St. Germain Area

Travel conditions on area lakes have improved dramatically. No
more slush, but there are still some nasty frozen ruts in most
places. Fishing has generally been fair, with panfish and northern
pike providing the most action. Walleye fishing is slow. Perch have
been biting on the larger lakes. Fish have been coming off weed
edges or out over deep water on the mud flats. Live bait has been
the key, with crappie minnows working the best. Northern pike have
been providing reliable action during daytime hours along weed
edges. Some fish are being caught over the tops of weeds now as
well, farther back into shallow bays. Tip-ups and large golden
shiners are the best bet for pike. Walleye fishing has been slow on
most lakes, although on some days you can find fish to catch, but
be prepared for a lot of time between flags. Live bait again is the
key. Small golden shiners and larger fatheads will work when the
fish get finicky.
