(formly Skube’s Bait and Tackle)
Walleye – Walleye bite remains good overall for anglers. Anglers fishing with lindy rigs, spinner rigs, jigs (all tipped with leech or crawlers) and deep diving crankbaits are catching nice limits of walleyes. The walleye’s are being located in 15-25 feet of water around sunken islands, windy rocky shorelines and current areas.
Bass – Smallmouth Bass fishing remains excellent for bass anglers. Topwater, wacky rigs, tubes, spinnerbaits and swimbaits have been the ticket for consistent action.
Largemouth fishing has also been excellent, but the largemouth are being found in the weedbeds and lily pads. Anglers fishing weedless frogs in the lily pads are getting explosive results. Worms, tubes, and spinnerbaits are working in the weedbeds for largemouth.
Panfish – Sunfish and some crappies continue to be caught in shallow cabbage beds. Most crappies are still located just outside the cabbage beds, but as the cabbage reaches the surface and become more established, the crappies fishing will improve in the weedbeds. Crappie minnows, night crawlers, small leeches and jig and twisters are the baits of choice right now.
Stream Trout – Larger then average rainbows continue to be caught on many of the area stream trout lakes. Anglers are simply trolling spinner rigs (tipped with a night crawler), small rapalas, and small spoons are having the best luck, with limits coming in less then 2 hours.
