Tomahawk WI. Fishing Report
Bluegills, with the cooler temps the bigger gills moved deep. Weed edges in 7 - 9 feet is where most anglers are finding some nice gills up to 10" this week. An assortment of baits such as Bimbo Skunks, Cubby Jigheads tipped with Gulp Minnows and Mini-Mites all these have been catching fish this week. Use light setups such as ultralight rods and 2-4lb test line to get these bait deep, you can add a splitshot to the line but its better not too. Fish light!
Crappies, Deep wood structure during daytime, slip bobbers and fatheads set up just over the structure. evening hours switch over to spinners such as Joes Flies, BeetleSpins, Mimmic Minnows or Mepps and work these spinners along fallen trees with deep water nearby. Work your bait as close as possible with out getting snagged up in the branches.
Perch, better reports out of the Flowages with some real nice Perch being caught. Baby Crawlers or leeches on a 1/16 to 1/8oz. Fish Cabbage weeds now, found some up on the flats earlier this week with the bug hatch again.
Walleye's picking up this week with some very nice catches. Early morning (5:30am) found Walleyes along the grass weed edges in 2 -3 feet of water, shallow running crankbaits (Rapala's) in a natural color pattern. Daytime use Jigs and Leeches on deeper rock breaks.
Northern Pike, once again Mepps in the 4 or 5 size are hard to beat white or yellow are the colors this week. Smaller pike are in the shallower bays right along the weed edges, larger pike are out deeper along the deep weeds or just off the weed edges. Run your lures down deeper.
Muskies, Tougher week but a nice 46" beauty this week out of Nokomis caught on a Black and Nickel Cow girl JR. Bucktails and plastics still the baits to use. Anglers on Somo are using Slammer crankbaits and doing well.
