See you here!
Bass, northern, sunfish, and crappies are all biting on Waska. Walleyes remain slow with some being taken after dark. Big weekend planned as we celebrate our 25 year anniversery. Lots of prizes and a customer picnic planned for Sat. evening.
Bass still great in the weeds at 4-6 feet of water. Use leeches or spinnerbaits. Reports of smallies being taken on hard bottom areas using deep running cranks.
Sunnies are hitting, but they move around from day to day. Waxworms are best bait.
Lots of northerns hitting now. Troll the weedlines with spoons or spinnerbaits for best results.
Lake Emily has been best lake in area for walleyes. Use shallow running shad-raps in size 5 or 7. Still getting a few walleyes on Waska and Mary using live bait.
Fishing is still basically the same as past two weeks. A few walleyes being caught on Waska and Emily. Mary has been better for walleyes, but Reno still has not turned on.
Bass are crazy on Waska. Most are up shallow in the weeds.
Sunnies inconsistent on all area lakes.
See last week`s report. Basically the same except walleyes are more consistent on Waska. Use shiner minnows or leeches with spinners in 16-18 feet of water.
Pelican Lake has been good for northerns and walleyes this past week. Mart is also starting to produce walleyes. Seems like fishing activity is picking up as we head into summer.
Bass and sunfish have been great on Waska this past week. Bass are in the weeds and shallow water. Use leeches or spinnerbaits and you will catch fish. Sunnies are all over the lake. Use live bait and small jigs.
Walleyes are inconsistent on all area lakes. The only thing I would recommend is using live bait and do not stay too long in one spot.
Northerns on Waska are starting to hit, but it will get better as the water warms up.
Walleye still biting on Long, Emily,and Waska. Most people are now using live bait, with minnows the best choice. Still no reports from Reno or Mary.
Crappies being caught on Waska between Woodlawm resort and the fish hatchery. Use small jigs with crappie minnows in and around the weeds at 4-5 ft.
Bass opens Sat. Use leeches or spinnerbaits around the weeds. This will be a super opener on Waska.
Weather reports look good, so get out and enjoy!
The three best lakes so far have been Long, Emily, and Waska.
Long Lake was the best for walleyes last weekend. Cranks and live bait was the ticket. The bite on Long has slowed and it is turning green already.
Emily was good for walleye, northern, and crappies. Use shallow running shad-raps for walleyes and northerns. Use fathead minnows for the bis crappies and walleyes.
Waska walleyes are being caught in 20-26 feet of water using live bait. Best area has been off the school house bar and the points. Crappies have been excellant along the north side in the emerging pencil weeds.
The sun is shining and the weekend weather report sounds great! Water temps are going to be cool, so my suggestion of shallow lakes should be right. We will be open extended hours this weekend. The summer walleye/fishing contest runs from 5/15-7/31. Bring your fish in and we will get a picture of them.
