Fishing report: June 11 - 17

The week started out with nice weather, mix of sun and cloud. But a day or two later, the one word to describe the weather is WINDY. It is unrelenting, making it difficult to fish.

Fishing Report from the Duck Bay guides: Walleyes are in 14 - 30 feet of water on reefs and humps; green and pink jigs are working well. Northern pike are in 3 - 7 feet of water in weedy bays; Mepps #4 & 5 in any color are productive. Bass are in shallow sandy bay, and are being caught with small crank baits in crawfish color or top water baits. Muskie opens on Saturday!

The picture above is the biggest walleye of the season to date. Pictured is Dick Muller (and guide Sam) with Dick's 29 ½ inch walleye. Some of the nice catches this week are:
