Fishing Report

Fishing got a little tougher than I expected it to over the weekend. The wind late last week coupled with bluebird skies and very low temperatures resulted in some tough fishing over the weekend. With warmer weather on the way, I'd expect fishing to pick back up.

Gills, crappie and bass are in various stages of the spawn. In the warmer sections of the lakes, gill nests can already been seen in the shallows, in the mainlake sections, bass are starting to spawn.

Pike and musky are shallow, but most of the fish pulled out to the first break with the cooler weather.

The cold front put a serious dampening on walleye fishing, but you can expect that to pick up as temperatures climb to a more seasonal level.
