June 24 Bass & Walleye

This has been one of the more unusual springs in terms of weather.  Water temperatures and weed growth are all several weeks behind.  This past week was probably the climax in terms of bass spawning with some hot and heavy action especially back on some of the portage lakes.  The Wilson group who went back to Caribou twice last week reported some fantastic action.  Walleye fishing is finally starting to establish some normal patterns.  Musky, on the other hand, is problematic with the lack of weeds and the scattered nature of their food source.  The Perkis group has normally done very well trolling for musky (they caught 14 several years ago) but struggled to put one in the net this year.

Such is the nature of fishing.  This week has started out with some fine walleye action.  The forecast is for some warmer temperature which should get things back on track for all species.  In the meantime here’s a few pictures of what happened here last week…
