August 10th Fishing Report

You’ll catch walleyes during the day with some wind or clouds, but if the lake is flat, the bite is tough. Cover water with spinner rigs and leeches or crankbaits along shoreline breaks, points, and main-lake structure in 12 to 15 feet. There have also been walleyes caught on the edges of the bars in 16 to 22 feet on live-bait rigs or slip bobbers and leeches. Catching perch is not an issue, but finding bigger fish has been. The schools with bigger perch in them seem to be constantly moving and tough to stay on top of, but you will pick up a few nicer fish while walleye fishing. Look for pike along shoreline weeds or gravel areas that used to have abundant weeds.
