This past week of fishing has been tough at times, and good at times with smaller feeding windows. The weather has played a role in this with lots of rain, cold front conditions, and hot steamy high pressure causing the water temps to jump from 75 to 82 degrees.

Day 1 with client’s north east wind after a cold front. We fished walleye in the muddy areas casting plastics. Light biters in the morning. Bob got us started with a nice 17 incher, good job and nice release into the live well. The perch were being aggressive at times and we caught some bonus jumbo perch right in with the walleyes. Midday we fished the weeds, we harvested nice slab crappies on beetle spins. While casting a rubber lizard into the weeds for bass, Bob got hit hard and scored a beautiful 22” walleye, great job and good release! Then a nice largemouth bass came out of the weeds on a spinner. The afternoon bite was good for walleye, catching lots of fish but just short of the mark. Jim was having fun catching walleyes, that’s good stuff. Congrats to Bob and Jim we had a great day!

Day 2 fishing the river. Cold front wind NW to N and drizzle. Smallmouths’ were biting in the morning, fishing active weed beds, throwing cranks and lizards. Fishing was tough mid-morning, and really tough when the wind switched to the North. We found perch in the weeds all over, but that was not our target. Early afternoon the weather was changing with the sun coming out, the fish started to bite again. Jim was on fire catching SMB, walleye, and pike on the beetle spin. Congrats to Bob and Jim! Jimmy gets the trophy of the day with the most fish, great job!
Day 3 high pressure, hot sunny no wind. Early A.M. fishing the weeds lots of bites casting beetle spins. Fish were biting short and not making it into the net. More weeds were fished getting more bites, but only a pike was caught. Mid-morning we made a walleye drift and had a short window catching good, quality fish. A beautiful 23” walleye was caught and released. Then Ryan got a nice walleye just near the mark, great job buddy! The last fish was a nice 18 incher. Soon after we noticed the water temp spiked into the 80s, then it was time to head to the trailer. Congrats to Ryan he did a great job fishing on a tough day!
