With warmer weather on the way it should bring water temperatures up and help get these fish done with spawning.

Muskie: These fish are being found on the weed edges and the first break away from them. Tossing bucktails and jerk baits are a couple of good choices now.

Northern Pike: You can find these toothy critters in amongst the green weeds, biting on jigs or spinners.

Walleye: These have been found on deep weed edges using jigs tipped with minnows, leeches, or crawlers.

Bass: Largemouth are being caught in and around the weeds, they are hitting all sorts of baits including live bait, spinnerbaits and crankbaits. Smallies have been caught using crankbaits and tube jigs.

Panfish: Bluegills are in the new weed growth  feeding on little bugs, but slipbobber rigs tipped with small leeches, red worms or waxies will get you a fish fry. Perch are using the new weeds also and are being caught on small minnows or leeches under slipbobber rigs. Crappies should be finished with spawning by now, so keep looking in the weeds using slipbobber rigs tipped with small minnows and small plastics.

Information for this week’s fishing report was provided by Colin Crawford from Colin Crawford’s Guide Service.
