The bite this week has been pretty strong all up and down the system. From New Town to Garrison, there are places to get on a good bite if you know what you're looking for. We've even found some good big fish bites further west lately, so it's nice to see that going as well. More numbers west still typically, however; we've averaged 20-40 walleyes per day lately with a bunch of smallies and pike in the mix. Out east it's been more of a 5-15 walleye per day thing but a bigger average size, mostly 18-22 inch fish.
The program hasn't changed, casting jigs in 1-5 feet of water. Some days live bait works best, some days plastic, some days it just doesn't matter. We have caught a few bigger fish in 8-10 sitting near some steeper drops, but the flats have been great for numbers. Not much more to add other than the early summer bite is in full swing and it's a great time to go fishing! Oh! And the book, Fishing for More, is still available for pre-order on digital medium, print coming soon, so check out the link here and read the first few chapters for free on the books tab of this website. Oh! And Mike Connelly is destroying the Wall Hangers competition now with fish of 20, 22, 23, 23.25, and 24.75 inches the last two days! Enjoy some photos and videos!
