According to our fishing expert John Muhich at Buck’s Hardware, Word on the street is the walleyes are shallow, as you might expect this early in the season.
Elbow, Crescent, Two Island, Hungry Jack and the Twin Lakes are all reporting good action. In fact most of the lakes are doing well. Pretty much anything is working except for leeches as it’s a bit cold for them. Minnows and night crawlers on jigs, Rapalas trolled or cast, it all seems to be working as long as it’s in four to eight feet of water.
As far as Lakers go, they were hot last week and fairly shallow. Try trolling spoons as well as the old jig and minnow set-up.
Northerns are also doing pretty well on sucker minnows in four to ten feet of water.
Saw a few pictures of Smallies caught this past week and they were beauts.
