Wausau Area

Instead of tapering off, as is usually the case at this time of
year, the walleye bite in the Wausau area is getting steadily
stronger. The evening and late-night bite has started to progress
into an afternoon bite, and anglers are getting some nice eaters,
with some fish hitting the 20-inch mark. While targeting walleyes,
anglers also are picking up some very respectable northerns. Fish
in the 28- to 36-inch range are relatively common. To target these
walleyes and pike, run tip-ups in 8 to 16 feet of water, baited
with golden shiners or sucker minnows, and suspend them about a
foot to 18 inches off the bottom. Crappies and bluegills are
hitting well, and some jumbo perch are showing up, as well.
