener. “The walleye bite should be good in mornings or early evenings with fatheads or leeches on jigs, crankbaits, and stickbaits. “For anglers currently fishing panfish, crappies are in 10-12 feet along weed edges and other structure, hitting minnows, waxies, tube jigs, and plastics. Bluegills in similar depths are taking crawlers, waxies, tube jigs, and plastics. As the days warm, fish will move to shallower water.”

Mike at Jenk’s says the Chippewa Flowage is at full pool and water temperatures are in the high 40s to low 50s. “The crappie spawn has not started, but smaller males are congregating in bays and larger females are in deeper water. If numbers are your goal, fish bays with weed cover in 3-4 feet of water. For the larger females, target cribs and brush piles in 15-25 feet. “The opener is this weekend and now that it appears walleyes have completed spawning, anglers will probably find fish heading out of the river channels into deeper water. Try outside of Moores Bay, Chief Narrows, and Hay Creek Narrows. During the day, try between the Banana Islands with crankbaits, Beetle Spins, and walleye minnows. Check areas with thick, sunken brush and deep weeds around river and creek channels. “This time of year, northern pike tend to have more interest in live bait than in artificials. Try fishing northern suckers or chubs on the west side, particularly Squaw Bay, Dagget’s Bay, Musky Bay, and Chicago Bay.”

This week, DNR fisheries biologist Max Wolter discusses the 2016 fishing opener. “The Hayward Fish Team is wishing anglers good luck and a safe and productive opener! Now that many species have finished spawning, the fish should settle into more predictable patterns. “Northern pike spawning started in early April in many lakes, but stretched on for a longer than usual time span thanks to cooler weather. Walleye spawning peaked in mid-April. Most fish should have finished in all lakes and should be ready to eat again. “Panfish and largemouth bass will seek the warmest water they can find as they stage for their spawning. Look for dark bottomed bays to find crappie, bluegill, and largemouth bass. “Anglers may still see spawning muskies cruising shorelines of some deeper, cooler lakes. “All in all, conditions look very similar to the 2015 fishing opener and repeating successful patterns from last year may pay dividends.”

“The ice is off the lakes,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “and we are seeing a good number of boats on the water. If we have mild temperatures, it should not be long for the fish to complete their spawning cycles. “Some anglers report catches of perch in the shallows. Find the warmest water on the warmest part of the lake. There can be significant temperature differences on the lakes at this time of year, as much as 8 degrees from main lake basins to the back of bays. Look for weeds (they absorb the sun), stumps, inlets, and the very back of bays, particularly on the north side, and fish as shallow as 2 feet. Afternoons, with the warmest water of the day, are best. Minnows, worms, Mini Mites, tube jigs, and other plastics work very well in the shallows. “After perch complete their spawning cycle, crappies will start moving into some of the same areas. “With the opener less than two weeks away, this is a good time to get your license to avoid the rush. The new license system is more time consuming and bringing your old license for the agent to scan will cut your waiting time.” Bob and Sonya at Hayward Bait say walleyes are spawning. “They should finish by the season opener and the post-spawn walleye bite should be on fire! “Crappies are moving into the shallow as the water temperature warms and the bite picked up a bit. Use both live bait and plastics. “Steelhead are active on the Brule and other Lake Superior tributaries. Anglers report good success with spawn, yarn, and wet flies, and hardware such as Mepps and Panther Martin spinners. “Be cautious on the rivers – the water is still high and moving fast!”

Fishing has been good up shallow and tight to wood. Slowing down has been key. Burn up water until you get a bite then slow down and catch them. Wood in the 3-8 foot range has been key during these cooler temperatures. There are far more fish staging that are up shallow. But it is far more fun to catch them up shallow. The flowage has been great along with a number of other area lakes. Here are a few from a smaller lake. Guys did great catching a ton of fish.

Wondering if anyone's ever had any luck with crappies or gills on the Tiger Cat Chain. I fished a lot of the usual stuff the last couple springs and summers, mainly in the upper half (both Twins and McClaine), like deep weed lines, points, channel edges, humps, bogs and shallow bays early but didn't have much luck. Found a few decent perch but no crappies or gills.

Spent all of Saturday out on The Big Chip in search of Crappies and covering a lot of water in the process. Started my adventure on the South East side, from Granite Bay all the way over to Sunfish Bay, on the far West side.

I swung up to Moss Creek checking the shallows there. The average water temp was 54 for the most part and some bays were 56 degrees. Found some fish up tight to the wood but for the most part, not a lot of fish in. Most are outside in their staging areas in about 8-12 FOW.

Over in Crystal and Crane I found warmer temps along with a good numbers of fish. The ones I saw were in really tight to shore and super spooky! Some fish were as shallow as a foot! Not all the usual spots in that area are holding fish quite yet. With this up and down weather we're going through, will bring them in or push them back out deeper.

Over in the Chief Lake, Squaw Bay and Sunfish Bay area, nothing was up in the shallows in any of the spots I checked. Moved out deeper in about 8-10 FOW and found fish.

We need another spell of warm weather to get things popping but it doesn't sound like it was going to be this week. With the nearly 3 inches of rain we got yesterday brought the the lake temp down but we needed the rain.

On another note, the bog is not blocking the CC bridge at this time. It blew to the south of the bridge and out of the way totally. Maybe with the high water level now and a strong east wind, it would send all the bogs out from that area.

Give me a call to book your 2016 fishing trip on The Big Chip! TC

Saw a Facebook post a couple weeks ago where a tribe member was trying to sell speared musky for $2 per pound (20 lb fish), so I'd say yes they are spearing.
