Bass beginning their stupid phase. Been catching largies on every outing I've targeted them. The real fun should start in about a week.
Gill bite in between the spring feeding frenzy and spawn. Just waiting to get pummeled by bed fisherman once their on them. Water extremely clear most places which makes them skittish. I have better luck fishing them when the water is stirred up.
There is a huge class of three to four inch crappie's in this lake right now. God I wish there was a minimum size limit on them. I'll harp again it's ridiculous that those fish are being kept.
Haven't fished with minnows this year yet but have caught a couple of walleye on other stuff. Size is down anyway so walleye fishing isn't what it was like during the premier years of 2008 to about the spring of 2015. Haven't caught a walleye over twenty five since then. Again there is a larger class of sub legal walleye but they will all go home once they hit fifteen.
Good luck out this weekend. The lakes will be packed with the 80 degree weather coming. It's been a great spring of fishing without the crowds of pleasure boaters and ski team. Rat.
