My wife and i will be staying on catfish lake all next week. Hows the fishing report? Whats hitting? What should we expect to really catch? We will go for panfish but id also like to get some walleyes or muskies or northern or smallies.  Any particular bait or jigs? 


Thanks!

Might want to try around the island in Cranberry. That's where my friend got this one last Sunday, on an Eddie bait. 48". By himself, 80+ yo, with a bass net, put head in net, scooped the rest into boat, took 20 minutes reviving fish to make sure he was good to go. Not sure how long he took to revive himself. For rest of report, he's gotten into some northerns, nice smallies, and lots of perch.

I will be coming up in two weeks and was wondering how active the walleye are? Should I fish Catfish or Cranberry?

Fished 2-3 June all day. Fished all over the lake also cranberry. Very slow-oooooo would be a under statement fish scattered, Fished lake many years, this time was the worst. I belive theres way to many northers in this lake. Talked to other fishermen at the dock All were very disappointed. Very little weed growth for June. they did spray for weeds. This past month!!! I read last season on some lakes when they spayed for weed there were dead fish after because they were close to shore for spawning. Hope the pesticide isn't connected to the fish. Worried

I'd think twice before driving out Jason..this is a weird year up here as we have nowhere near as much ice as we had last year at this time. .. maybe by next Thursday the 8th , but I would need at least 12" of good solid ice before I drove my truck out there.. be safe..
