Lake Emily turned on for walleyes and trophy crappies this past week. I weighed a crappie that was 3 lb. Not a lot of these fish being caught but they are big. Lakes Reno, Maple, and Waska are also good for crappies. No reports of sunfish being caught.
Looks like the gamefish season is going to end with a whimper on all area lakes. We will start to see a more consistant panfish bite. Look to last week's report for more info.
Much the same as past reports. Walleyes are slow on all area lakes. Best time would be night and then only a few are being caught. People are starting to fish for panfish. Area lakes like Waska, Reno,Maple, and some smaller lakes have been good.
Still the same as past weeks. Will sometimes get a late season walleye bite on area lakes, but that hasn't happened yet.
Exactly the same as last week. Walleye are very slow; 2 or3 being caught after fishing all night on Waska. No other walleye reports which is typical for the end of January.
Walleye activity has slowed up in all area lakes. Northerns and crappies are still active on Glenwood side of Waska. Also have reports of panfish being caught on Little Mary and Maple. Few walleyes being caught at night on Waska.
Area lakes are still good for ice fishing success. Look to Little Mary, Reno, Maple, and Waska for crappies and sunnies. Walleyes are still being caught on Waska, Reno, and Miltona. Northerns are active on Glenwood end of Waska. Weather will be warm this weekend so get out and enjoy!
All the same as last week. Still no good reports from area lakes. Ice is good on Waska. Use normal winter caution.
Happy new year! Walleyes still being caught on Waska, but they have slowed up. Late night or away from the crowds are the best. Jigs and fatheads or shiners with plain hook in 14-18 feet of water will do the trick. Crappies are very active on Glenwood side. Use crappie minnows and small jigs. No reports from other area lakes. Ice is 18 inches plus on Waska.
The report for fish is the same as last week. We have had a warm week but the ice is still 14" and safe.
