Fished a sheltered inlet for the last hour of light last night. Looking for crappie. No crappie but did get 6 walleye, 2 dinks, 2 just under the slot and 2 slot fish. All caught using crappie jigs under floats. Glow green the best color. Warmer weather in the forecast should get them biting again soon. 


Good luck

Struggled with the weather all weekend. Finally got out Sunday morning. We headed to a sheltered area of the lake. We fished a small stretch along the shore by paradise shore road. We managed a few nice crappies on slip bobbers with minnows in 10-12 FOW. We had our lines set a few feet off the bottom. Also got a small walleye. At about 9:30AM the fishing died down.

I fished the jump end this past weekend. It wasn't my most productive area, but the flat just to the south of that was good. Sheltered areas where the water temps were up a few degrees were best. I found areas that held a tremendous amount of small baitfish. Those areas were key.

Walleye should be shallow 4 to 8 fow.

I'm heading up this weekend. Have the walleyes moved from the river area? We typically fish the channel where the Jump comes in. Thanks for the help.

5 of us fished the opener and managed to keep 20 walleyes and a dozen crappies over Saturday and a few hours Sunday morning. Fish were pretty active Saturday morning early but continued to bite less frequently throughout the weekend. Jig and minnow in 7-10 feet of water was the best tactic. Chartreuse and gold jigs were the most consistent producers.

Pretty much have an identical report as paneye.  We caught a decent walleye (wife had a 20"er) on Thursday night while crappie fishing, but only managed to catch a few dinks after the opener on Saturday.  Don't think that heat on Friday helped matters at all.  Still managed to bring home a few nice crappie for the frying pan, so the weekend wasn't a total bust by any means.  Had a great time over the weekend!

Fished Friday and the opener. Apparently the walleye had a calendar. Friday the walleye were plentiful, Saturday not so much. Still managed to get a few walleye and some nice crappie. All fish were caught in 3-8 FOW on minnows. Marked fish in deeper water, but they wouldn't bite. Slow presentations were the key. Chartreuse or green were the best colors. 

Good luck

Fished a little more Friday evening and Saturday. Fishing slowed as the weekend progressed. Saturday morning was the best. Cold front and increasing wind shut down the bite. Managed a half dozen large male crappie. Let all of the females go, they're close to releasing eggs.

Walleye were really biting. Got many in with the crappie, some big spawned out females and a bunch of keeper sized males. All are swimming, hopefully on the same pattern for next weekend. A few of the females were quite large (26+ inch).

Fish were in 4-7 FOW in pockets of warmer water (52-53) the overall lake temp is down from a few days ago.

Crappie minnows below a float, small spoons or jigs. Best cots chartreuse and gold

Good luck out there

Not a very nice evening with a front going through, but I did manage to drop a line. Crappie remain staging near or in shallower water, but not that actively feeding. Walleye are feeding in the same areas, the opener should be good for walleye. Hopefully the bite will pick up as the weather stabilizes and warms a little. All fish swimming today.

Crappie are moving shallow. Managed to catch many and kept a few for the pan. Minnows and small plastics under a bobber worked best. Got several walleye and a few cats as well. Looks like it should be good for the opener. Fishing was much better before the front went through. A little stable weather will start the bite again. All fish caught in 4-7 FOW
