Fishing Report for 6-28-22
We are looking forward to a great 4th of July weekend full of fishing and lots of fun community events! Go to our Community Calendar to find out what’s all happening this weekend!
As far as fishing goes, it’s a great time to catch that summer meal of fish! Fish are moving out of the shallows and transitioning to early summer patterns. Look towards the deep weed edges for panfish as they like to hide in structure. Fish near weeds are susceptible to jig minnow combinations and leeches under a slip bobber. The crappie bite has increased with active fish found in depths of 8-14 feet. Northern pike are active in 10-14 feet of water using large lures. The best depths for walleye vary, with some coming from 8-18 feet of water, and others found at the gravel/mud flats in 24-32 feet if water. While walleye anglers continue to have success using minnows, leeches and crawlers have become nearly as productive.
If you’re fishing on Eagle Lake, use a jig tipped with a night crawler in about 14 feet of water to find the walleye. Fish in the early morning and late evening to find the walleye on Big Kandiyohi, Andrew and Elizabeth lakes. If you’re heading out to Diamond Lake, you’re sure to catch some crappie and sunfish with wax worms or night crawlers. Some large sunfish have been pulled from Lake Florida in the past week as well. Smallmouth bass are providing lots of action as they move off their beds. If you’re shore fishing, stick to Foot Lake as Ringo and Calhoun lakes have slowed down a bit. Stay safe and have a happy 4th of July weekend!
