Fishing season has begun, and here are some fishing reports from the area...
-Anglers are having good success with both walleyes and crappie on the opening weekend of the fishing season.
-Best bite for walleyes is coming in low light hours, either early morning or early evening. Fish 4 to 6 feet off of weed edges, such as cabbage or milfoil, or off bends or flats where there's some current. During the day anglers can fish 18 to 22 feet, but the bite will not be as strong. Use a quarter-ounce or sixteenth-ounce jig tipped with a fathead. Some nice walleyes are being caught.
-Crappies are hitting shallow, in depths from 2 to 6 feet. The crappies have begun their spawn in the smaller, warmer lakes. Use a crappie minnow, or tube jig. Some anglers have said that waxies are also working.
Enjoy the beginning of fishing season!
