Northern Pike: These fish were caught while jigging walleyes in some sparse weeds, they will get more active as the water warms and more weed growth occurs.
Walleye: This is what I found around the area, some walleyes were still full of eggs, some still spewing eggs, others spawned out and the feed bag was on. I’m thinking they will finish up spawning this week. As the water keeps warming up, weeds will start to become more into play; keep your eyes on your locator. Jig and minnow combo will still be the choice for a while.
Panfish: Perch are being caught on jigs and slip bobber rigs alike. Crappies are starting to stage closer to spawning areas on the lakes that are in the warmer temps.
