Fishing report for May 21-28. The floods has caused the lake to rise to 13ft. over summer pool so the crappie spawn kind of came to an abrupt hault. They are suspended down about fifteen feet in water as deep as fifty. They can still be caught and most are spider rigging with live bait. I have had good luck pulling bottom bouncers on line counters so we can actually fish them suspended and pull them right through standing timber. We make the single hook spinner rigs only about 18 inches long so they can be trolled through timber. We catch a ton of crappie doing this and many other species as well like what they are intended for walleye.
The normally very shallow flats all have scattered willows on them and anglers are both casting and pulling bouncers on the flats and the walleye and white bass are doing very well. Whites off the drops and walleye up on the flats.
