Fishing Report for August 9, 2023
The beginning of August has brought with it some good fishing. Walleyes are being caught in a wide variety of locations across the lake right now. Many of the sand flats are producing plenty of walleyes both during the day and after dark. Try 14-16 foot of water during the day and slipping up to 8-10 foot of water once the sun goes down. The main lake rock structures are starting to kick out a few fish as well. Check off shore rock structures with a slip bobbers and leeches in 11-18 feet of water.
Weed lines in 10-12 feet of water are producing a very nice mixed bag of fish. It is not uncommon to catch walleyes, perch, sunfish, large mouth bass, northern pike, and rock bass all in the same spot. A slip bobber with a leech, or a jig and night crawler have been producing well. Don’t be afraid to pitch a jig and minnow in the same areas.
The muskie fishing has been solid. Main lake rocks and weeds have been producing a decent number of fish. Bucktails and topwater baits have been the most productive. As the the weeks progress watch for the shoreline structure to start to produce more and more.
