Walleyes are still hitting, again and again and again. The walleyes have become so aggressive many boats are hiring local kids along with the unemployed just to run the net as it is a full time job when targeting walleyes in 5-7 ½ feet of water with 1/8 oz jigs tipped with shiners under bobbers worked by the wave action. Many anglers are also reporting success working bright colored jigs aggressively along the bottom.

The crappie bite becomes more difficult as the crappies slowly begin to disperse into the deeper waters. Although many fish currently remain shallow and grouped up for the angler that is willing to work several spots looking pockets or schools of active crappies. Bets reports as of lately are coming from anglers working 1/16 oz jigs under bobbers tipped with small shiners suspended 18 inches off the bottom.

The waters are finally starting to warm up and the pike are liking it. Pike are still on the sluggish side and yet to fully but on the feed bags although the pike fishing gets better and better every day. The best results have come from anglers jig fishing larger plastic on heavy jigs such as the Stick-Um jigs, Esox jigs and J-Mac jigs. Blacks, browns and the old standby orange dropped into 4 feet of water and hopped back into 6 feet of water appear to be what these gators are looking for in a mid day snack.

Good Luck and enjoy the outdoors.
