Friday fished with Larry and Jim from fence lake. We did good and every one caught fish with Larry doing the best. Biggest walleye was 26.1/2 and no slots today. Looks like were getting less big fish with every day that goes by. All were caught in 8 to 12 foot on slit shot and Green hook with three on jig and plastic. Thanks Larry and Jim we all had fun.

Yes docks are in.  Lake level seems to be up 6" or so - the North Landing is a little easier (deeper) than usual.  Water temp Friday was 46 but has probably dropped over the weekend.

Someone told me that people were still ice fishing on this lake during the opener. Is this true? That's crazy if there is still ice and would put my plans on hold for this weekend as i was planning on taking the grandkids out on this lake! Can anyone confirm this for me?

FISHING REPORTS:

Another anticipated Opener has come and gone. The weather was great and the fishing was pretty good depending on the body of water. Here's where we seem to be right now from my experiences and reliable reports. The darker bodies of water, like the flowages and some reservation lakes, the water temps are near or at 50 degrees. A lot of the walleyes being caught are all spawned out. The bigger clearer lakes like Minocqua, Big and Little Saint Germain, Big and Little Arbor Vitae, have just lost their ice so their water temps are in the low 40's still. The walleyes there seem to be in the middle of the spawn or just getting at it. The smaller lakes like Mid, Little John and Arrowhead, Lost and Found, the water temp is in the mid to upper 40's and the walleyes are right in the middle of the spawn. Expect these conditions to gradually move forward in the spawn over the next week or two as the water temps continue to rise. If you want walleyes now get to those bodies of water that the temps are the highest on as the males should be feeding after the spawn and they will soon be followed by those bigger females. The larger minnows and baits seem to be working the best.

In the meantime the pike have been pretty active. Small or big, they are coming on stronger each day. Today we actually caught half of them on crawlers, as well as XL Fats and Blacktail chubs. When we used the crawlers a few perch got in on the action, too.

The forecast for fishing is looking really good. The walleyes are about a week away from becoming very active on most lakes. Get out there in the evening, if you can, with a Fire Tiger Rapala, casting those rocky shorelines. Of course many other baits will work as well but the FT Original never goes out of style.

A quick note about the Dewey Catchem and How bait shops this year. We have basically shut down our wholesale bait operations and moved that pricing into the bait shops in Minocqua and Arbor Vitae. For example, you can now get jumbo night crawlers for only $5 for 2 doz and $2.75 for 1 doz. And these are all in Fat n Sassy bedding. Another example is $2 for a scoop of crappie minnows. And these are everyday prices. Plus, if you join our BAIT BUCKS program, which is free, you can save even more. For every $100 you spend over time you get a $10 credit. There are a few exceptions but not many. We invite you to take advantage and sign up today.

Get out there and have some fun folks. It's gonna get better every day now. And if you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong!

Thinking about fishing Trout for Lakers mid-May, any idea where to target them?  Deep?  Shallows?....etc.  Thanks in advance!
