Fishing and Outdoor Report- Washburn County

1/26/17- Reported by Long Lake Bait, Tackle & C-Store

Pan fishing is good right now, lots of Bluegills, Crappie (are out there but a bit on the slow side) and some nice perch, mostly found in the 7' - 12' range, but a few reports of 20' as well.  Folks mostly using crappie minnows, Waxies and Spikes, with a few plastics.  Walleye seem to be liking the morning and evening hours using Suckers and Shiners suspended in the 12' - 24' range.  The Northern are finally getting some size to them too, the bigger the bait the better with large Shiners and Suckers!   We are fully stocked with nice fresh bait and other items! Our "Off Season Hours" are: Tuesday - Saturday 7 a.m. - 5 p.m./ Sunday's 7 a.m. - 3 p.m. Closed on Mondays.

 

With the warmer temps we have lost most all of our snow cover so travel with CAUTION.  Reports from anglers coming in on ice thickness are ranging from 9"- 16" around the lake.  REMEMBER ice isn't always what it seems and ice ridges can develop quickly, causing thin ice. Fluctuations in temperatures can also quickly reduce the thickness of the ice.
