The lake is back rising again and the water temps are about 64 and the crappie spawn is on. Everything is in the willows and flooded weeds. I have been catching a bunch of male bass in with the crappie and even caught a muskie this week.
We are using a slip bobber and an aberdeen hook with a minnow on it. Set at about 15 inches. You must try several spots until you get your first male crappie then throw on the brakes because he will have a bunch of buddies.
Like I said everything is in the willows and that includes walleye. They like main lake willows on points, especially points that have gravel. We are using my 3/16oz. Deep Ledge Jig Spinners and a twistertail. They probe the willows better than a bait with a treble hook. The walleye fishing will get red hot over the next couple weeks and we will be switching up after this week to do more walleye fishing.
The white bass are still up in the rivers but will soon be out on the main lake busting on shad.
