MN Fishing Report 8-1-16
The walleye bite has been very good for this time of the year. Look in the12-14 foot depths on days with some wind or in the 18-22 foot depths on the calmer days. Leeches or jigs and fatheads have been both working. The shallower fish seem to prefer the leeches. Wind blown points or structure and weed edges are holding fish. Check the inside and outside edge of the weeds. Fish have also made there way out to the mid lake humps and islands so time to start checking these out.
Bass have been biting in the weeds on plastics like Berkley 7 inch power worms, twitchtail minnows, or leeches if you prefer live bait. Look in the
10-20 foot depths on mid lake humps and structure or thick cabbage beds on flats.
Pike are biting spinnerbaits tipped with sucker minnows or on jerk baits trolled over the weeds or along the weedlines.
Good Luck Fishing,
