Tight Lines by Walleye Wylie

Lake Kabetogama

Nothing has changed much from last week. We are still fishing the shallows using spinners along the weed edges, but fish are starting to move a little deeper with 12-17 ft range. Crawlers or Leeches with a long leader or spinner are working the best.

Be ready for a change coming though.

Pretty soon the fish will be transitioning to the rock points and reefs soon.

 

Dates are still available for guide trips here in June and July!!

Fishing has been heating up in the shallows. Different techniques have been producing lots of quality fish. I have been starting the morning casting 1/16th oz and 1/8th oz jigs tipped with a night crawler in 10 ft of water. As the day moves on, we transition to spinner blades painted by JG's custom lures, tipped with a leech or crawler in 10-20 ft of water. Towards the evening, I will put on shallow diving crank baits like a shad rap number 5, and troll with them at 2 mph in less than 13-15ft of water. We've been getting lots of strong wind and sunny days, so the weeds are just starting to grow.

Kabetogama has been producing so many quality fish this year and I have been blessed with this fishery. With that being said here's what I have to say about it. Shallow water fishing has been stellar this last couple of weeks, I have been dragging bottom bouncers and spinners along weed lines from 9'-12' ft of water. Tipping the spinner with a crawler has been the best as well.

In the deeper water from 15 ft and beyond, I found traditional 1/4 oz jig tipped with fathead minnow successful and has been turning on the walleyes and saugers in good quantities but also producing lots of small walleyes from last year's hatch. This is great sign for our future fishery awesome to see.

Leeches with lindy's are still producing some action during the day but it's nice to change things up. We have had lots of rain lately, so the shallow water has been more of a go to for me before we transition back to deeper water with sunshine and heat!
