June 19 – June 26, 2023

Week #7 of the open water season
(6/19-6/26)

Main lake water temp: 68-70
Water temp in the bays: 70

Walleye

Walleye are still in transition. The best action has been in 4-10′ of water with most fish coming out of 7′. Wind blown points and rock piles have been the target areas. Floating a bobber and leech over the top of wind blown points and rock piles has produced the most action. Fishing the upwind side where the bugs and crawfish are is key. The numbers still are not where we would like to see them but the quality is for sure there. We have caught and released a lot of slot fish fish and even a couple of over the slot fish too.

For you deep water fishermen, there’s a lot of fish deep. However, I have not had any success deeper than 12′ of water. The deep water fish have been negative and are extremely tough to catch. To target these fish use a slip bobber and leech early and late in the day on top of the reefs. As the sun rises, slide down the break and pull lindy rigs or bottom bouncers with a spinner rig.

Baits of choice in my boat: slip bobber and leech

Bass

The bass are shallow and will remain shallow until mid august. Target primary structure with some shade to find big summertime footballs. Primary structure includes large boulders, downed trees, and boat docks. In the early morning or late evening hours top water baits can produce a lot of fish and usually will be much better quality.

Baits of choice in my boat: slip bobber and leech, rebel pop r (any top water of choice), soft plastics such as senkos and tubes

Check back in next Monday (7/3) to see next weeks fishing report!
