|BIG GREEN UPDATE & FISHING REPORT; Most fishing has taken a hit with this seesaw temp. swing of hot and then unseasonal colder temps. It needs to settle down with normal stable weather. The water temps. are over deep water 72* to 74* shallow water 74* to 76* there is now some alge starting to grow in the deep water. Still a problem with floating weeds on the surface making trolling difficult. Lots of boats on the lake with the warm days.
BASS LARGE & SMALLMOUTH; Look for the Largemouth in the weeds and under docks. Best baits should spinners, wormbaits and plastic type baits fished in and on top of the weeds and under docks. The Smallmouth will be by the rocky shorelines. Small crankbaits, live bait leechs and nightcrawlers best.
LAKE TROUT; Can be tough to find at times. And the bite will be on and off during the day. Find the bait fish and the trout will be there. The best set up has been plain Sutton type spoons, dodger & minnow or cutbait setup. Fish in water that is 100 to 165 feet deep. And troll slow close to bottom. Also may find them suspended after baitfish.
NORTHERN; The Northern bite has been good. Troll with live chubs or suckers along bottom in 25 to 40 feet of water next to deep dropoffs and along the weedlines.
WALLEYE; The Walleye bite has been fair. Best to fish early and late in the day. Troll with nightcrawler harness set up over the top of the weeds and deep dropoffs areas. Plainer boards fished with crankbaits will also work. May also want to try slip bobber setups baited with live leechs.
PANFISH BLUEGILL, CRAPPIES; Are next to and in the weeds out in the main lake. Look for 8 to 25 feet of water next to deep dropoffs. Worms fish with bobbers should work.
WHITEBASS; Are starting to show up over the deep water on the surface and down to 25 to 40 feet. Try trolling with dipsy divers and dodger and spinner combo. Or plain spinners trolled with a sinker setup back behind the boat.
