More of the best clients and new friends.

This family, as repeat clients have a ball in the boat. Catching fish, laughing and sharing family memories. 

All fish around 8 ft deep. Water temp in the 70's.

Water temps have risen rapidly the last few days as summer is in full swing.

As always, stay positive, think clearly, do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

Was out the other day with Jon and Dan for Walleyes all day on a big lake. The fish were on fire most of the morning. We caught 8 on slip bobbers and a leech and lost count on how many we got on jig and crawler, some casting some back trolling but it was fun. Fish were in 21 to 27 fow all over the spots I fish. Thanks guys hope to see you next year. I still have 2 days open this week and more this summer.

Fished with two great guys Monday Bob and Jay all day in the heat and 12 mph wind in the afternoon. We started with slip boobers in the morning, moved to back trolling in the afternoon, leeches on the bobbers and crawlers, 2/3 of a crawler on 3/16 jigs. Hot colors on the jigs Red, Orange and Pink is what we used. We had 6 or 7 Walleyes on bobbers 10 or 11 on jigs one was short we kept only 6 keepers  1 over the 24'' release  the rest were slots all in 21 to 25 fow . Thanks guys it was rough out there but a great day. I have many days open this summer still for Walleyes September and October is big crappies for me. Thanks

Fished several lakes last weekend.  In my opinion, a good chunk of bluegill are post spawn or just finishing.  The majority of my usual panfish lakes were busts.  Found a quiet lake that gave me decent bluegill action.  Crappie were feeding heavy out in the deeper water.  Also caught a few post spawn bluegills when casting for crappie.

I always take guide/bait shop posts with a grain of salt.  Usually full of good content, but they seem to stretch the hot bite longer than it really is.  Often times, if I read of a good bite happening on here then I'm already too late to the party.

Kurt,

Colonies of bluegill beds?  Are they not done spawning yet?  I was fishing in northern Douglas county last Friday and gills were done, off the beds in deeper water of weed edges.  No peeing and females empty.

Following some cool mornings in the 40’s to keep lake surface temperatures down, a heat wave has moved up to the Northwoods pushing lake temps, and the activities that go with warmer water, up!  Temps cresting into the nineties early in the week followed by highs in mid to upper 80’s will bring most surface temps into the 70’s.   This will advance bug hatches and spawning activity from fish that haven’t yet.

Bluegill:  Very Good – Lots of “colonies” of beds showing up.  Anglers using poppers, as well as dry flys, having fun in the shallows.   Tiny 1” tubes, Mini Mites and small leeches and worms hard for the little fighters to resist.  It is up to us to resist taking too many of these fish.   Concentrate on the “fun” and let these fish nest, reproduce and supply years of activity at this time.  There are plenty of other times for harvest.

Largemouth Bass:  Very Good-Good – The warming water is right up their alley.  Activity best early and late in the day with weather like this.  Twitchbaits, Sluggos, pre-rigs and 3” swimbaits in the shallows as well as top-water lures.   Mid-morning through the afternoons go with Wacky Worms, Ned rigs and Tokyo rigs to get into the weed cover.

Smallmouth Bass:  Good-Very Good – Surprisingly there were still some nesters on the larger lakes over the weekend.  This could change quick with heat.  Ned rigs, Wackys and tubes are tops.  Jerkbaits and shallow cranks in the early AM, then outside weed edges after that.

Yellow Perch:  Good – Action in weeds on beaver tails and medium leeches.  Schooling up a bit, but never tight in shallower cover.   Signs of molting craws means Perch taking advantage of small crayfish and dragonfly larvae.

Musky:  Good – Actually, very good if you’re 15 yr old Kaiden Schrieber of Naperville who boated a 50” beauty on the Flambeau Chain over the weekend.  Not saying which lake or what on, and usually don’t mention angler’s name – but C’MON, THAT’S A BEAST!  Other reports from anglers moving fish in the evenings on top-water.   Action good, tough to see follows with all the recent wind.  Bucktails tops!

Walleye:  Good-Fair – Bite was good when you found schools but starting to see it fade as waters move into low 70’s.  Oddly, some of the best action coming late morning to early afternoon.  Wind blown weed edges best using leeches, crawlers coming into play.

Northern Pike:  Good-Fair – Pike action is slower than expected.  4” swimbaits, ¼ oz spinnerbaits over cabbage in 7-12’.  Jigging chubs for Walleye in weeds is picking up an occasional Pike.

Crappie:  Fair – Could have been the wind, but fewer reports of late.  Just tough to pick up these light biters on windy days.

While some March Brown mayfly hatches have been noted, the big “Evil” Hexagenia hatches are still on their way.  A few skins have shown so far.  Rising water temps could speed up this hatch and make for a few miserable days on your favorite lake.  Dragonflies are hatching, that and the wind is helping to make what was a bad mosquito season more bearable.

We saw the same thing on one system while muskie fishing. Sorta wondered if the esox were munching on flailing panfish before they went belly up and floated, and that's why they were uncooperative and turning off 10' from the boat. That system has had pretty willing biters for us in the past. Nice sized gills too, definitely keepers, most of them.
