The Ol’ Fisherman got snagged by an offer of free airline tickets to Las Vegas on his Smartphone so he took off yesterday for “Sin City” for the weekend. He said his luck on the lakes has been pretty poor lately so he figures he may as well try to change it at the craps tables.

Jon Muhich from Buck’s isn’t in Vegas this week and his fishing report is as follows:

Lake Superior is still the hottest fish story as Salmon and Lake Trout are being caught in front of the harbor. Oh, of course there also has been success from Hovland to Tofte, it’s simply interesting to me when the boats are cruising back and forth out front as if they were in some sort of shooting gallery. Most are fishing shallower than 100
feet while some are a little deeper looking for the Lakers.

Smallmouth would be your next best bet. Smallies are hitting in Hungry Jack in 8 to 16 feet of water. Crawlers and spinners are doing pretty well. Devil Track Lake is also throwing some fun bass into the mix. Try anywhere from 6 to 18 feet. Crawlers, minnows, Rapalas, and spinners will work. Heck, John says, toss a Cheeto into the water and you’ll end up with a bass.

Elbow Lake and Northern Light Lake reported a little action on
the walleye side of life. Try trolling with live rigs nice and slow. Leeches and minnows were the bait of choice.

That’s about it for this week. The Ol’ Fisherman will be back next Friday to present the report in his own style. Maybe he’ll have some advice as well on how to handle the craps and blackjack tables.
