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.

Ran out between the storms for 2-2.5 hours and boated a handful... lost 3 or 4 by the boat but seemed slow, given the weather drastically pounding away this weekend....


Still managed more smallmouth than anything, fish were deeper than last time I was out... What was 5-8 FOW, I was finding to be 10-13 FOW as far as catching went. Plastics, swim baits, not so much the quicker crankbaits any more.

Fished a few lakes in Oneida Co. last week. Tons of fun catching many largemouth and sm on topwater under docks and boats. They were hitting rubber too but top water was the ticket. Muskie were slow and we had 5 follows and no hits. Mayfly hatch was starting and is now in full bloom on 200-400 acre lakes. Once we get consistent weather, muskie will turn on!

Lots of east and south east winds, unusual for our area.  That, and some high barometer days have made for less than stellar fishing the last part of this past week.  Still, fishing not bad, just not as good as expected. 
 
Bluegill:  Very Good-Good -  Small leeches and thunderbugs best in shallows as Gills that had set-up when water was warmer are still hanging on beds.  Be kind on these fish, their success at spawning will lead to your success for years down the road! 
 
Yellow Perch:  Good – Cruising in loose schools in cabbage flats of 6-9’.  Medium fatheads, leeches beaver tails on 1/16 oz jigs or under slip-floats. 
 
Northern Pike:  Good – Jig and minnow, spinner baits, #3 Mepps, 3 ½” swim baits 
 
Largemouth Bass:  Good – Some still bedding, others in 6-10’ weds.  Wacky worming, Ned rigs and Carolina rigging creature baits. 
 
Smallmouth Bass:  Good-Fair – Some beauties this week up to 20”.  Wacky worming and similar subtle presentations to entice reluctant fish. 
 
Walleye:  Good-Fair – High skies and east wind not our friend.  Leeches, ½ crawlers and chubs in and along weed edges of 6-12’. 
 
Musky:  Fair – Not a lot of reports of movement.  Smaller bucktails, 6-7” twitch baits, 6-7” jointed cranks. 
 
Crappie:   – Scattered weed fish. 
 
Once this weather pattern leaves our area and we get some warmer temps and west wind, look for things to get back to normal for June.

I'm currently sitting on my dock and the mayflies are just starting to hatch. I'm surrounded by surfacing crappie, bluegill and bass feeding off of the bounty.  If I weren't headed for Canada in the morning, I'd be cashing in on this! First bite on the mayfly hatch is almost like shooting fish in a barrel.  But I'm just enjoying the show and the ploop, ploop, ploop!

Did the female crappie go back into the shallows to spawn or are they absorbing their eggs?  We only caught small male crappies in the shallows on Memorial Day Weekend.  The bigger females were out suspended over the deepest parts of the lake.  I kept enough for a meal and every one of them still had eggs.   The surface temps in the shallows were 15 degrees above where they typically spawn that weekend.

It was a miserable Sunday morning June 3rd but we managed 17 fish in the 2 hours that we hung out before returning home to Milwaukee... I ended the show with this beaut and it absolutely made the rain worth it
