Muskie action is good, with fish up to 48 inches being caught.
Depending on the lake, depths holding fish will vary from 4 to even
20 feet. Anglers are mainly using big suckers, suspending them off
the bottom. Artificials like big plastics also are producing fish.
Northern pike action is good, with fish up to 10 pounds not
uncommon. Fish weed areas in 4 to 12 feet. Walleye action is OK,
but it’s nothing to write home about. Fish mid-lake holes and humps
in 15 to 30 feet of water during the day, and then move shallower
toward evening, fish break lines or weedlines in depths to around
12 feet. Use a jig and a minnow. Crappies and bluegills are still
biting, but with hunting taking some of the attention, anglers are
not really targeting them.
