“The Heat is On and so are the Fish!”
Last week my dad and I did some pre-fishing for a musky tournament which will be held on the Eagle River Chain of Lakes this coming weekend. Conditions were breezy with northwest winds, mostly sunny and the water temp was only 62 degrees midday; that’s pretty chilly. We mostly scouted around using electronics to find baitfish and good weeds. Some casting was done, and we got some “I don’t know bites” with throwing artificial lures and no hooks. That’s right, “no hooks”; we don’t want to catch any fish until it counts. Hopefully this weekend the water temp will warm up and the fish will bite!
Just before the weekend Uncle Paul and I went bluegill fishing. The weather was high pressure, sunny, very warm, and water temp was 72 in the bays. We cast slip-bobbers and leaf worms very shallow. The gill bite was fantastic at times catching many large gills from 9” to 10.5 long. We kept a few for a small meal and released all the big ones for spawning; that’s really important to practice “selective harvest”! The evening bite Isaac came along and we made some drifts for walleye. We casted jigs around islands where baitfish were stacked. I got us started with a sub walleye, then Paul hooked a good crappie in 12.5 to 13 inch range with a good release! Then it was fish on! We all caught and released nice keeper walleyes. Isaac was smiling from ear to ear when he got to reel in his nice walleye. Way to go bud! Big fish goes to Paul with his beautiful 20.5 incher, great job and good release!!
