South West Minnesota Fishing Reports
Southwest Minnesota Fishing Report - March 6th, 2014
Posted on Thu, 06 Mar 2014
The northeast side of Budd Lake is producing crappies and sunfish in 14 to 17 feet. The north bay on Lake Sissiton is worth hitting for panfish in eight to 11 feet. The east side and southeast corner of Amber Lake are giving up crappies in nine to 11 feet.
There’s an evening crappie bite with glow jigs and minnows at Madison Lake in 10 to 12 feet. Look for sunfish and a few crappies in Baker’s Bay on Lake Washington in eight to 12 feet.
Perch continue to hit near Kite Island, Rocky Ledge, and the Peninsula area of Big Stone Lake in 11 to 13 feet. The Bayview area of Big Stone is producing crappies during the evening hours over 12 feet.
Crappies continue to be found at night on the Glenwood end of Lake Minnewaska in 15 feet. You’ll also find sunfish in this area in 12 to 15 feet, but these fish are moving every day, which means you have to drill a lot of holes to stay on them.
Fishing reports have been limited due to an inability to travel on most lakes. Diamond Lake has a few roads and its producing sunfish and perch during the day and crappies at night in 18 to 22 feet. Look for suspended crappies and sunfish over 20 to 30 feet on Willmar/Foot Lake, while Long Lake is giving up perch in six to nine feet.
