Pleasant weather conditions and several days of light rain have made the fish a bit more aggressive in this area. Several lakes that are managed for walleyes have been producing nicely but perhaps the most popular with anglers in this area, have been bass, both large and smallmouth. Rock bass are permanently disqualified. Some good-sized smallmouths have been cooperating in the larger deeper lakes while largemouth bass have turned on as well. Live Target frogs and the new spinner rigs have really caught their attention. As far as panfish go, the sunnies are on the beds and the crappies may have completed spawning. I’ve had quite a few reports of crappies being caught in deeper water and only a few in the shallows. The other aggressive fish to raise some eyebrows have been the good-sized pike being caught. The limits on pike have changed this year and as we are in the North Central Zone the limit here is 10 with not more than two over twenty-six inches. All pike from twenty two-twenty-six must be released. Landing a pike in excess of thirty inches has been quite common. With all the new lures, rods and reels and other tackle we’ve brought in for this year, this should be a very good summer, for fishing that is. Despite the inconvenience of Hwy 38 under reconstruction, including a complete facelift and perhaps even a pedicure if you will, photos of our customers and fish they caught including some very big smallies. All in all, as spring reaches its end, fishing has been getting steadily better and all I can say is … It’s about time! Have a Great Weekend Everyone!!
