Guide Lines with Pete Blicharz: Northern Wisconsin

In recent weeks cooling temperatures at night have brought water temps into the low to mid 70s pushing fish shallow in many area lakes. Fishing has been decently consistent with 1-3 bites every time out. Although the bite has stayed consistent, changing weather patterns have seemed to make the windows very short. Smaller double 8s and 7/9 Triggers cranked at a little bit faster pace seems to have the most action throughout the day with top waters moving fish close to dark. If blades aren’t moving fish medium size rubber ripped  aggressively over shallow weeds and down the outside edges can trigger neutral fish. Fish that do continue to relate to deeper structure are best targeted trolling .22longs and headlocks up to 4mph. It can be a bit of a grind right now but staying focused and on your toes will pay off big when those windows open.
