FROM BECKER'S RESORT
Shiners are still the bait of choice for the walleye bit that is still remains excellent this week.
They have moved out to the bars. Today try about 14 to 16 ft. of water. We are also seeing some really nice perch coming
in also, with fat heads working well on the Perch.

The fishing is good now! Shallow water walleyes are going quite well around the lake. The shiner bite is on for walleyes right now. Work shiners in 4 to 10 feet depths of water. The walleyes are keying on shiners now and they are really active. The bait schools are running well along the shorelines and the walleye are all over them. Run 1/8 oz. jigs and shiner, move along quickly till you hit a couple fish, work the area a bit, several more will be caught. Glow jigs and parrot jigs are working well, with some blue jigs has been very successful. Walleyes have been caught all around the lake and pretty easy to find. From the east side to Duck pass, Townsight to the Bird Houses has been hot. Sugar Island to Mallard is a great place to find walleyes. North shore Farley to the rock pile is producing. The Gap has been good for several large fish - which is quite fun to hit. Fish are moving throughout the lake - it's a great time to be chasing walleyes with kids - not hard to find at all.
The perch bite has been very good, also. They are ending spawn and all sizes are being caught together. Kids are having an absolute ball catching perch right now.
We are seeing good northern pike right now and pike fishermen are pleased with the success. The trollers are trolling mid-size crankbaits in the 4 to 6 inch range have been doing well. Some larger walleye are being caught on these rigs and surprising pike fishermen with a bonus.
The walleye bite had started out
a little slow, but started to pick up the last few days in about 6 to 12 feet
of water. The west side from the river to stony point has been good. The water is now in the upper forty’s. Minnows and jigs seem to be working.
The perch bite is great now that
they have sponed.
