Walleye Report

Crappie Report

Crappies are hitting very well and they are nice sized. Look for them grouped up in deeper water in about 15 to 22 feet of water near the bottom with minnows. Nice Bluegill are being caught with either whole crawlers or pieces of crawlers suspended over the top of the fish cribs that are in about 13 feet of water.

Musky Report

Musky fishing is in the consistent fall mode now with nice fish being caught on the beginning of sharp dropoffs near the original river channels, using rubber baits or live suckers in 10 to 15 feet of water and deeper.
