May 29 Fishing Report

Fishing Report

Last week we saw the water temps go from the mid to upper 50’s to the upper 60’s and even some 70’s in some of the shallow bays. While some of the walleyes have moved off shore, others are still in the shallows especially in the evening or during the day with a good wind. A nice mixture of eaters (15-19) smaller (10-14) and slot fish (20-26) made for some good memorial weekend walleye fishing. For those that just wanted action there was plenty of that. A mixed bag of perch, northern, rock bass along with a walleye or two had smiles on a lot of peoples faces. The mixed bag was in many of the shallow spring walleye spots including, The Narrows, Joe’s Landing, Star, 2 nd Duck and in Agency Bay. Shinners are still the bait of choice and probably will be through this weekend. The leach bite has picked up and as always crawlers are affective for those that know how to fish them. For those proficient at fishing the weeds you will be rewarded for your efforts in both Sucker and Portage Bays. Don’t forget to check out the weigh ins for this weekends walleye tourney.
