A lot of rain the past week means some dingy water and full rivers. Maybe the federal fish and wildlife are worried that the fish might drown now.
Before the rains, the fish were biting. Lake North has been producing walleyes and some good-size ones.
Michael Johnson fishing below the powerhouse using a white twister tail landed a 6-pound, 12-ounce walleye.
John Loveless fishing on the Lake Babcock side of the bridge on Lake North has been catching drum and quite a few shortnose gar. One of his drum weighed just under 12 pounds.
A lot of drum have been caught using crawdad, which we have now. I haven’t found enough crawdads in years and bullfrog were not seen much either, but maybe things are taking a turn for the better with crawdads showing up again. The bullfrogs are in better numbers, too. A little extra water may be helping.
