Fishing Report. Crappie, walleye, catfish, and bass


May 30th, 2019Fishing report

Crappie are still the hot topic even with the water up 18.75 feet.  The lake is approaching record levels with more rain in the forecast.  Some ramps are still accessible , but it wouldnt hurt to check it all out before making a trip.  

If you want to catch crappie, you need to troll, or drift along with the spider rig.  Most of the fish are suspended in about 15 foot of water in water up to 60 foot deep.  I usally troll at 1.5 mph.  If you don't want to troll, put some minnows down there and just drift in the wind.  they will eat sooner or later.

walleye have surprised me.  There are still some fish in depths up to 35 feet deep, and some other fish are way up in the brush.  worms on a jig head is your best bait.

catfish are feeding up pretty heavy in the inflowing waters.  find a small feeder creek ater one of these rains and get about as far back as you can.  again, worms are the best bet

bass are in the brush also, however i have had several post spawn fish hangning on points in depths as far down as 30 feet.  plastics or jighs are your best bet.
