Minocqua Area Fishing Report

High pressure and cloudless skies could be to blame for some of the tough fishing this past weekend.  Yet for certain anglers and certain species windows of opportunity existed.

Bluegill:  Good-Very Good
– Despite some “dead” zones, good reports on some very nice fish.  Anglers finding most “good” fish in 12-16’ of water.  1/2 crawlers, leaf worms or waxies placed on small 1/32 oz jigs or suspended on #6 Aberdeen hooks below slip-floats.

Musky:  Good
– At times very tough, but windows of opportunity arose (as they tend to) and the anglers on the water at those times did extremely well.  Several reports of anglers with fish of 45-50” reported.  Bucktails, spinner baits, soft baits and even top-water towards dusk.  Not a lot on suckers yet, but with many lakes having surface temps of 62-64 degrees, that shouldn’t be long.
 
Largemouth Bass:  Good – Good reports of anglers working outside weed edges with 7” worms Carolina rigged, tubes and drop-shotting 3” Wacky Worms or Texas rigging Sweet Beavers and other creature baits.
 
Northern Pike:  Very Good-Good – Spinner baits best over weed tops in 8-12’.  Chatter baits and 4 ½” swim baits also effective.
 
Crappie:  Good – Working deep (14-18’) wood or coontail edges.  Small minnows, Mini-Mites tipped with waxies and 1/16 oz Slo-Poke jigs with a 2” Paddle Tail swam along edges very effective.
 
Yellow Perch:  Good – Numbers of perch in and along cabbage flats of 8-12’.  Drowned wood a good draw.  1/2 crawlers best bet.
 
Smallmouth Bass:  Good – Drop-shotting 3” Gulp minnows or 3” Senkos over 22’ gravel humps.  Tube/jigs along 14-18’ coontail edges also effective.
 
Walleye:  Good-Fair – High pressure took its toll on decent bite.  Gravel humps of 14-24’ using 1/8-1/4 oz jigs tipped with large fatheads.  Some deep sandgrass action using Walleye suckers on Lindy rigs.
 
Morning had been cold, (low 38 degrees) now just cool.  Daytime highs in upper 70’s this week.  Redtails unavailable still, substitute with blacks or Walleye suckers.
 
Water levels still high, but Flowages down a little.  With surface temps in lo-mid 60’s but daytime highs in upper 70’s, don’t expect much change in water temps.
