Rain, not as bad as South Central Wisconsin, but enough to affect fishing participation even in the Northwoods.  While not the volume of rain as down south, the after affects of some of the electrical storms put a couple of the morning bites off.  Yet, once things settled there were some bright spots to the fishing. 
 
Musky:  Good-Very Good – Top-water action has remained hot as tail baits (Whopper Ploppers, Pace Maker - Tally Wacker style) have been producing.  Spinnerbaits and bucktails with large, fluted blades to lift the lures over weed flats.  Surprisingly, quite a few reports of Musky taking suckers, despite the relatively warm water.  Pink baits, blades on body, have been particularly effective this past week. 
 
Northern Pike:  Good-Very Good – Spinnerbaits, chatterbaits and Mepps #3:#4 Comets, as well as 4” swimbaits, worked over weed beds.  Chubs and suckers on jigs or under floats for the more relaxed angler producing nice Pike in the mid 30” range. 
 
Smallmouth Bass:  Good – Work gravel humps or sandgrass flats using drop-shot rigs of 3” Gulp minnows or Dartshogs.  Also, a good bite on larger fish on top-water.  Watch for feeding Gills then race to within casting distance.  Reports or 4#+ fish! 
 
Largemouth Bass:  Good-Fair – Bite seems to have fallen off a bit.  Best with more subtle fare such as Wacky Worming and Ned rigs. 
 
Crappie:  Fair-Good – Small tubes, Crappie Thumpers, Road Runners or 1-2” twister tails on a 1/64 – 1/32 oz jig.  Work top sections of weeds at deepest point before breaks. 
 
Yellow Perch:  Fair-Good – Best around drowned wood, cribs 8-14’ of water ½ crawler or piece of frozen softshell. 
 
Bluegill:  Fair – Better when weather clears.  Small jigs, Mini-mites tipped with Waxies, Thunderbugs or worms.  Better Gills suspended off weed edges of 12-16’. 
 
Walleye:  Fair – Mixed reports from poor to “decent”.  Best on leeches and crawlers along drop-offs of 12-18’.  After dark, a bit shallower 8-12’ using lighted slip-bobbers and 3-5” suckers or chubs. 
 
Should be a time of cooling temps and lowering water levels.  The flowages have dropped, but recent flooding down in Southern Wisconsin could mean water may start to be held back up here.  Warm days have kept surface temps in lower 70’s, some upper 60’s reported.   Forecast for rain early in week leading to cooler, cloudy weather by week’s end.

Have been fishing a lake very close to home the last few days. This lake gets good in september and october. We caught lots of walleyes and it didn't matter what live bait was used. Minnows , leeches , or crawlers all worked well. Adam, Heidi and Steve enjoyed their time up north and the fish cooperated.

Could be the smoky haze from Canada fires or maybe the fish just a little hungrier.  Either way, fishing has improved across the board in the Lakeland area, though some species more so than others. 
 
Smallmouth Bass:  Very Good – Rock/gravel humps of 18-28’ and even some isolated humps with sparse weeds in 10-14’ holding nice Smallies.  Drop-shotting 3” Senkos, 2 ½ - 3” Gulp Minnows, 3 ½” Jackall Dartshogs and 3” Crosstails as well as 4” Chompers drop-shot worms over the gravel.  Ned rig TDR’s, Wacky worming (4”) and swimming 3” Keitech worms around weeds.  Lots of nice 14-18” fish with a few pushing 20”. 
 
Largemouth Bass:  Very Good – Warm, flat water has made for great top-water action.  Whopper Ploppers, Matzou Tornado Tails, Pompador Jrs., Zara Spooks and Lunker Frogs early and late in day.  In between, casting spinnerbaits, lipless cranks, square billed cranks and pre-rigged plastic worms worked over weed flats.  Wacky worming Senko’s and Yum Dingers and swimming 4” power worms behind 1/8 oz mushroom jig heads also popping lots of Bass fish to 22 ½” this week. 
 
Bluegill:  Very Good – Work the deepest weeds available for the largest Gills!  Thunderbugs, leeches, worms or small 1” plastic tails on light 1/32 – 1/80 oz jigs.  Good #’s of 7-8 ½” Gills, some 9+” mixed in.  Larger, deep clear lakes best. 
 
Northern Pike:  Very Good – Baits with blades (spinnerbaits, chatter, Mepps style) all good.  Fast moving swimbaits in 4” sizes or plastic Bluegill imitation best.  A 41 ½” was caught and released this week. 
 
Crappie:  Fair-improving – Showing up more in tall, narrow leafed cabbage beds of 8-14’.  Cast tiny tinsel jigs on small beetle spins to locate.  Then cast small minnows under bobbers. 
 
Musky:  Fair – Better action on top-water this week, bucktails, spinnerbaits also working well.  Cloud, (smoke?) seem to be improving day time action. 
 
Yellow Perch:  Fair-Good – Sandgrass flats of 18-28’ using frozen soft shells (yes, they are legal) or ½ crawlers on Lindy style rigs or under slip-floats.  On Flowages, key on drowned wood using same baits but more stationary to stay in feeding zone. 
 
Walleye:  Fair-Improving – Cloud cover helped the day time bite as anglers using crawlers or leeches over sandgrass in 18-26’ found fish.  On deeper lakes, redtailed chubs or crawlers drew bites on rock/gravel humps of 22-34’. 
 
Very little wind most days, but cloudy/hazy skies helping.  Water temps running about 77-79 degrees on average, bit warm for this time in August.  Typically, a few cooler nights would have turned a Sugar Maple here and there by now, but everything green.

Hard to get many fishing reports when anglers can hardly get out to fish thanks to the rain and lightning we’ve been getting! 
 
Rains have been heavy (4” on Friday) causing lake and Flowage levels to rise.  Earlier in week, a four day stretch of east winds, that confounded anglers, was followed by a short reprieve before Friday let loose with the Monsoons! 
 
A few decent reports have drizzled (HA! Comedy!) in, but most trips have been cancelled over Father’s Day weekend due to the electric storms. 
 
Largemouth Bass:  Good-Fair – When able, top-water action good towards evening.  Wacky worming in the day. 
 
Northern Pike:  Good-Fair – Spinner baits, chatter baits and 3 ½ - 4 ½” swim baits. 
 
Walleye:  Fair – Tough bites, but a few good reports from anglers night fishing with lighted slip-floats after dusk using Jumbo-XL leeches. 
 
Smallmouth Bass:  Fair – X-Raps and Husky Jerks along 7-10’ rocky breaks best. 
 
Crappie – Bluegill - Perch:  Fair -  Few anglers in this weather.  Once it breaks – small leeches and thunderbugs for Gills and Perch.  Small beetle spins, minnows for Crappies. 
 
Musky:  Fair-Poor – Quiet on the Musky front – unless you’re not trying.  Top-water drawing some strikes.  Size 700 Series bucktails, jointed shallow running cranks. 
 
It’s hard to be enthusiastic when you can’t even get on the water.  May take a day or two for things to settle this week.  We’ve received a lot of water in a short amount of time!

So much for our “hot” summer weather.  With night temps dropping to low 50’s to even upper 40’s, and day time highs in the mid 70’s, water temps dropped, and along with it some of our “hot” fishing.

Bluegill:  Good-Very Good – Nice catches with some nice Gills of 9-10” included.  Tiny tube jigs, small hair jigs and Mini Mite jigs tipped with waxies, as well as small leeches, fished along Coontail edges of 14-18’.  Gills suspending in top half of edges.

Crappie:  Good – Tall narrow leaf cabbage patches holding Crappies, as well as pilings and boat houses near deep water.  Deep, drowned wood on Flowages in 14-18’ producing big slabs to 14” on medium Fatheads and the shiners found in mixed bait.

Largemouth Bass:  Good– Top-water action surprisingly good despite cooler temps.  Prop baits such as Torpedos and small Whopper Ploppers.  Creeper baits also producing.  Afternoons for chatter baits and spinner baits.  Texas rigging creature baits and Wacky worming a given.

Northern Pike:  Good – While spinner baits such as Boonies and chatter baits always good, top Pike of week came on a Johnson Silver Minnow.  Four inch swim baits also productive.

Smallmouth Bass:  Fair – Just as action heating up, this species took a dive.  Some decent action on tubes along deep Coontail edges and over sandgrass flats.

Yellow Perch:  Fair – Shallow bite died off by weeks end.  Still, some nice 9-10” fish using ½ crawlers on outside cabbage beds of 9-12’.

Musky:  Fair – Bucktails best choice right now.  Fluted blades that will raise bait over weeds.  Big spinner baits also good.

Walleye:  Fair – A few bright spots when weather worked in our favor.  Jig and crawler/leeches best.  Some success on minnows as waters cool.

Looks to be a week of stable weather.  Nights in mid 50’s, days mid to upper 70’s.  Hopefully, this will bring about some sustained patterns.
