Jonny P Report June 8th

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.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
