Water temp rose from 64 degrees to a whopping 81 in a matter of 5 days with 5 straight days over 90. Bass best very early 430 til 8ish then again around sunset. Panfish didn't know what was going on crappies on deep wood, then next day floating out in middle of Flynn. Small walleyes trolling twin bear evenings. Got skis or tubes? Need to kill time between 10am and 7pm.
How has the fishing been since it warmed up? I'll be up there a week from tomorrow for 9 days with the family.
I haven't fished the chain since early ice. All I can say is stay away from Busky Bay. There are many, many ice shacks out there so way overfished there. Many other spots would still be good. The cold has put a damper on the aggressiveness of the bite everywhere. Find a good weed bed at about 20 foot and you should find fish, especially on a dropoff.
Can anyone provide a recent fishing report for the chain?
Wishful Fishing accept my friend request and I can PM you
Delta1, would you be willing to share what bait you used, area of the chain you fished, shallow or deep? I respect if you don't want to be too specific. ??
Went out on the chain yesterday. It was an awesome day, caught at least 100 fish. Caught more keepers than I could keep. It was a good day. I haven't had a day like that out on the chain in a long time.
Definately fishing has slowed down for panfish. Catching a few decent crappie wind drifting right down the middle of flynn, better on cloudy days. Large mouth hitting top waters hard all over though from around 6 til just after sunset many 3-4lbers., just need deeper weeds and a calmer water. Anybody ventured out to some of the smaller lakes in the area?
Thanks so much for the feedback - yes it does help.
works really well plain when waves are good sized letting the waves do all the work. do tip with a whole crappie minnow on calmer gentler breezes. fish are more agrressive with a minnow and hold on for longer bite, but i seem to get a lot of quicker hits without, miss a ton of bites. hope this helps good luck.
