Fishing has been solid through June and the walleye and musky bites have been good. All species have completed the spawn (many long ago) with the exception of bluegills on a few lakes. The one seasonal cue we have not seen yet this year are the widespread bug hatches. While a few lakes have had flurries of bug hatch activity, many lakes had smaller hatches than normal so far or seem to have had little to no hatch yet. In lakes where the walleye bite suddenly becomes tough, it can be a good indication that the bottom is crawling with larvae. Also, stomach contents can speak volumes and let you know it may be time to switch lakes. Best producers for us have been fast moving plastics or casting crank baits. Artificials have produced far more aggressive strikes than live bait for us. It has been a great musky season so far for us, however, bait selection and lake selection have been more crucial factors than usual. Downsizing baits like Bucktails and jerkbaits have provided us with success on many trips when nothing else seemed to get attention. Despite the feast or famine type weather, we have put 39 muskies in the boat so far since Opener. Lots of great fishing ahead. Looking forward to the coming weeks.
