Central Wisconsin Outdoor Report 5-10-2013

Walleye fishing remains good on the Wisconsin River with lots of nice fish being caught by jig and minnow anglers and a few by guys tossing crankbaits in shallow water.

Bass fishing is picking up and a few lunkers have been caught. Bass up to and over the 20 inch mark are not uncommon at this time of the year. Look for most  fish to be associated with shallow rocks and wood in less than 4 feet of water.  Toss jig and beaver combos or run crawfish style crankbait to tangle with these feisty bronzebacks.

We have been on a good crappie bite this past week as these panfish are starting to make their move towards shallow water to spawn. Look for the crappies to be in less than 3 feet of water associated with wood and brush.  A small minnow suspended below a tiny bobber will tempt most crappies as they hang out near their spawning grounds.

Musky anglers south of Hwy 10 have had a good start to the 2013 opener with a few nice fish caught on the river system. Small bladed bucktails and twitch baits accounted for most fish but a few guys picked up some muskies  on larger baits like Bulldawgs and Suicks as well.

Turkey hunters are still banging away as the season comes to a close.  Now more than ever your skill in calling techniques is going to be very important. As the birds have been hunted hard for several weeks now they are going to be very reluctant to come to decoys but the savvy hunter that knows how to call will still get the birds to come to in.

Have a great week,
