June 12th Fishing Report

Fishing Report

This past week saw the transition from shinners to leaches and crawlers complete. The water temp has finally hit the mid 60’s and the result is more aggressive walleyes. The walleyes, even with stomachs full of perch, are aggressively hitting crawlers and leeches. I have been pulling spinners, with crawlers out preforming leeches. On calm days a slower presentation, rigging with a leech, in the same areas can be very effective. The fish continue to pull away from the shore lines and are settling into their summer spots. The sand/weed flats and deeper edges in the bays all had fish on them this week. With clouds and wind 9-11 ft is a good starting depth. With calm winds and sun, the 12-15 foot depths are a good place to start.
