Guided a good friend of mine today for some crappies today.  Ended up with a nice mess of fish. Kept 20 males and released all females.

Fish still in the shallows but not a lot of them. The spawning has is just about done for Crappies. Gills are in hot and heavy though. Some pretty nice size as well. Everything came on artificial with a little clip on bobber as shallow  as foot deep and up to 3 feet.

Solid Walleye fishing will be taking off here shortly. With the new weeds popping up they'll be in them.

Give me a call if you want to get out there!

Good luck, be safe and we'll see you on the water!

We fished the chip for a few hours Saturday evening. We caught just under 30 walleyes.  Most were between 13-15” with a few in the slot. Kept two deeply hooked fish for dinner. 

Also caught a few northerns and a 30” tiger musky. 

Bright Colored 1/16 oz jigs and large walleye minnows worked well. Medium sized minnows didn’t work as well. 

Fish were 15-25’ deep and relating to heavy structure. Not all structure held active fish, took a bit to locate them. 

Overall not a bad first outing on the chip.

Been guiding the last few days on the Big Chip. Been targeting walleyes early in the morning and crappies in the afternoon. The walleye bite is pretty much nil because there in a post spawn funk. That will change here in the next week or two.

The crappie bite on the other hand, has been pretty darn good! Been catching a lot of fish in the shallows with artificial.

Give me a call, email me or text to get in on this hot spring bite!

Good luck, be safe, and we'll see you on the water!

Guided Bill and his wife Barbara and their couple kids with a tag-along boat today.

Caught plenty of crappies and some pretty nice slot limit walleyes. Kept enough fish for a meal for Crappies. The crappies were getting tight to the shallows but pretty skittish. Had to back out aways to fish them. The usual Gulp and clip-on bobber a foot or two deep, did the trick.

Walleyes were shallow with slip Bobbers and leeches in the wood. 

One word of caution, be on the lookout for a lot of Driftwood and dead heads floating around out there since the water level is coming up dramatically.

The fishing is starting to heat up just like the weather finally! Give me a call and book your trip out there on this beautiful body of water!!

Good luck, be safe and we'll see you on the water!

Here you go, Lake-Link created a whole new thread to discuss panfish limits, so as to not clutter the fishing reports thread

What is your thoughts on blue gill limits? I think they could keep bluegill and crappie limits seperate, drop the crappie limit to 10-15 and leave a 25 limit on bluegills also. Maybe that would keep guys from just targeting crappies constantly then the crappies wouldn’t take such a big hit every year. Just curious on some thoughts on that?

Had a great day guiding some special clients for Mother's Day. My girlfriend and her daughter and my daughter all went out looking for Crappies today and found plenty. Most of them would not bite being that it's still pretty early, but, found some that would. Ended up with a nice meal non the less. Everything was taken on artificial and a little clip-on bobber 3 foot or less. Had to put on plenty of miles to find the fish but was a very enjoyable day.
