Sponsorship 2021
FISHING REPORT JUNE 1, 2021

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR WHEN FISHING PATTERNS ARE ALL OVER THE BOARD!

The bluegills/crappies are all basically shallow—7’ of water or less. Small tube jigs, bobber minnow/waxie combos, or even tiny crankbaits will land a bunch of crappies or bluegills this time of year. The walleyes are leaning towards any new weed growth—on the shallow flats or on the shore line drop offs. Jigs or live bait rigs tipped with a minnow is all that is needed trolled slowly along the bottom. Try 4” plastic swim baits on a weedy flat for something fun…and deadly. Of course, if you wanna catch pike, then rig up some shallow diving crankbaits or spinner baits and work the shallow weeds in the 5-10ft range. A good multi-purpose combo is a spinner rig tipped with a minnow and worked at a medium troll. This has the potential for both walleye and pike.
Lotsa Fish! Lotsa Fun!
