According to our fishing expert Jon Muhich of Buck’s Hardware, we’ve got some heat coming as this weekend lines up to be busy.
The walleyes seem to be doing pretty well up at Seagull Lake, hitting in 12 to 18 feet along the weed edges and 20 to 30 off the rocks with jigs and crawlers and minnows being the bait of choice. Trolling with crank baits also works.
Two Island Lake is reporting walleye action in 8 to 15 feet jigging with minnows. Smallmouth bass were in 10 to 15 feet of water. Round Lake had action in 17 to 25 feet trolling with live rigs and cranks. The Northerns were also very active trolling with spoons.
Lake trout in Duncan and Daniels were going in 45 to 60 feet of water with the fish suspended. Spoons and jigs tipped with minnows and ciscoes worked pretty well. Greenwood Lake had fish down deep from 60 to 80 feet. Partridge Lake is another one to try -- the fish were in 50 to 60 feet of water. Spoons with ciscoes were the bait of choice here..
