Headed up to Pine Point this weekend, just wondering if anyone is willing to report on any adverse effects of the recent storms/ rain. Thank You

Fished a few hours Friday afternoon and then again Saturday evening after the wind finally died down a bit.

Targeted gills and found them. They were very shallow, 1-2 fow right up against the shoreline. Caught many that were keeping size, but only kept 3 larger ones for the pan. Some of the best bluegill fishing I've had on Holcombe in years in terms of size with the biggest being over 9" and many being over 8. SMB and perch were biting just a few feet further from shore than the gills.  Everything came on worms under a bobber set about 12" down. A small glow jig seemed to make a pretty big difference. Water clarity was very good were we got the most fish.

Got out a few time over Memorial Day Weekend. Saturday morning tried deeper areas of river channel 11-14 FOW. Caught one small walleye and blue gill  around 9:30am fishing slowed.

Saturday night we tried where the Jump comes in to the main lake. We pitched jigs and caught around 10 walleyes kept a few 12 -13 inch fish. Had two in the slot around 16 inches. Nightcrawlers also produced, but not as much

Sunday with the wind and threat of rain we fished off the dock. We caught a few more smaller walleye and crappies.

Haven't been out in a few days, last chance to fish was right after the cold front moved in.

Crappie were a little deeper (12-16 ft) and walleye are still relating to shallower cover and structures. Bluegills should start biting around the weekend.

Good luck

Heading up for the first time this year over Memorial Day. I know water will be high, my parents docks had some damage with logs coming down the Jump. Any reports on Walleye or Crappie bites?

Well almost time for the annual Opener Weekend trip to Holcombe. Will once again be staying at the Birch Creek campground. Last 2 years weather has been abnormally warm on opening weekend and the walleye didn't cooperate. Here's to hoping they do this year! Will report back with an actual report after the weekend. Good luck all.

Took our small fishing boat out on Sunday to see if it would run. We fished the northwest area of the lake. I got a nice 12 inch crappie on a slab rap. Boats around us were catching crappies on slip bobbers and minnows. 10-13 feet of water fish close to the bottom.

Glad to see open water. Fished for a few hours Sunday morning, beautiful.  Got a nice meal of perch.  Not much else biting yet where we fished. Crappie should start in a few days if weather holds
