Time has flown this summer and I can't believe
it is half over. But like they say time flies
when you are having fun. And we have lately, The
fishing has been outstanding the last few weeks.
We've had some good walleye action which is
weird because July is usually our slow month.
The big lakes have all been good to us. Gull,
Whitefish, North Long, and Edwards have all
produced some walleyes. We've been using variety
of techniques and it seems to change every day.
Lindy rigs and redtails or leeches, jigs and
fatheads, or a spinner rig and a leech or
crawler will work. We haven't had to look deep
yet. I think the weedline out to 24 feet is the
best place to start looking on our local lakes.
Bass fishing remains good as they are starting
to hit the deeper weedlines. Time to grab some
jigs and plastic worms. We've also been catching
some big fish up in the matted grass and lily
pads using frog lures. It has been a blast
catching them up on top. The pike fishing is hit
or miss. Not as good as it usually is for this
time of the year. Same with the crappies. They
have been a little harder to find. Lots of
sunfish for the kids or a good fish fry. Small
worms or leeches are doing the trick. Our guide
boats have a few openings in July if you want to
get out and set the hook.
