Memorial weekend provided lots of great fishing opportunities for those that got outside to spend some time on the water.  The early weekend this year coincided with an important warm up in water temperature, which got fishing interesting.

Musky:  Very Good – The season opened up on Saturday with lots of action as anglers reported multiple fish days of 4, 5, 6, and even 7 Skie days!  Small bucktails with the Rizzo Wizz (Now Wizard), #5 Mepps, 500 series Buchertails, 5 and 6” Cranes and small Smity jerks accounting for a lot of fish.  Even small and medium sized suckers produced well. Reports of lots of 36-42” being boated with the largest C&R a 49” by a Walleye angler.  Its rare that Musky takes top billing in our multi-species report in May, but this weekend was exceptional!

Crappie:  Very Good – Timing is everything and the Memorial Weekend anglers hit it just right!   Crappies moved in to pair up and bed and provided great action for anglers.  Gapen Fresh Water Shrimp below tiny floats and small minnows on a small thin wire Aberdeen hook with no weight below the float scored lots of action.   Small leeches also worked well when fishing snaggy areas as they stay on the hook better.  Casting tiny tubes, Mini Mites and Pinkys for those who prefer to fish bobberless did their share of catching.

Largemouth Bass:  Very Good – Cruising the warm shallows.  LMB taking 3-4” Wacky worms, square bill cranks and spinner baits.  Some top-water action reported on the warm afternoons.  Lots of Bass taking baits meant for Crappies.

Northern Pike:  Very Good – Swim baits, #3 Mepps, spinner baits, and chatter baits all producing.   Jig and chub combos worked through 5-9’ cabbage a great start.

Smallmouth Bass:  Good-Very Good – Still staging, but up next as water temps climb.  Lipless cranks and suspending twitch baits best over 10-14’ staging areas, just off the spawning sites.  Leeches on a 1/16 – 1/8 oz jig working well.  Just remember, its catch and release only until June 20th.

Walleye:  Good – Post spawn feeding going on.  Target green cabbage using light jigs to offer leeches or dace.  Casting stick baits over and through same areas at dusk very productive.

Bluegill:  Good – Lots of Gills warming in shallows.  Thunderbugs, small leeches and worms, but also small plastics effective on these active fish.  Use small, but weighted bobber to make long cast into 2’ shallows.

Yellow Perch:  Good-Fair – Most reports from anglers picking up incidental catches while Walleye, Bluegill or Crappie fishing.  Medium fatheads and leeches best.

Lots of anglers on the lakes this weekend, boat landings were over flowing and fish biting.  Remember to practice selective harvest!  It’s been a difficult past couple of months, but not the end of the world!  Look towards the future and release fish to ensure good fishing for the next time up.

Good catch, Fireman Ken!

This had me baffled, but you are correct.  I can see his John's reports only when signed in.  Strange!

Same thing here too.   I contacted John(Anglers Choice) and told him and did the same with L/L.  

It only seems to be when I am not logged in.  If I log-in then John's reports are there.

YES, I have noticed the same thing. Also wrong photos are being posted.

Lake-Link's server may have been hacked. They need to check into it.

Back to Crappie and Gills again this AM before the rain set in.

As the spawn continues all over Vilas County the bite is staying very consistent. We are only using plastics and doing very well.

There are others using minnows and they are also doing very well. 

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

God Bless

Fished crappies last two week ends on several bodies of water. Lakes that were great last weekend were not this weekend. Fished two new bodies of water this weekend. One was a carry in only then a portage to another little lake. Constant action on crappies average size about 10”. Few LM, perch and BG mixed in. Don’t know the temperature. Yesterday hit a new body of water. Average size was about the same. Temp there was 68*. All crappies caught were in less than 2’ of water.

Back to Crappie and Gills this AM, day 2.

These fantastic clients again produced very well on another local lake. The Crappie were biting well and the Gills were even better. Some nice sized ones as well. All on plastics, no minnows.

Multiple fish caught and released. Many, many lakes are on the bite all over Vilas County Wisconsin.

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

God Bless
