Poor windy weather slowed fishing a bit this past week, but overall fishing
remains quite good. Anglers continue to catch walleyes with most all
presentations. The most popular include trolling deep running cranks,
shallower running cranks on leadcore, bottom bouncers with spinners, jigging,
and slip bobbering. Trolling's been best in the Flats near the Gap, out from
the Minnewaukan ramp, Mattern's Ridge, and the Stromme Addition area. For slip
bobbering, the trees between Holy Bay and Patience Point, Monkey Ridge, and
near the Mauvee have been the better areas. For jigging, try Patience Point,
Bud Point, Ft. Totten/Cactus Points, Foughty's Point, and Birkland's Point.
Spinners and bottom bouncers have been working well in the 14-25 foot areas in
most parts of the lake. Better areas have been the old part of Pelican,
Patience Point, Bud Point, Ft. Totten/Cactus Point, the 5 Crows area, Stromme
Addition, Foughy's Point, and Birklands Point. Pike continue to be caught
along with walleyes. White bass action has been slow and hit and miss. Perch
fishing continues to be quite good in Creel Bay and near the Casino, but the
fish have been small compared to past years. Good Luck and Good
