Good Morning,

Saturday I caught a 24.5" Walleye which is the largest I've pulled in on Nokomis. Released! Also caught 1/2 dozen nice crappie. Lots and Lots of fisherman.

By the way - I take the cam down while we're up here.

I've been on Nokomis every other weekend since the opener. I'm fairly certain the weather has not been sunny for 24 hours over a Friday - Saturday - Sunday. The water temp is still COLD in my opinion. I checked the weather yesterday morning and it said 36! This morning it reads 56. Water levels have been holding fairly consistent.

So, I agree the fishing has been hit or miss, but I wouldn't label is a bust. I've pulled some nice Walleye in the 16-20" range on a consistent basis as well as have done "ok" for bluegill and crappie.

I'm going up for 9 days straight this Saturday. I can't wait!!

Cam is still up and running. Feel free to check out weather or water levels.

Went fishing this past Sunday with my brother and brother in-law to Nokomis. We were mainly targeting bluegills, also fishing a little for pike and bass. The lake was at full height with all the rain that we have been getting. We found that the smaller gills were up quite shallow in the brush and weeds. The bigger bull gills were hanging out on the deeper edge of the cover. With the warmer weather in the forecast the bluegills should start spawning within a week or so. We were catching them on both a plain hook and small jig tipped with a third of a crawler. We picked up a few pike and a nice bass casting the shorelines with a jerkbait. We also seen a caught a few crappies that were still hanging out in the shallow cover.

Fishing report from last Friday 5/8 - Monday 5/11

When the temperature was above 65-70 (Friday only) the fish were hitting great. 13 crappie, 2 northern in about 60 minutes. Once the sun started to fade and the temp dropped the fish stopped biting. ALL RELEASED

Saturday - 60-65 Partly sunny - No crappie, but the walleye were hitting and seamed very aggressive with jigs. It was a good afternoon-evening fishing for them. 4 walleye. 1 over 20". ALL RELEASED

Sunday - Not a lot of time to fish. Cold rainy- Nothing, but wasn't going to go out in it.

Monday - Not a lot of time to fish. Cold rainy in the AM.

Went out last night. It was a little choppy but did alright. Caught about a dozen crappie and a mixed bag of other species. Fish were located in the warmer water temp zones, and near structure. Only saw one other boat out.

Tight lines and harvest selectively. Let the females swim another day!

SPEARING....I've been on this lake for years, and I wanted to let you all know about a disturbing fact. It was either last spring or the spring before, but I talked to a dnr guy at the boat launch. And he showed me a breakdown of the spearing reports of each lake around the area. WOW, what a shock. No wonder we can't hardly catch many walleyes of decent size. Lake Nokomis was the 2nd highest speared lake in the area. There were over 25 lakes on This chart. Nokomis had over 2,300 walleyes speared that year. To me that is disgusting and something needs to change. I don't care if this is their "right". They are decimating the walleye population and it shows. No wonder the Minaqua Chain has a 0 bag limit for 5 years. If your gonna spear fish, make your own spear and don't use huge spotlights at night. WHAT A JOKE!!!

Fished all weekend. Saturday seemed really slow, only 4 walleyes caught in our group. Sunday a few more early morning, went after panfish. Nice bluegills seem to be tight in the flooded brush/trees right next to uslands. Found a hole with 14" crappies also , but every island was hit or miss.

Ok. I know I have seen this issue before. Can someone help me out with the rotated pictures? I tried rotating them before uploading but that didn't help. Thanks.

I can't speak to the amount of spearing done but I can tell you we caught one 14" walleye that appeared to be hit with a spear. It had a large gash on one side and a hole in the top of it's back on the other side. I was surprised it was still going. Got into some great action Sunday morning with non stop walleye and crappies. Had my limit of 3 eyes in about an hour and a half with one slot fish at 21" released. Also caught another one at 21" Saturday evening. Jig and minnow was the ticket while crawlers caught a few fish also. Got one walleye on a twister tail as well. All caught on steep drops with structure.

Dances With Eyes,

It's possible,but I really never heard anything nor did I see any spearing happening. Spearing is such a hot topic that I'm sure one of my neighbors would have had a comment or two if the lake was speared.
