Fishing Report 6-13-16
The walleye bite has been awesome, some of the reefs close to shore are already turning on due to the water temperature hitting that 65-degree mark, so keep those rock humps on your graphs. The magic depths are in that 20-30-foot range on average; with the weather being so unstable this past week, fishing in areas with a lot of current with a jig and frozen emerald shiner have shown to be successful especially in areas like Big Narrows for example.
Muskie opener is this coming weekend, set on June 18th. Muskies have spawned out and our bass and walleye fishermen have complained about catching several by accident on bass and walleye baits. Muskie must be released immediately before the season starts in the water alongside of your boat without any photo ops.
The walleye bite has hit the Flag Island Flats, the other day there were 15 boats all bailing fish in at 6 feet of water as the mayflies are pouring out of the mud. The main attraction has been by pulling a snell spinner tipped with either a minnow, crawler or leach. The rock humps at Four Blocks and Little Oak have been good. Personally I was out with Northwest Grain and we did very well in 14-18 feet and noticed a lot of launches up from the south shore trolling the mud.
See ya on the lake!
