Weather has been hot, cold, and windy but fishing remains hot. Emily still kicking out walleyes on shallow running raps. Bass are crazy on Waska. Guys using just about anything to catch them. Walleye, northern, and crappie also good on Waska. Mary, Andrew, and Pelican are worth checking for walleyes. Excellent fishing, take your pick!
Check last week report, this week is the same. Good fishing all over the area which is typical for June. Go have some fun!
Last few days on Emily has been slow, probably due to wind. Still hot lake for walleyes, northerns, and crappies. Bass opener is Sat. and Lake Minnewaska will be hot! Use leeches or spinnerbaits in the shallows for bass. Starting to hear good walleye bite using leeches on Glenwood area. Crappie and norherns also are good on Waska. Lakes Mary and Andrew have been good for walleye. Lots to choose from, so go have some fun!
Lake Emily is the place to be for walleyes, northerns, and crappies. SSR 7 will catch all three species. This lake is super hot, so expect delay in launching your boat. Lakes Mary and Andrew are also producing walleyes. Minnewaska is good for crappies and northerns. Starting to hear walleye activity on Waska as water temps are rising. Lots to choose from, so go have some fun!
Weekend is going to be cool and damp. Water temps still too cold for walleye. Look to lakes Emily and Long to be good. Gravel roads to both lakes are soft and accesses are muddy. Start shallow on Waska for walleyes. If you want action and fish on Waska target the crappies. Good luck and have fun!
Early weather reports show a cool weekend with chance of rain. Look to shallow area lakes for best walleye fishing. One lake that will be hit hard is Emily. Other lakes to consider would be Long, possibly Minnewaska, and Pomme. On Waska, shiners will be choice for live bait. It has been a cool spring, so start shallow and work deeper. Good luck!
The weather has warmed up and so has the fishing. Crappies, sunnies, and bass are being caught in Starbuck marina. Bass have to be released, but panfish can be kept. Crappies on Glenwood side are bigger, but you need a boat to get them. Reports from Big Stone and Traverse has walleye activity very good. Our walleye opener is May 14. Please get your licenses before opener. I will do some area lakes to try in special report Wed.
Good panfish action on Waska, Osakis, and Alex chain of lakes. Starbuck marina is producing sunnies and crappies. Use waxworms or small leeches and jigs for sunnies. Crappie minnows and small white jigs for crappies. Bigger crappies being taken near ballroom on Glenwood end. Water is finally warming up, so head for favorite lake and have fun!
It has been one cold week. Water temp has not warmed up much. Crappies are active in Starbuck marina and fish hatchery bay. Not fast or limits, but this will come with warmer weather. Also reports of crappie on north end of Pocket Lake and Head of Lakes area on Osakis. We need warmer weather!
Ice is just about gone on Waska. Starbuck marina is starting to produce some crappies as of yesterday. Fish hatchery bay on Glenwood side started on Sunday.
