“Tough Weather Turns Down the Bite!’”

The last week of July I took out clients for smallmouth bass and walleye on the local river systems. Conditions were sun to early clouds, with an approaching rain front, west to northwest to west winds and water temperatures at 75.5 degrees. During the short-lived sun period in the morning, the boys were catching smaller bass on cranks cast along the cabbage beds. During the mid-morning, with the overcast skies, the smallmouth bite was spotty. Nice fish were being caught in groups, but we had to move around a lot getting, for example, six bites in one area, then two in another, and zero further down. The bite was on and off all day. We also got into pike feeding frenzies. Later Bob caught beautiful legal river walleyes. Great job! And Ian thumped more bass and then landed a beautiful 28 ¼” northern pike! Superb with a nice release! Just before the rain, we pumped in a nice 17” walleye and then headed for the trailer! Congrats to Bob & Ian! We had a great day on the water catching quality fish.

This past week my kids and I went out for a short outing. Conditions were tough with clearing skies and no wind, and water temperatures 74-79 degrees. We drove around and found bait fish on the graph and fished those places. Getting bites were really tough, but my six year old son landed a beautiful 13 ¼” crappie! Great job little buddy! This fish will be visiting his sister’s fish mounted on the wall. Later a walleye was caught and released. Congrats to Isaac, Faith, and Halle! They cast like troopers!

This week look for changing weather conditions. Hopefully we will get rid of the dog days of summer conditions!

If you are looking for a day on the water, give me a call at 715-966-1821. Well that wraps it up for this time. This is Roman Derleth reminding you: don’t slack off, and always keep your line tight!Last updated: August 12, 2018
