The winds have finally calmed after almost a week of nearly unfishable waters. We weren’t sure what to expect going out yesterday, but things have remained pretty much the same. The trout action to the north was still amazing. Nice size and great numbers. We are also still consistently picking at some kings in deeper water to the west. 7-12# average but usually grabbing a nice one or two as well. The larger kings have been picking out the spin doctor fly combos on my divers. While the younger fish have preferred spoons on coppers and leads. The standard size spoons seem to be the ticket there. Pink Dots Spinnie with the Big A fly as well as the Wonderbread spinnie with Auqua Gold Glow fly. For spoons we’ve been seeing good action on Moonshine Silver Flounder and the DW Sexy Veggie.
We’re still hearing of some limited success on the piers as there are some bait fish in there and silver fish to follow.
The Rock Bass bite is on. Fishing the drop-off with pretty much any technique of your liking will produce large numbers of nice fish. In that 80′ of water right on bottom, we’re also seeing nice Laker action. Cowbells and Dodgers have been the key for the Lake Trout.
Lower – Crawler harnesses trolled super slow have been producing some ok (15-17″) Walleye this week. We also picked up a few incidental pike using walleye methods.
Upper – We’re still seeing some decent pan fish bites, starting to move a little deeper as this water warms.
