Fishing Report for week of July 5th.

Fishing Report- Swanson’s Bait & Tackle

Brought to us by Fish On Outdoors with Bill Hornung


Happy 4th

Panfish/Crappie-Start looking a little deeper for these fish. Action is still good up close to weed edges at low light, but during the day fish small jigs in the cabbage for action. Light jigs that give a slow fall are your best bet. You may need to switch up colors if action slows.

Walleye- DOG DAYS! Fishing can be tough right now. Rising water temps and light winds have fish scattered at various depths. Cover water with spinners/bouncers rigged with crawlers is a good day time presentation. Trolling Shad Raps at low light is another good option for fish.

Bass-Fish seem to have pushed off weed edges and can be found in mid lake structure along deeper edges. Wacky rigged senkos worked along these breaks will produce fish.

Muskie-Fish are being caught!! Casting rocks and weeds is producing fish.


Good Luck!
