Bluegill - Fair: Bluegill are starting to be found in deeper water as they move off their beds. Leaches/worms and a simple bobber setup have proven to be effective.
The day bite trolling for walleye in the area has been very slow. The panfish/perch bite has been very good lately. The extended forecast calls for continued warm temperatures with highs in the 70s and 80s. Water temperatures have risen significantly with most being in the 70s - 80s. This quick increase has been tough on fish that have been already stressed due to spawning activity. This has caused some noticeable mortality of some fish.
Try fishing for panfish in 8ft or less as well as around docks/hoists. Anglers slowly trolling weed lines have also proven to be successful catching a variety of species. The current water temperature is 77°.
