Starting to get pretty green out there in areas.... Not too bad though, I've seen it a lot worse.

Phillips Area Fishing Report.

Despite having to fish between some nasty weather fishing was pretty good over the weekend, I had the pleasure to take a couple of families out last weekend with younger children and had a blast. We were targeting Walleye and Crappie. Because the children were younger we went tried to simplify the fishing by using slip bobbers and live bait. We were targeting the Crappie shallow and the Walleye in a little deeper water and using small fatheads for bait. At the end of both days the families took home a couple meals of fish each.

Ross's Sport Shop customers are reporting Walleye action to be good with mostly smaller fish being caught. Look for the Walleye to be around the first major break in the lake or about 10 to 15 feet of water. Reports of Crappie being scattered between shallow and deep water are coming in with most anglers targeting the shallow water bite with plastics or minnows under bobbers. Bluegill are also being targeted in the shallow wood and new weed growth.

Pictured is a young client with a nice crappie that she caught and also another young client Zach with his families catch for the afternoon

Limits on all lakes in the Ceded Territory changed this year, Most of the Chains of Lakes became one body of water and most lakes have a 3 fish limit. The one over 14" is new for us this season. Make sure you check at the boat landing of any northern Wisconsin lakes before you fish this year because the limits did change.

As far as the over 14" goes. I had clients out over the weekend and we release walleye up to 21" in the chain and a boat next to us caught a 27. True there is a lot of little ones but there are bigger fish as well.

The limit for the entire Chain as a whole is 3 Walleye no size limit but only one may be over 14".

Is the "only one over 14" new? I don't recall seeing that in the regs before. Although, you're lucky to catch one over 14. ;-)

Unless posted otherwise at launches or in special regulations that came out on 5-1-15 posted on DNR web site. It is daily limit per body of water of three, 15 minimum size protected slot of 20 to 24 one over 24 inches. There are a lot of different regs for different waters so go to DNR site under fishing and special regulations are posted in a couple of places. Be careful as body of water is considered whole chain if listed as one water in regs I.E. Chippewa river by goes from dells pond in Eau Claire to old Abe Flowage including Lake Wissota you are allowed only 3 a day for all. You have to drop your three fish at truck go to a different lake to get the last two eyes for total daily limit. Chippman

What is the bag limit currently set to for walleye? Last year, it was either 1 or 2 when we got there, but went up during our stay.

General Phillips Area Fishing Report,

What a difference a year makes.

Last season we were wondering if our favorite lake would be ice free for the fishing opener and this year some lakes have had open water for a month already and the walleye finished their spawn weeks ago. Most anglers that hit the water for last weekend's opener were reporting some good fishing. Crappie and other panfish were moving shallow and were easily caught on plastics, worms and minnows.

Look for the fish to be anywhere where there is some wood in areas with high sunlight. I like using small plastics like twisters, tubes and sliders on a small 1/32 ounce jig under a float for these shallow water areas.

Walleye action was great but they seem to be scattered in the water column from reports coming into Ross's. Some anglers reported catching walleye in shallow flats using stickbaits like Rapalas and Storms. Other anglers are reporting catching good amounts of walleyes in 5 to 15 feet of water using Bottom Feeder Tackle Jigs tipped with Berkley Gulp or fatheads.

Northern action was great with most of the pike being taken in shallow water near last seasons weed edges. Twitching Husky Jerks and casting spoons or spinnerbaits was getting most of the action. Bright colors like Firetiger patterns were topping the list of pike catching colors this early in the season.

If your looking to come north for opener, the ice is off this year! Walleye spawning activity in most of the area flowages peaked early last week and crappie moved shallow, this weeks cold weather should push fish back a little.
