Fishing Report, April 12, 2023
Fishing Report 4/12/23
Still catching crappie in shallow water, with several nice fish making their way to the scales. Vinnie Canfield weighed in with a 1 lb 5 oz fish and Kevin Cole's was 2 lb 5 oz. Jason Tate also had two nice fish weighing 1 lb 6 oz & 1lb 12 oz. Fatheads or small jigs under a bobber will work wonders.
Some pickerel and bass are also being caught, either fishing with bait, casting or trolling spinners or small rapala husky jerks.
Some trout have also been caught fishing shallower water or trolling along the shorelines with phoebes or small stickbaits.
The Knee Deep Club will be holding their first two contests of the year on April 23 for trout and pickerel. Check out their website or call the shop for more info.
Some walleye have been caught also, fishing in the evenings, casting rapala husky jerks. For now it is catch & release only with the season opening back up on May 1st.
Have a great week ... Laurie Murphy, owner Dow's Boat and Rental
