Well this will be a short one. Too busy fishing and then working in the shop. Even with the hard cold front that came thru here a couple of days ago the walleye fishing has stayed strong. But our best bait has been 1/2 a crawler dragged on the bottom on green weed edges. Water temps mid 50s.
Depending on the lake the crappie bite has picked up also. Wait for the end of the day in the warmest water for your best bite. Plastics have been supreme.
Smallmouth bass have been chasing baits still away from their future beds. They'll be going on soon, depending on the lake.
Bluegills are just starting the stage to get ready to prepare their beds. You can't beat a crawler chunk on a 1/32 oz jig.
Northern pike, they're everywhere right now.
So get out there. This should be the week you should have been up here for when you came the week after!
Our store hours are M-T-W-Th 6am to 7pm, Fr 6am to 10pm, Sat 6am to 7pm and Sunday 6am to 5pm.
Our minnows all come direct from trappers in central Wisconsin. Right now we just have crappie minnows, large fatheads, XL fatheads (Tuffys), Redtail chubs, Blacktail chubs, River Shiners, Northern minnows and Walleye Suckers. We have plenty of jumbo night crawlers from Canada, along with Jumbo panfish worms and wax worms. As always, crawlers are available in 1dz, 2dz, 100ct and by the flat (500 ct) in dirt or bedding. And we sell waxies in bulk tubs, too. And of course we got lbs and lbs of leeches, mostly large and jumbo right now.
