Fishing has been pretty consistent with the bite, this time of year. Bass and Sunfish remain the staple species. Bass can be found on the outside weed edges in 8-14 feet and also on the inside edges in 3-6 feet of water. The best methods are Texas rigged worms and bass jigs. Some areas to fish are Cemetery and Anderson's Reef. Sunfish can be found on top of the reefs and also off of the breaks. Best approaches are a bobber and a tiny jig or just a jig over the side of the boat. Wax worms and panfish leeches have been working on Kegs reef.

The water temp is still in the low 80's, so don't forget- keep your bait cool in the water the bait shop gives you, & out of the lake. This will not only help you keep it alive to use another day but, also to comply with MN's new law prohibiting transport of lake water from place to place. If releasing fish, try to keep them submerged while you gently coax them back to swimming, after unhooked. Come to enjoy the lake, and share your fishing photos.
