Water temps remained in the mid-70’s throughout July and the walleye fishing has stayed consistent for most of our summer. Nice coolers of fish the first couple days in August suggest we still have some time to chase walleye. Spoons and body baits are producing well for those trolling faster. More and more perch are coming in, mostly by those pulling crawlers and harnesses. Some are starting to anchor and target perch. We do have minnows in the marina store.
Inner Bay water temps are great this July, staying in the low to mid 70’s. Fishermen are catching a lot of fish within 4-5 miles of the marina. The sailboat buoys have been holding fish all summer. 14-20 foot of water has been producing limit catches. Crawlers, spoons, Flicker Shad have been the most popular baits.
June fishing has been good. Sailboat buoys. Dumping grounds. The Spark Plug. People are reporting that nice size fish are being taken in all of the usual spots. Crawler harnesses, spoons, and body baits seem to be working equally well. Remember to run some baits higher in the water column to target active suspended fish. Don’t rule out the shallower 8′-12′ water on days when the wind is blowing. Marina store is open by 6:00a.m. daily. Boat launch access is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Another batch of high winds with a North and East influence kept most fishermen on shore through the weekend. SW today with gusts 25-30 knots. Still hearing a few walleye being caught shallow. Not much to relay.
