Fishing has been very good in general since my last report, there were a couple of those days when most of the fish in the lake will take a bait if you get it in front of them and a couple where we thrashed a lot of water and structure types to come up with a mixed bag of fish.
I've been fishing mainly walleyes and perch, there is a really good population of perch in the flowage currently. They range considerably in size there is a big year class of fish a little small to make the cut but a lot of fish in the 10-12-1/2" range.
We've caught fish in a wide range of depths but most days have done better in shallow water in the 4-8' range. Fishing both wood cover, laid down logs and stumps in 4-8', and weed cover in the 4-5' depth .
Our bait of choice, rather the fishes, made a pretty abrupt change from fatheads to a half crawler.
The smallmouth action in shallow water is on right now, shorelines with boulders/gravel and mix of sand. We did surprisingly catch some nice ones in weeds yesterday.
Hope to have time to post a few pictures next day or two.
Have fun out there!
