Water temperature has cooled off a little more with the recent cold front, dropped to 63 degrees over the weekend. After two days of sun we are now back up to 66 degrees.
Only seeing an occasional Crappie coming in now. Some are being pulled out of weed lines and a few have been caught around dead trees.
Haven’t seen or heard of a resort guest catch a Walleye in 6 days.
The up and down water temperatures have hurt the Smallmouth bite, but haven’t shut it off. Leeches are working okay for them as well as senkos (wacky rigged) and swim jigs. Largemouth are more aggressive right now than the Smallmouth. Vibrant or bright colors seem to be working best, especially oranges, white and pink. The hot color for senkos has been pink (cotton candy) and pumpkinseed. The bite is soft, make sure you let them take the hook.
Bluegills are still being caught on worms along the edges of lily pads.
The up and down temperatures have somewhat stunted the Pike fishing, but we are still seeing a fair amount being caught. Spinner baits and spoons seem to be best.
