Water temp. is mid to upper 70s and the lake level is 648.53 (5.5′ low)
Mid to lower lake-The walleye are biting on night crawler rigs in 32′ of water.Concentrate your efforts on the gravel flats and points. Drag the rig slowly on bottom and when a fish is caught make multiple passes through that area.
The bass are being caught in these same areas out as deep as 40′. Jigging spoons in 1/2 and 3/4 oz have been producing a variety of fish including walleye, white bass, largemouth and spotted bass. While you are fishing these areas keep a look out for surface activity. The schooling should get better as the water cools. Cast the spoons to the surface activity and reel at a steady pace.
Until next time “Good luck and good fishin’!”
