Northwest Wisconsin Fishing Report – August 4, 2021 – video

Panfish: There’s a fantastic evening bite taking place from that 7:30 to 9 p.m. time frame. Both nice ‘gills and crappies are destroying bugs and small minnow plastics fished under a slip float in 3-4 feet of water over sand flats, off shallow points, shallower weed lines and even inside the weed pockets. Midday bite has been fair with fish being caught on panfish drop shot set-ups and fishing vertically over 10-16 feet of water with trout worms, panfish leeches and Gulp products.

Bass: Several nice bass are being caught fishing deep weed lines and deep underwater points with jig worms, shakey heads and Carolina rigs. Also a very good bite on wacky worm set-ups over the tops of shallow weeds towards dusk.

Walleyes: According to several of my walleye peeps in the area, pulling Rapala’s or flicker shads in 8-10 feet of water from dusk into mid-evening are killing it. Several 5- to 8-pound fish have been caught in the last two weeks, with one pushing 10 pounds. Also leeches and crawlers midday off the deeper ends of rocky points are producing fish.

Muskie: Muskie guys are boasting about a great topwater bite taking place in the area. One fish measuring 48.5 inches was caught on Deer Lake and one pushing 48 inches was nailed on Bone Lake, both during the evening.
