   Minocqua Area Fishing Report

Hopefully this is the start to a real summer for our anglers.  Some stable, summer-like weather will hopefully start putting fish more into their typical summer patterns.
 
Crappie:  Good-Very Good – Anglers finding good numbers and very good sized Crappies (a 15”er topped the charts this weekend) using 2” ripple shad on 1/32 oz jigs or 2” twister tails worked over weed tops of cabbage in 8 – 12’.  Boathouses near deeper water producing Crappies on minnows, tiny tubes and mini-mites.  In Flowages, work drowned timber of 14 – 18’ with medium fatheads.
 
Bluegill:  Good-Very Good – Enjoying the warm up.  Small leeches, thunderbugs and tiny jigs tipped with waxies.  Gills active from mid-morning on, top-water action on poppers and dry flys towards dusk.
 
Northern Pike:  Good – Best on 3 ½ - 4 ½” swimbaits as well as lipless cranks over cabbage flats of 6 – 10’.  Spinnerbaits and chatterbaits also working in these areas.  On cold mornings (47 degrees at launch 7/17) chubs on suckers of 4 – 6” on jigs or slip-floats best choice.
 
Yellow Perch:  Good – Showing up with some quantity and quality along coontail edges with a sandgrass “lawn”.  Soft shell crayfish (frozen), ½ crawlers, medium fats under slip-bobbers or on Lindy style rigs.
 
Largemouth Bass:  Good – Hard to beat Wacky worms in and around the weeds.  Small spinnerbaits with nickle blades and gold or silver/blue skirts over coontail tops.  Tube jigs down the sides.  Jig and creature combos in morning hours.  Return to top-water frogs, Pop-R’s at dusk.
 
Smallmouth Bass:  Good – Working same coontail edges/sand grass flats as larger perch.  Drop shot craw imitations, 3” Senko’s or 3” Gulp Minnows.  X-Raps and Husky Jerks on inside weed lines in the A.M.
 
Musky:  Fair-Good – Fish starting to be “seen” more.  Bucktails bringing best overall action but smaller 6 – 8” swimbaits and twitch baits also moving (and tagging) fish.  Top-water action heating up as Whopper Ploppers, Pace Makers and Suicide Ducks producing.
 
Walleye:  Poor-Fair  – Tough summer so far.  Even trollers struggling.  Best has been deeper 16 – 28’ dragging Lindy rigs.  Big crawlers, XL leeches and 4 – 5” red tails
 
With a week of highs in the low 80’s, water temps should stabilize into the mid 70’s, top-water action will dominate the evening Bass and Musky action.  Largemouth are already being spotted feeding on schools of mimic shiners over coontail beds.  Crappies filling in summer haunts finally!
