The northerns on Waska are crazy. Shallow running cranks in 5-7 ft of water works great. Also jigs and minnows produce northerns this past week. These fish are small, so sort through them. The same two methods are also producing walleyes. Sunfish and bass can be found on Glenwood side, but you will have to search for them. Miltona is still the hot area lake for walleyes. Also Emily and Mary are producing walleyes. Good luck and keep the nice weather coming!
Walleyes are hitting on Waska right at dark. Two methods would be shallow cranks or jigs and minnows. Late afternoon or morning is producing a lot of northerns in 5-7 ft. Reports of sunnies and bass being caught on Glenwood end of Waska. Emily,Miltona, Mary, and Reno also report walleyes are biting. Get out and enjoy this coming week of nice fall weather!
Weather once again hampers the good fall walleye bite on Waska and area lakes. The water temps are dropping which is good. On Waska walleyes and northerns are being taken on shallow running cranks in 5-7 feet of water. Still not much with jigs and minnows. Not much to report on bass and panfish. When the weather improves, so will the fishing!
Fall fishing continues to improve! Both walleye and big perch are biting on lakes Oliver, Big Stone, and Traverse. Minnewaska walleyes and northerns are being caught on shallow running cranks in 4-8 ft. of water. Not much yet with jigs and minnows on Waska, but that will change shortly. Other area lakes to check for walleyes are Emily, Long, Reno, and Mary.This is shaping up to be an excellent fall for walleyes, so go get 'em!
This has been worst week weather-wise all year. Weds. was only nice day all week. Lots of small northerns being caught on just about anything and at any depth. Bass and sunnies have slowed up. Some walleyes being caught in shallow next to bulrushes on shallow running crankbaits. Reports of walleyes being caught on Mary, Oliver, and Emily. Walleye fishing will improve as the water temp goes down. Hopefully, the weather improves this week!
Fishing this past week was good. The big problem was the wind. Walleyes can be had trolling shallow running cranks in 5-8 ft. of water. Have not heard much activity for walleyes using jigs and minnows. Lot of norherns being caught while fishing walleyes. These fish are small, so sort through them. Bass are in same area also. Sunfish have been hard to locate recently. Have fun and enjoy last holiday of the summer!
Water temps cooled this past week and fishing improved. Look for norherns shallow (5-7 ft). Troll with shallow running cranks. You will also pick up some bass and walleyes, especially at sunset and after. Sunnies still hard to locate, but once found, they are hitting. Our fall walleye patterns should be starting as days are now getting shorter. Good luck and have fun!
Short and sweet- this week was tough. Sunfish still in 12-14 ft, but they are moving around so much. Northerns can be had trolling spoons on deep weedline, about 14 ft. Bass are shallow at sunrise and go deeper as sun rises. Walleyes are still scarce.
Report is same as last week. Still no area lake reports.
Sunnies are still best bet on Waska. Get in about 14 ft. of water and use worms or small leeches with jigs. These fish are moving around, so you will have to locate them each day.
Starting to hear reports of walleyes being caught at dark and after dark. Use shallow running cranks in 4-8 ft. of water. This is early in fall for this pattern, but it is worth a try.
Bass and northerns are still active on Waska. No reports from area lakes.
