Well, it’s been two weeks already since the opener. As usual it was cold, windy, and miserable. Despite the weather, our guests did manage to catch a few walleyes, northerns, and a few 20 inch bass. The biggest walleye that weekend was 6lb 12 oz. Because of the cold weather the water temps fell to 45 degrees, which pushed the fish pretty deep (20-26 ft). The best presentation seemed to be lindy rigging shiners and slip bobbers and leeches.
Over Memorial weekend we had a full resort and the fishing remained pretty steady. The bass and crappies are moving shallow. The bite has been really good for both species. There were numerous 17-21 inch smallmouth bass caught. There were a few northern and walleyes caught also. The biggest walleye was a 26 incher.
On a side note, my nephew brought his new boat up this weekend. It is rigged with massive lights for shooting carp with a bow. We don’t have carp in our lake but wanted to use it to cruise the shallows at night to see what we could find out there. I knew we had a lot of fish in the lake but I was AMAZED at the number of walleyes, muskies, and bass we saw in 3-6 feet of water that night!
June is typically a great month for fishing so I am looking forward to seeing what it will bring.
