This might be the best fishing of all year! Lake Emily has been great for walleyes and northern. These fish are being taken on either cranks or live bait. Bass bite on Waska has been great. Spinnerbaits or leeches in shallow water will take bass. Walleye and northern fishing has also been super on Waska. Walleye and crappie are biting on Reno. Walleye are also being caught on Mary and Andrew. Go fishing!
Walleyes being caught on Emily. Shallow crankbaits or live bait, makes no difference. This bite will last until water temps get too high. Walleyes being caught on Waska in 24-28 feet of water using jigs and minnows.
Weather has slowly improved this past week. Still no HOT bites. Seems to be a lot of activity on Emily, Waska, Reno, Mary, and Andrew. All looking for walleyes. Lots of lakes to choose from. Bass season opens tomorrow and Waska will be great!
Whoa, not good! Still don't know what happened except the weather was unstable. And it has been unstaple all week. Too much wind and rain to have any accurate reports. Hopefully weather improves and the fishing will get better.
The eve of fishing opener and we are all set! We will be open at least until 10:00 Friday and longer if need be. Rest of summer we will be open until 8:00 in the evenings. It sounds like jigs and minnows are going to be good. We have crawlers, leeches including jumbos, and minnows including golden shiners and spot-tails.I would start in 6-8 feet of water and work deeper. Check the beaches, points, and bars. My lake choices would be Pomme, Long, Waska, Reno,Emily, and Mary. Bass season opens also, but it is catch and release only.
Panfish have been inconsistent on area lakes this past week. Crappie fishing on Waska has been better on Glenwood side. Sunnies are starting to be caught in Starbuck marina. Everyone is looking forward to walleye opener on 5/9/15. My early prediction is it will be great! Hopefully the weather is good.
Panfish stopped biting early part of week due to cold water temps. Sunfish and crappies started hitting again the later part of week due to warmer water temps. The fishing should continue to be good as water temps will be warmer.
The panfish bite is on! Sunnies are being caught in Starbuck marina using small leeches or waxies with small jigs. No crappies yet. Crappies are biting in fish hatchery bay on Glenwood side using crappie minnows and small jigs. Crappies and sunnies are being caught on north end of Pocket lake. The east side of Reno is good for crappies. Also check out Pelican for crappies.
Minnewaska is ice free as of Monday night. The water has to warm up for the crappies to start biting. Also check out Pelican Pocket and Reno.
Open water fishing this week! Starbuck marina is completely open and fish hatchery bay is half open. These two areas on Waska will be the first places to catch spring time crappies. Other areas to check would be Pocket lake and Pelican lake.
