For those of you fishing, we have a special going for a limited time on regular leeches. $2.99 for a pack of 15! Great to keep in the cooler and use for sunnies, crappies, bass or even walleyes!
Water temps have been fluctuating between the upper 70's and low 80's during this hot spell. Sunfish are still in a spawning pattern. You can find them on their beds generally in the shallows and very active most days. Crappies have been a little deeper, along with bass and walleye activity. Areas like Pillsbury Reef, Center Reef, North Reef and the north side of Coney Island are all good locations to try for crappies and bass. Walleyes can be found there too, but also off Kegs Reef. Slip bobber fishing has worked for some, but also there have been reports of anglers trolling spinners with fatheads off the weeds of some of the reefs mentioned above. For the crappies, crappie minnows have been good, but also leeches or a chunk of crawler have worked well too. Unless you plan to use artificial lures for them, bass love crawlers and leeches as well!
We'll see you on the lake!
