The lakes have been on a slow rise for the past week or so, but with more than an inch of rain in the forecast from Adams north to Rheinlander for Thursday evening through Saturday morning they may come up a little faster. With the fresh water and the increased flow it should get the fish on the move. If you’re looking for nice minnows, Matt at the Petenwell Sport Shop has good sized Tuffy’s.
I was out Monday for a few hours below the dam. I just pitched 1/8 ounce jigs tipped with Tuffy's. Color didn't matter, orange, pink, chartreuse, Had a dozen or so "shorties", couple "keepers", and 1 40+ musky. That's a lot of fun on 6# line.
Keep a tight line!!!
