A mixed bag of weather
last week made for a mixed bag of fishing! When anglers could get
out on the water they did catch some perch, white bass, a few walleye
and even a northern or two. The time on the water was limited by
rainy and windy conditions.
The anglers that
produced a quantity in fish stated that the afternoon hours into the
evening was the best time of day. We did see a turn over from using
spikes to minnows as the temperatures started cooling down. Water
temperature slipped to 62-65 degrees which probably triggered the
start of the walleye bite.
As the early season
hunting seasons have started in the area the number of anglers on the
water setting the hook has decreased significantly. Those that do get
out on the water should do well.
