With the walleye spawn slowly ending, things should start picking up
Rain and windy weather’s kept most fishermen off the lake this week. Those going out are reporting hit and miss fishing. One day the fishing will be great and the next nothing. With the walleye spawn slowly ending, things should start picking up and getting more consistent. Some of the better reports have come from the western part of the lake. Those areas tend to warm up first and usually kick off the early spring bite. For shore fisherman, anglers are fishing the Mauvee Coulee from Pelican Lake on up to Churches Ferry. The coulees to the north have slowed some and fishing there has as well. Other shore areas producing fish include most of the bridges around the lake and Channel A. In these areas anglers are pitching jigs tipped with leeches, plastic, or minnows; or cranks such as shad raps, countdowns, and wally divers. Boat fisherman are reporting some fish in the northern areas of Pelican Lake, Six Mile Bay, and at most of the bridges around the lake. Try pitching cranks such as shad raps and countdowns or jigs tipped with twister tails or powerbait into shallow shore areas, or jigging the bridges with leeches or minnows. White bass are just starting to show up in Six Mile Bay and Pelican Lake. It’s still fairly early and we expect things to really start taking off as the spawning ends and water temps increase. Good Luck & Good Fishing!!!
