Summer keeps hanging on. Over the weekend we set new records in high lows. The temperatures have been in mid nineties over the weekend. Two weeks ago the temperatures were more seasonable and the water temperature was starting to cool. Fishing was getting better, the walleyes were starting to hit on the tops of the dropoffs and sunken islands. Fatheads, walleye suckers. crawlers, and crankbaits were getting good action. When then temperatures started to climb with water temps getting to the mid seventies the walleyes slowed down.
Bass are still on their feeding frenzy and are still in the shallows. Fish them with rubber worms or crawlers. The size limit is 14" and expect to catch alot of small ones as you catch the lunkers.
Panfish are doing great. Catch the big ones in 12-14 feet of water, use jigheads or sinkers to get the bait deep quick before the little ones can steal your bait. Hopefully we will have pictures soon on the website. We weighed a 1# 6.5oz Crappie from Nancy Lake last week. The big ones are hitting.
Trout action on the Brule seems to be picking up especially on the lower Brule. The Coho Salmon and Brown Trout are starting to migrate from Lake Superior. Worms and spawn bags should be working.
Muskie action is picking up. Anglers are casting their heavy hardware on area lakes such as Nancy and the Gordon Flowage. Day trips to the Hayward Lakes should give a chance at a new world record.
