I will be coming up on June 29th and staying for a week. I am looking to target walleyes out on the bay trolling or jigging depending on what the conditions call for.

Has the mud that got washed into the bay blown or settled out yet? What areas has the fishing been decent? Cranks or Crawlers? Any help would be appreciated.

Also, early in the week I may have room in my boat if somebody wants to join me. Feel free to PM me with info or your number if you want to go fishing. I will most likely be making morning and evening trips excursions.

Just a quick note to folks coming north this weekend to fish the bay. Since yesterday at 3 pm we have gotten 3 to 4 inches of rain depending on who you talk to around the area, So this will mean the head of the bay will be shot for fishing walleye again, and so will the mouth of the sloughs out to Oak point for bass. Just when the water was clearing up nicely for fisherman too. As for the smallie bite it's still going strong for the shallow bite, but more males are showing up in the daily catch, as a lot of the females are moving to deeper water after the spawn. Over the next week or so start looking to the summer grounds for your smallie fix folks! yep back to the run and gun game for a few months again. The walleye bite was going strong this past week yet for anglers so all good there yet! But soon folks will have to start looking deeper there too as the weeds come up more with every passing week. Gets pretty tough trying to troll through all those weed beds and keep your gear fishing. Have not heard much this week from guys about the trout bite as the winds were up a few days again. Good luck and tight lines. Chequamegon

Happy Fathers Day to all Lake Linkers! Smile Hopefully it's a great day on the water with the family and great memory's!.. As for current reports Mary said it all! The bass fishing is at that point now where it's a mix of pre spawn, spawning and post, So with these conditions remember to fish different areas shallow to near by deeper water as well to stay on a good bite. Everything from top water to plastics are working right now on the toads. Walleye are on fire right now as well, fishing crawler harness's and crank baits are all working right now. Fishing in as shallow as 4ft to 12ft depending which areas of the bay you are fishing. From one end to the other of the bay there are fish to be had. Your best action will be on the Ashland side. Some areas are better for eater's other sections are better for larger fish just depends on where you are. As for pike they are starting to feed a little further off shore now, still shallow but a little tougher from shore now. The trout bite is also starting to move off shore as well in most areas, typical of this time of year so start looking to 70 plus feet out to the flats for lakers and kings. We have some openings yet this month for walleye and bass give me a shout to get hooked up big time!.. Good luck on the water and tight lines!... Chequamegon

~ Fishing Guide Scott Bretting from River Rock Inn and Bait Shop, (715)-682-3232, http://www.riverrockinn.net Angler and Guide Nate at River Rock reports fishing has been super for all species of fish. Small Mouth Bass are getting up on the beds now with water temperatures warming up 7 or 8 degrees in the last week, approximately 60 - 61 in the shallows. Anglers are catching Smallies averaging 18 tp 21 inches using Senkos (plastic worms). Walleyes are really biting in the Bay right now whether you are trolling or casting. Trolling is good off of Long Island and in the South Channel and also good out on the Flats. Anglers are using boards and downriggers and catching Cohos, Lake Trout, King Salmon, and an occasional Brown Trout. Fishing on the Inlands has been good as the water temperatures warm up. Crappies are biting and Blue Gills are in pre-spawn right now and some are making beds - depending on which Lake you are fishing on.

~ Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter from Anglers All, (715)-682-5754, http://www.anglersallwisconsin. Carolyn at Anglers All Reports: The Big Lake has great fishing right now. Bass are in still in pre-spawn, spawn and some in post-spawn mode. Most fishing is being done at Sand Cut, Oak Point and Brush Point areas. Trout and Salmon fishing has been very good in the shallower waters. Fishing has been most productive trolling along the mud lines with stickbaits. As the water temperatures continue to warm the fish will go deeper and the Anglers will then move to using spoons and bait flies and run off of downriggers, dipsey divers and leadcore. Good places to fish without a boat are on the Ashland Marina Break-wall for Pan Fish and the Hot Pond for Bass and Walleye. The Inlands are having good luck with Bass, Walleye, Northern and Pan Fish all biting with Crappies, Blue Gills and Bass on beds.

The Big Lake has great fishing right now. Bass are biting and starting to make beds and the trolling has been bringing in Trout and Salmon for the Anglers on the outside of the Bay. Most fishing is being done at Sand Cut, Oak Point and Brush Point areas, depending on water clarity. Trout and Salmon fishing has been very good in the shallower waters. Fishing has been most productive trolling along the mud lines with stickbaits. The Inlands are having good luck with Bass, Walleye, Northern and Pan Fish are starting to make beds.

Hey Folks, Talk about a strange spring it’s the 5th of June and the weather is more like early May’s weather. The winds have been howling all spring form the east or north east it seems like every day this year. And today another day of lows 50’s with cold rain and some of the nights have been down low enough for good coats of frost some mornings! The last 5 days have been kind of dark and damp around these parts, A few warm days in there but not many! some sun shine and stable weather would be nice for one and all in these parts! Before this big cool down the fishing was Hot for bass 50 to 70 fish days were common and some better than that for anglers. Water temps were avg mid 60’s or better in most spots I was fishing. But now temps have dropped down to the high 50s or less with this cold rain again today. Big fish are still to be had but ya have to work for them a little harder and SLOWER at times during the day, Live bait is always a good bet during these cold fronts, As always sucker minnows work great and jumbo leeches as well just remember to use a circle hook with your live bait, to help cut down on loss. While on that note try and remove the top treble hook off the jerk baits it will cut down on eye loss on some of the bass and it also cuts down on your snags, always a good thing for you and the fish. Most bass seem to be pre spawn yet we have boated some that are spawned out as well. But it’s a strange season this time around. You will find the bass in most all the same places as years past no changes ie sand cut and the brush point areas. As always senkos, grubs, jerkbaits, and tubes will always work, we haven’t been throwing much yet for spinnerbaits but we did have a fair top water bite going a few times on calm mornings. As for Walleye most areas have been pretty dirty so far this year and have kept a lot of folks from even bothering to try for them. That is one big weakness the bay has at times during the year. Lots of rain and lots of the wrong wind can make for a muddy mess at times in different areas around the bay. And it’s always when the walleye bite should be going strong, we get a bunch of rain and the creeks wash in a ton of red clay silt and then you get red water that stays for weeks at a time and screws everything in those areas!.... Don’t get me wrong a few fish can still be had but you will put in your time for them when she’s that dirty! We will just have to wait and see how the shallow bite turns out this spring and that’s all there is too it this year!. Pike are still hitting well most days soaking dead smelt is always tops in these parts for spring pike. But fish can still be caught on stickbaits and spoons too, not to mention big flys as well. Look from 2ft out too around 10ft yet. As for trout and salmon guys are doing well near shore from Saxon to Bayfield find the warm water and you will find fish. 20 to 40 seems to be a good depth from what I have been hearing from most boats. Again stickbaits and spoons are the norm right now for most boats. Some have been catching fish with down riggers and flasher set up’s as well. Not really my game this time of year just giving ya the scoop from buddys that fish that game this time of year. As for us it’s a big Bass and walleye game for the next few weeks yet, If your looking at a trip yet this month and want to hook some big Bass or walleye and pike give me a shout and we will see what we can do for you or your group. And as always check out our LL partner page and give us a like on Face book to get daily reports for Chequamegon bay Good luck and tight lines Chequamegon

Fin Bender, yes, you can do great in the Bay right now with shallow running baits. I found the warmest water I could find in the Bay and trolled that on Sunday with my kid and we got 13 in the boat. Deepest running bait was down 10' ft. Good luck!
