May 25 Fishing Report

Fishing Report

Water temperature and wind was the story this week. The water got into the low 60’s and the fishing picked up. The beginning of the week the wind blew and fishing was excellent with both numbers and size. The holiday weekend saw calm winds and fewer big fish but still plenty of action. Good numbers of 13-15 inch walleyes with an occasional 20+ along with a few perch and northern kept the young anglers attention. Shiners were plentiful and the bait of choice for most. With the calm winds some used leeches or crawlers with a slower presentation on the rocks and were rewarded for their efforts. The next 2 weeks should be some of the best fishing of the year.
