Fishing in Land O' Lakes!

Summer time patterns are in full swing

June 11, 2017 ·

With the rain still coming, the water levels are up, and on the chain or flowages that means current flow and that gives us another fishing location to search. On the chain and flowages check the top and bottom side of the neck down and funnel areas where eddies are being formed.

Panfish: Perch are in the weeds using a slip bobber tipped with minnows or tossing a 1/8th oz. jig with a small minnow seems to be doing the job. Crappies are done spawning now and are in the weeds and around structure. Slip bobber rigs with hook and minnow or a jig and plastic should do the trick. Bluegills are up in the shallows on the warmer lakes slip bobber rigs baited with red worms or waxies will catch these. Remember we do have panfish regulations on a few of our lakes in the area.

Northern: Will be found in and around weeds pitching jig and minnows or small spinnerbaits will get their attention.

 Walleye: These are being found in the weeds and on the deep weed edges during the midday pitching 1/8th oz. jigs tipped with fathead minnows or slip bobbers just over and around will catch you a nice fish fry also.

Muskies: They should be done spawning and starting to feed better now. Smaller Bucktails and small jerkbaits this time of the year are your best baits to go to right now.

Happy fishing!  Selective harvest is the way to go.  Colin Crawford's Guide Service, (715)891-2715.  Website is or you can also find Phelps Outdoors on Facebook. NPAA #94.
