Look to Lake Pulaski and Buffalo Lake for walleyes during the
evening hours in 15 to 22 feet of water. Bass and northern pike are
weed-related and active on most area lakes. The sunfish bite
remains strong in 10 to 12 feet of water on Maple Lake, Rock Lake,
and Ramsey Lake. These same lakes are producing a few crappies
along the 12- to 15-foot weed edges during the evening hours. Small
jigs and minnows or tube jigs are working best.

The walleye bite in this area has become extremely difficult.
Fortunately, numbers of northern pike have filled the void.
Crankbaits or minnows worked along the 12- to 16-foot weed edges
are turning pike on Lake Auburn and Lake Pierson. Bass action
remains strong on most area lakes, but the thick weeds on Hydes
Lake seem to be producing a few bigger fish. The weeds also are key
to crappies and sunfish on Lake Riley and Lake Bavaria.

Sunfish and largemouth bass continue to be caught throughout the
weeded areas of the lake. The established weed edges are producing
an occasional walleye and some consistent northern pike action as
well. The evening hours are your best bet for a few more walleyes
on most of the main lake reefs. Shallow-running crankbaits continue
to be most productive for walleyes. Work the weed edges and weed
tops during the evening hours for crappies.
